A soccer game, a bone, and a sleepy boy on the couch made a little blogging possible this morning.
Yes, this is what I looked like this morning. Pretty sight, eh?? But I had a great recipe for feeling better - Wailin' Jennys on repeat and a bit more crying (By Way of Sorrow - amazing song), hot peppermint tea (my favorite), snuggles with my boy, and laughing and playing Mario Brothers.
The train ride that the kids didn't want to go on. Turned out to be ok though - tried to get a good "Group Selfie" and this was all I got. My kiddos aren't in a "Cooperative Picture Taking Phase" right now. Oh well.
I am very grateful for a lot of great moments today. Meltdowns and intense emotions and whininess and opportunities to listen and love and connect. Making it through the day with as much grace as I could muster. I'm grateful for beautiful weather and walking my beloved Yoshi and getting to talk to my favorite two women in the world while on my walk.
A new space to record my gratitude, regularly. Inspired by 100 Happy Days. I've realized that "Happy" is not possible for me all the time and rather than feel guilty about that I've decided to embrace what I CAN do - Gratitude. I can always find things to be grateful for - every day, even in my darkest moments. So join me in a million moments of gratitude. The more the merrier (thankfuller??)!
