I can't believe it's been almost a week since I posted here! Time is flying. Between the fun and the busy-ness and the busy-ness and fun I am reminded again of the feeling that I'm just barely clinging to some precipice by my fingernails.
Today I am very grateful for a rainy, chilly, relaxed morning and time for me to catch up on some things while the kids relax and watch their favorite YouTube videos (Minecraft for Marisol, and video games for Gerry).
I am grateful always for the opportunity to grow through parenting. I am grateful for my intense child who always pushes me far beyond my comfort zone and who is like my own personal in-home psychologist.
I am grateful for perspective that comes from being a parent for years and to know that everything really is a phase and that the only constant is change.
I am grateful for fall and Halloween and building excitement and a family theme for costumes.
I am grateful for our furry family members and the love they add to our lives.
I am grateful for amazing conversations with my 8 year old and belly laughs with my 5 year old.
For all of this and so much more I am incredibly grateful.
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??)!
