Yesterday was a day I’d like to never repeat. thankyouverymuch universe.
But as I was trying to fall asleep I thougth about how, even on grumpy days, it’s nice to bring something postive to the fore before you end the day. So while I have had zero time to read this week, I can always fit in a bit of time to be thankful for what I’ve had and what I continue to have.
So today’s post is about being thankful, even in the face of chaos.
I’ve got a lifetime’s worth of memories with my husband and now with our children. Each day, even on crazy days, more get added. I remember right after I had our second child, my dude had some leave time and we’d all wake up in the morning and I’d have a cup of tea, prepared by my lovely husband, while my oldest ate his breakfast and I nursed the baby. I’d sit in the glider and rock slowly, looking over my house of men with the weight of a tiny fist resting on my chest as the baby nursed.
I look at them now and they’re far past the point where they fit in the crook of my arm and happily snuggled into me all day long. But I can still feel the whisper of that tiny fist, right above my heart.
