I sat down to write a mopey woe-is-me post. I sat down and I told Jerry I was going to do it. That I wanted to vent. He said, don’t do it baby, you won’t feel better. I said, yes I will. I WILL. But then I clicked over to twitter and started reading. I came across a post that really put me in my place and I decided that though it’s valid for me to have a hard day, I don’t want to dwell on it anymore than you want to read about it. Instead, I am going to talk about the things that I love about right now.
Most nights we have dinner together and we try to pray and thank God for our food. And now if we start eating without praying, Oscar will reach out and grab our hands and say AAAA-men, until we pray. I absolutely LOVE that he does that. It makes me feel awesome that not only are we making an impact on him, but he is already holding us accountable for things that we aren’t always that good at, even with good intentions.
I love that we are safe and healthy and provided for. It can be so easy to take for granted but so many people consider these things a luxury. I should be one of them.
I love my community. I have amazing friends online and off and they are always there for me even when I am in hiding. They know how to draw me out of my shell and keep me real and humble.
I love that my husband bakes his own bread. My grandfather was a baker and I have always said that Jerry reminds me of him. This just adds to that already warm-heart feeling. And the bread is delicious!
I love that I have this blog. I know that I can complain if and when I need to, but I also love that it’s so organic. It’s not a resource site for all things parenting, yet my experiences are real and present. It’s not a dedicated local blog, but I love bragging on my city. It’s not a “deals” website but if I find something good, I want to share it. It’s just me. Some days I am up, and some days I am down, but I am here. And I am thankful.
What do you love about right now?
