One grateful thought a day…

I need to get back to blogging.  I miss the writing and documenting time.  My dear friend over at Oh Smudge has posted “Happiness is…” posts each Saturday in the past, and it’s something I want to try.  I’ve been wallowing in a combination of busy momma/not enough me time/self-pity junk lately, and it’s time to snap out of it and appreciate what is.  It’s a wonderful life, really.  But life with little ones (and a teen and tween and husband) can be wonderfully hard at times too.  The hustle and bustle of keeping a home running, with everything in it’s place and hungry bellies fed and tired minds rested is a big job!  Say nothing of laundry, cleaning, appointments, etc.

This photo isn’t high quality, but it was the snapshot that spurred me to start documenting a grateful thought each day.   On this day, Monday, I finally gave in and rested with my little one because sometimes that is simply what he seems to crave.  Just being CLOSE.  I had been hustling and bustling and didn’t feel like I had time to lose this day.  But as soon as I got settled in, I knew it was the best thing for both of us, and my whole household.  It calmed and soothed my mind and his too.  And I was grateful.IMG_8178-2

My daily grateful thoughts this week:

…baby snuggles/nap that reset both of our moods.

…sugar levels well within perfect range at my 2 month postpartum doctor visit!

….dinner prep done before noon.

…5,000 steps in before noon.


…Saturday errands that my husband runs for our household.
