Today I am remembering to be thankful. I suppose I should remember always, but everyday stressors lead us to forgetting. Sitting here awake on a Saturday morning at 5am should make me mad. I mean I need sleep right? Instead I am thankful.
The silence of the house while I sip my coffee is giving me a chance to do something that I have not done in months. BREATHE! It’s giving me a chance to relax and breathe. Feeling thankful for this opportunity I am now ready to handle the days events of a birthday party and some family pictures with the in-laws. That’s right we are going to get a bunch of kids together and try to get their pictures taken! Wish is Luck because we will certainly be needing it!
The past few months have just been nonstop going. Whether at work, or home. Between Birthday parties, Ballet and School events, we have really only come home to sleep. It’s just been completely exhausting. Once you add a 5yo who refuses to sleep in her bed due to an irrational fear of the dark which can only be cured by sleeping in mommy’s bed. Well, you get the point. I’m not sleeping.
I have been praying and begging for this moment for awhile, not getting it leading me to believe that I would need to be committed if I didn’t just get a moment to relax and its here. God knows what we need and when we need it.
Oh wait! Time is up! 6yo is awake and I must go now. Moment of silence you were awesome! Let’s do this again sometime because I have surely missed you!
