” Count your rainbows and not your thunderstorms” – author unknown
A phrase that is sticking with me for the duration of well forever. Today I decided to count my rainbows and what a wonderful day is was! Starting with a pajama dance party while listening to shake it off by Taylor Swift! I truly do not believe it is possible to be in a bad mood and listen to that song! So we danced and laughed as we made pancakes!
Then as the kids began to fuss a little I said “Let’s go outside!” Mini me has been cooped up for over a week since her surgery and it was time for some fresh air! Buddy and mini me had so much fun on the swing set! I hope to keep those smiles etched in my brain forever. But just in case Alzheimer’s hits at some point, there are plenty of photographs to remember the occasion!
Joy! We just had pure sweet and simple joy! I was able to play with my children. To hell with the household chores! A mountain of laundry who cares! The best part was no phone calls! Sad to say but work would have called or texted me a that point and ruined my mood! See there is a rainbow in this situation somewhere!
“Look Momma!” mini me says as she hands me some picked flowers, these are for you! I think my heart melted. They were the most pitiful looking things you had ever seen and were probably some form of weed as my lawn is not exactly a well manicure one, but they were from her and I loved them!
Eventually 7yo came out and joined in on the fun! She was too cool at first but then she joined in and how cute were they all on the swing together! It has been a long time since I have laughed like that and allowed myself to just relax.
While it’s hard not to worry about the future, this moment. It’s the only one we have! My new year’s resolution was to enjoy simplicity and that’s what I am going to do! No more thunderstorm’s in this girls forecast only rainbows! Bright glowing ones that hopefully have a pot of gold at the end!
