It has been a little while since I have stopped to really think about all that I am grateful for. Our days have been busier, with me directing a play and working more shifts at the library. Despite the busyness, I believe it is important to try to remain present in my moments. Sometimes I forget to do this, but is still helpful to think back over my day and recall the day’s blessings.
Today I am thankful for:
~Simon giving me an extra half hour of sleep.
~Having him curl up on my lap to read stories together after breakfast.
~His delightful imagination and the detailed scenarios he makes up when he plays. (Such as serving me the play food meal shown above.)
~Having the day off, so I got to wear jeans.
~The sun shining, even if it was only for a small part of the day.
~That the rain never came down hard enough to bother us when we were out walking.
~Listening to good music in the car and singing along.
~A visit to our favorite little toy store where Simon played happily; and I bought him his very first pair of scissors.
~A deep tissue treatment at the chiropractor.
~A few precious moments of complete quiet in the afternoon.
~Seeing my husband and son all snuggled up together on the couch.
~My favorite comfy sweatshirt.
As for tonight, I have yet another new book to start reading; and my bed is calling my name.
Hope you all are feeling glad, here in the middle of the week.
