The past week has been about 80% shit. Some stuff happened on the weekend, work is busy, and Sam’s truck broke down. Not really that bad — but it has been a stressful and emotional week.
My reaction to this week has been to be a complete bitch to all the people I love. I’ve been sullen, selfish, and not a very likable wife and mom. Yesterday, I decided to try to focus on the positive things in my life. The little things I love that make the day wonderful; there is almost always something sunny on a cloudy day.
So here we are, the tiny wonderful things that occurred on a Wednesday:
coffee in a Shakespeare mug
Office art created by Hope
Having lunch with Sam. I told him I wanted to take a picture for “the blog” and this is his more than thrilled expression.
My sweet girl doing her homework
Silly cereal face
Talking to duckie
Sweet Potato Fries!!!
Reading Jane Eyre in the baby room while rocking Atticus to sleep
That one, semi-clean space on Hope’s floor
There we are, all the happy little moments in one place. All in all yesterday was a good day and I’m sure those other horrid days wouldn’t have been quite so bad if I had thought about all my blessings.
