Once upon a time I was the only person who read my blog and I attempted a weekly link up. Believe it or not, this did not go well.
Today I decided to dust it off and bring it out of hiding because I need it.
Because sometimes I get caught up in wishing for things like sleep, or a quiet car ride or a house decorated professionally rather than by marker-ed walls, and forget to appreciate all of the little things in my life.
This morning, as we attempted to burn off some two and three year-old energy at the park, I caught myself focusing more on the glowing white shade of my skin than the toddler on my hip and realized I needed to change my attitude. Life it too short to worry about the blinding reflection coming off my legs.
I put on my sunglasses to fend off the glare and squeezed my little guy to remind myself how lucky I am to still have someone on my hip, someone whose problems I can solve with an extra snuggle and a kiss and someone who still thinks I do everything right (as long as I’m armed with a sippy cup and a snack).
So today, I’m thankful for still having someone small enough to carry.
What Small Thing are you thankful for today? Take a few seconds from your day to step back and think about it and leave a comment letting me know what it is.
P.S. If you read often but never comment I would love to hear from you!
