With Thanksgiving upon us, it’s hard not to be grateful for the little loves in our lives. Just when you think you’re at your breaking point as a parent, remember that perspective is everything.
- When my daughter is moving like a snail in the morning and I’ve asked her 16 times (literally) to put her shoes on…I’m thankful that she’s healthy and off for a day of learning.
- When my son got really dirty playing in the mud and now the laundry is piled sky high on the couch…I remember that he had such joy on his face while doing it.
- When my husband is running late and rushing to get the baby dressed for daycare…She reaches her arms out for a hug from mama, and what’s one more minute?
- When it’s past bedtime and they’re begging for a few extra minutes…I remember they’re not yet teens and they still actually want to spend time with us, so we soak it up.
Happy Thanksgiving. There’s always many blessings to be grateful for, as long as you look.
