Each day, laptop and children permitting, I’ll share a prompt that’s been on my mind, and a few of my thoughts.
You are welcome to share your own perspective in the comments, or just journal it out!
What are some things I’m grateful for about this stage and time in my life?
Now that we’ve reflected on the past, what are you grateful for about right now, today?
I’m grateful for the chance to be a mom.
The other day I told my daughter she and her brother and her dad were my greatest treasures.
“What does that mean mom?”
“It means that I love you, and I treat you kindly because you’re special to me.”
“Except for when you’re mean to me and you make mistakes?”
“Yes, sometimes I yell and make mistakes.”
“But you still love me, even when you’re mad, huh, Mom?”
“Yep. I love you no matter what.”
*Self-satisfied head nod.
I’m also grateful for the age our kids are – right at that sweet spot where they sleep for us (for the most part), and still love to snuggle (for the most part).
And, I’m grateful for the 3-day weekend!
Any fun plans?
