Each day it is healthy to reflect on what was great with the day, so as not to dwell on what was wrong. Listen to me, I sound like a doctor! Well, I just have to say that although I am NOT a doctor, I have learned from my own personal experience that if I don't end my day with a positive note the next day tends to start out how I left the previous day.
Anyway....today was a stressful day with the near 17 month old teething AGAIN! And with my overwhelming anxiety or sadness, or whatever it is, that my oldest is turning 4 this Saturday. So I was reflecting this evening and remembered one of my greatest joys!
A few months ago, we decided that I would be a stay at home Mom. Well, over the months the kids have gotten used to it of course fallen into a new routine that has made me beam from ear to ear. As soon as they hear the door crack open in the evening, they both stop what they are doing and go running for the door to greet their Daddy! It is so amazing how joyous they are to see him! Well, it happened again today and it was even better!
Why? Well, I recalled that this past weekend my husband was talking with a guy friend about the things he likes about me being a stay at home Mom. And well, this came up. He expressed how awesome it feels for the kids to do this. And well....that just made me feel even more joy!
What joy did you find today?
