It's so easy to get lost in the daily grind especially with young children. I am trying to be patient with myself, give myself time to adjust to the newest addition to our family. I think I was expecting to be back to 'normal' by now. I hadn't taken into account that we would need to find a new normal with our newest family member.
I have a gorgeous diary that I write in everyday with a concise list of things I am grateful for that day. It's a daily diary because if I miss a day I go back and fill it in either with what I remember from that day or other simple pleasures like clean water to drink or a hot shower.
Sometimes it is the simplest things that remind me to be grateful. Today as I sat feeding our 5 week old wee man and watching the children running around outside I was overcome with a wave of gratitude for this:
It also made me think about how much I love spring and the little things that remind me of warmer weather coming and all the fun things that we can do in the warmth! I hope that as our family adjusts to a new person and find our new normal we can make the most of the warm weather! Although right now it's sunny and hailing!! Crazy April weather!
