This last week I have absolutely loved the hour or so that we get as a family in the evening, more than ever!
We don’t get a lot of time together, with my husband’s long commute, but the time we do have is priceless.
Texting with a friend recently I realized how far we’ve come! Next month will be 15 years married, with 2 beautiful babies in paradise.
In 2013, I was very clear that our relationship was over and now I’m so grateful for our amazing family.
I’m so grateful that I have such a patient and loving partner who would do anything for us.
Last night I offered to put Olivia to bed and he looked sad, as he wanted to put her to bed after not seeing her all day. Every night when he gets home he’s so excited for his 15 minutes with Emma before she goes to bed.
Even if he hadn’t hosed off the cloth diapers, loaded the dishwasher and wiped off the counters. I am so grateful.
I have had a very blessed life. There have been circumstances and reasons, even arguably valid ones, for why I have complained, but I have an opportunity to find joy in every moment. To let go of judgment and find opportunity in challenges.
I believe we can all find joy and love in our hearts regardless of our circumstances. I could spend time enrolling you in how life is challenging working full time and doing most of our family responsibilities and stuff with the girls, while working full time, on my own.
Finding ease in my life is not always easy, and I know I have a choice. Feeling sorry for myself and finding the negative will only bring more of the same. We have enough hatred already and I have big plans to transform this planet into a place worthy of all of our children.
I can create joy through my actions, my thoughts and my words. I can create a better world one step at a time.
