I'm Happy


This may sound really cheesy, but I woke up this morning feeling really blessed. Life isn't perfect, but it's pretty close! My house is always a mess these days. My 22 month old is constantly whining and clinging to me now that I'm teaching ESL again. She's also been keeping me up late and waking me up insanely early because she is cutting her molars. I'm having a hard time with lesson planning, researching, article writing, keeping the toddler happy, making sure all the household chores are taken care of, rushing home to cook supper, do dishes, do laundry and everything else.

Somehow though, I know everything will be okay. We've got a healthy, happy, kooky little girl whom no one believes was a preemie. She makes me laugh with all the funny things she comes up with.

She tries to use chopsticks to eat.

She "teaches" us to nod our head "yes" and then claps her hands emphatically and laughs.

At our friends' wedding last night, she was a dancing machine!

I'm in love with my little monkey. Oh, and with my husband too (of course)!

Though life sometimes gets a bit overwhelming, I'm fortunate and I'm happy.

it is important to sit back and reflect on all the wonderful blessings we have in our lives. I will try to take a note from your page and look at the positives rather than focus on what I can't control (my mess and my lack of time etc!!! )

Check out the hot mama in that picture!

It is so easy to get wrapped up in all of life's todo lists, but stopping to really think about the good is so important.

Hugs to you! ok, gotta go dig out from under my own to do list ;-)

Christine:
I need to do it more often too. I *know* how blessed I am. I just have to remind myself some days! LOL!

Me:
Oh, I *try* to keep positive and usually I'm good at it :) Occasionally I go through fits of madness though! LOL! Ummm...Like when I clean until the house is spotless and moments later the toddler destroys everything! Or when I'm completely exhausted from work, toddler, laundry, supper...and then have to stay up late to wash dishes. I envy my friends and family who have nannies and housekeepers. *sigh*

Canine:
Thank you, thank you. You are so right too. Always good to take time to be thankful. Miss you guys! BTW, can you send me an e-mail with a list of items you'd like again? I lost the original list and wanted to send your care package now that it's no longer hot and your Coffee Crisps won't melt! LOL!
