Being thankful for the simple things
--by Dreamer, posted Feb 8, 2007
I have a very simple story this time. I just decided to take a break from my hectic life and be present/fully engaged with my infant son and husband. Usually, I am multi-tasking work/mommyhood/wife/household stuff. And I lost site of my priorities, my family.
Today, I really stopped and absorbed myself as my 9 month old tried sitting in a crawling position or cried about something or just wanted to sleep (without mommy running off for a work engagement or thinking about that next thing that had to be done). And I made amends with my husband for being crabby and losing my temper. And just tried to be grateful for a change. Sometimes I find I forget to be kind to my own family. Isn't this ironic, on a site devoted to kindness to others.
