Because my allergies have been horrible today. Because I promise you the woman at the front desk really has it out for me. Because some how this afternoon I really hurt my lower back. Because of the utter embarrassment of V throwing an ugly fit in public because she can’t show Tina (her speech therapist) the stack of pads she pulled out of my purse. [Keeping it real.] Because I just feel crummy. And I cried, because I feel crummy.
Therefore I choose to celebrate in the things that bring joy:
x Celebrating with the huzband when a friend says yes to running the NYC marathon for Team World Vision
o Letting V ride in the car with the window down
x Gram & Doodad came to sleepover in our new house for the first time
o The extreme excitement in little V’s voice when she saw Doodad’s car pull in the driveway
x The overwhelming happiness in little V’s face when she opened the door and saw that Doodad brought Gus the dog along
0 Getting to talk via ‘face time’ with family in Oklahoma, especially my beautiful twin nieces & irresistible nephew
x Getting to sit and chat with my mom
0 Having a family that loves me
x Learning a friend will be induced on Sunday (yah for babies!)
0 Kleenex that is oh so soft on the nose
Sometimes, it’s really about how we choose to view things!
