A Gift...

I woke up in a bad mood today! Tired and cold and matter how hard we try to prepare for the day ahead (the night before) I always feel behind the eight ball, ya know what I mean? All the kids wake at the same time, wanting milk, bottles, breakfast, cuddle and play time all before 7am and a cup of coffee. They wake-up chatting and happy and want your full attention while I am focused on teeth, vitamins, hair, making lunch, etc...we awoke to several inches of fresh fallen snow and watched as more continued (continues) to fall. It was an early Christmas for the kids - they are beyond excited! So after we got one off to school and I had a small moment to sit and drink coffee, I remembered what a friend told me...and tells me almost daily - "Everyday is a gift!"...and just like that my mood changed...she is SO right...I decided to embrace the "grind", the chatter, the diapers, the meals, the messes and responsibility, the snow and all that comes with each crazy day with 3 kids...because life is a gift, each day on this Earth is a gift, motherhood is a gift and being Bryan's wife is a gift. This is a wonderful, beautiful season and I plan to enjoy it!...Hope you have a great Monday and a great week!

Thanks for reminding me that everyday is a gift--I need to hear that. I feel the exact same way that you do in the mornings--all the demands before my coffee routinely send me over the edge--but you know what? If I didn't have them, boy would I be sad!!!
