3 Little Boys

Today I'm feeling lucky ... really, really lucky. 

I'm so lucky to be a mom who has the opportunity to raise 3 little guys that are more wonderful than words can say. I'm lucky to be sharing this exact stage of their lives with them right now. It's such a fantastic time for them. I'm lucky to be able to stay at home when I need to and work when I need to. I'm lucky that I get a little me time every week. I'm lucky to have had the chance to go to a ballet class this morning (albeit at the risk of feeling completely out of shape and just a bit soft) and to have met my sister for oatmeal with cranberries and granola after that. The weather is perfect and there's that wonderful smell in the air. 

I've not always felt great about where I am as a mom. I'm sure we've all been there. There've been plenty of moments when my body and mind have ached for rest, solace, inspiration, normalcy. But as soon as things start to look up, and they always do so quickly (what is the use in worry at all, really?), I realize what a beautiful thing having a family and being a mama is. What indescribable creatures they are, the blessings they pour on me everyday, the laughter within my heart and soul that matches none I've ever experienced. And I try to take many moments in everyday life to breath, to sit still and just watch them, to enjoy them. Because it's all so fleeting and time has swept by us in such a rush since they were born. And they're so perfect.right.now. I'm so thankful for it all.
