Yesterday was a rough day for me. Nothing seemed to be going right from rude people at the grocery store to my family getting sick. There is nothing I hate more than hearing my son cough and cry.
Following a day like yesterday, I decided I needed to cheer myself up and try to look on the bright side to get over this hump. When times get tough, it is important to remember that there are still so many good things going on in your life.
My Happys – What Makes Me Happy Today
If I could take the sickness away from my family, I would do it in a heartbeat but since that isn’t an option, I am so happy that I am well and can focus on my full attention on helping them feel better. I’m sure that in the next day or two I will catch whatever they have but that won’t stop me from doing everything I can now to make sure they are cared for.
My husband has afforded a life for our family that allows me to stay at home every day with our son. Although we had discussed it before we got married, by the time our son was born, I had a well established career making close to six figures. Although I do still work part-time on occasion, losing that income definitely took a hit on our financial situation. It is an incredible gift I have been given to get to be a stay at home mom and I hope I convey that appreciation to my husband.
What can I say? He is my life, my heart, my moon and my stars. Seeing him grow and learn new things each day brings me such joy. When I look back at pictures from a year ago, it breaks my heart a little bit to see how much he has changed into such a little man but I am also so excited to see what the future has in store for him. This little person has only been around for 14 months but now I cannot imagine my life without him.
I’ve tried blogging on and off over the last decade but it was never something I was able to stick with. After becoming a stay at home mom a little over a year ago, however, I needed a hobby outside of child rearing. I launched Family-Favorites.com on November 1st and have been consistently posting ever since. Sure, keeping the blog fresh has resulted in several late nights and early mornings but, it is totally worth it to have an outlet for my interests.
