Lately, I've just had this feeling of contentment wash over me every so often. I can't really describe it-just a feeling that everything is as it should be (knock on wood...I DO NOT want to jinx anything). The strongest such moment was the other day, one day before Thanksgiving. I was sitting on the couch, sipping some coffee. The morning news was on in the background. Alexandra was on the carpet in front of me toddling around. She was playing, doing her thing. And I was taking such joy in watching her, and in doing my thing...sipping my coffee, listening to the news in the background, listening to Alex jabber. It doesn't sound like anything special, but it was a spectacular moment. I don't know why. But I just felt so peaceful and satisfied.
And so thankful. For my husband and my baby. I don't know why I have been so blessed, but I hope that I can be the best mother and wife to them. And I hope to savor more moments, rather than get caught up in the holiday/life hub-bub. Because, really, despite all the daily annoyances, trials and tribulations, I have so much to be thankful for. And my goal is to never take that for granted.
Happy holiday season <3
