I had it all planned out.
I was going to write a post on gratitude, and possibly list the things I was grateful for, just because.
But then my morning exploded into cacophony of tears and yelling and both of my children taking turns screaming and/or launching toys across the room just to see if I was paying attention.
So, maybe this won’t have quite the lovey, sappy “I’m so thankful for life and pretty trees and rainbows” feel to it.
At this point I’m just grateful that I didn’t lose my own temper and that I remained in control through it all. Yes, there may have been some irritated sighs and possibly an inner eye roll or two, but at least I didn’t collapse into a puddle of tears when I saw that Adele had dumped the entire contents of my 2/3 full coffee cup onto the kitchen floor while I was upstairs dealing with her brother, who was pitching a fit because I wouldn’t let him watch TV.
(I’m so exhausted you guys.)
Here, look at some pictures that make me smile.
