Like making Michael pancakes with applesauce and watching him devour them and when he finally looks up and sees me watching him he gives me the biggest, mouth fulliest grin :) and it melts my heart.
I'm grateful that I am able to stay home and take care of my baby [and my bigger baby ;)]
And I am grateful that I am well. That I felt good enough this morning at 6:30 am when Michael tells me he's ready to get out of bed, to scoop him up and get on the floor and play with him.
I'm grateful for the simplicity of life right now, even though sometimes, it doesn't feel so simple. I love that, sometimes, and only sometimes, I get glimpses of the big picture and I can remember that being a little late, or staying up a little longer won't matter..even tomorrow.
I want to be better at remembering who is important and what is important.
I need to make time for the things that matter and cut time from the things that are wasteful.
It's the small things that make a big difference sometimes...
like seeing two babies on an ultrasound screen, right?
One and two are not that far apart? right?
