Is there a mom out there that has everything together? If so, I’d really like to meet her!
If you read my post the other day, we got the ceiling fixed yesterday. Which of course means there is dry wall all over my floor. The playroom is currently destroyed. The laundry is piling up. The dog is puking all over the floor. And there is a handyman banging on the outside of my house. In other words, its a mess. But at the same time there is a lot to be grateful for.
As some people know, my husband suffers from epilepsy. Thankfully, his seizures are under control and they rarely happen these days. However, when stress piles up or lack of sleep, he can have one of his auras. This signals to me that he must go to bed immediately and then he usually can avoid having a seizure. He had one yesterday.
It’s so easy to focus on the bad. But there is so much to be grateful for and counting my blessings should help put that in perspective. I have three healthy, happy, and incredibly energetic children. At least a messy playroom shows that they are playing with the toys I spent money on and they are also wearing the many clothes I spent way too much on. I’m grateful that I have an awesome dog, even though he pukes all over my floor way too often! I’m grateful that we have the ability to get our ceiling fixed and the wood rot on the outside of the house. Most of all, I’m grateful that my husband just requires sleep, when there are many others with his condition that would require much more.
In days, like this, it is very hard to focus on the blessings, but above all else I’m blessed to live this crazy, insane life!
