He often offers me perspective and opens my eyes.
Last night I was sitting with out newest little person, Baby Vick, at the end of a long day. He was snuggling into me for a cuddle. I was taking the time to enjoy the moment and relishing it. We were bonding my boy and I. He may not know it, but we were. Mr Vick came over and kissed Baby Vick and looked at me and remarked how our baby is such a peaceful soul and that we are so blessed. That there has not been one hiccup in our journey into and throughout parenthood to date. We have 2 healthy and happy boys. They’re excellent little people. We couldn’t ask for anything more. We have been incredibly blessed.
I couldn’t argue with that. It’s all true.
He kissed me on the forehead in appreciation. In these moments I know exactly why I chose him.
I am thankful for his thankfulness and for reminding me of how good things are. Thankful for some perspective. Thankful for Baby Vick sleeping through for the first time last night ever. That probably has a whole lot to do with this reflection and thankfulness. I have a brain today. I might feel strangely normal for a few hours today.
I am thankful for what I have. 3 boys who enrich my life. Love me. Make my world whole and filled with colour.
I wanted to share today because perhaps you have something to be thankful for too. A warm and fuzzy story?
I’m linking up with Francesca Writes Here today on her Thankful Thursday Linky Party!
