As I sat down to think about what I was grateful for I decided to pull up my national day calendar. Today is National Pickle Day as well as National Spicy Guacamole Day. These are basically the two items I lived on through my pregnancy. Sign? Nope.
I'm grateful to be entertaining the conversation of when to start trying for our next child with my husband. I'm grateful for these signs being false today. I'm grateful to know I would be happy either way but I'm extra grateful with more time with just my daughter. I'm grateful for delicious pregnancy food even when I am not pregnant. I'm grateful for my dog and for her being here despite her age and challenges it brings. I'm grateful for doggie diapers and carpet cleaners. And most of all I am grateful for my normal up and down, beautiful life.
What signs are showing up for you today? Are they true or are they just showing you the possibilities to come?
May today bring us clarity on what we want. May we open our hearts to the beautiful, messy life we live and find gratitude waiting. Have a beautiful day!
