I got a kiss from my husband and exchanged "I Love You"s. While this always happens at some point in the morning he is usually still asleep when I get up. Sleeping in has an added benefit I guess.
I reached over for my phone to check on what special "holidays" today holds and found a text from my brother drinking out of his "I love my sister" mug. What a beautiful, loving message this morning! I have a great brother, who despite us both being adults, I still look up to and adore.
The little sweetheart in my belly is bouncing around this morning too. What a wonderful feeling to feel so much love for someone I have not met yet. I am so blessed to have not only this child but my older daughter as well.
My older daughter is catching on to the phrase, "I love you so much!" It just fills my heart as she gives huge hugs and wants to say it right to my face, eyeball to eyeball. There is no shortage of ways this kid makes my heart swell each day.
Today I get to spend time out in nature with my daughter and a wonderful girlfriend I haven't seen nearly enough lately. My wonder-lust already has me excited about being out in the beautiful Spring atmosphere with two ladies I love.
And to top it off I get to go out with another set of girlfriends tonight to celebrate the birthday of one of my amazing girlfriends. She had been such a blessing to my life as our daughters are close in age. She has such a big heart and I am so excited to celebrate with her!
I'm grateful for such a beautiful start to the day. I'm grateful for the messages of love from the people I love most. I'm grateful to know how truly blessed I am each day. I'm grateful for the amazing family and friends that bless my life. I'm grateful to get outside and celebrate this new season. I'm grateful for girlfriends and the amazing, powerful friendships they provide. I'm grateful for my daughters and how my heart has swelled in ways I could not even imagine before. I'm grateful to have an amazing husband and to get to wake next to him each day. I'm grateful for a big brother that has taught me so much and still takes the time to think of me as he heads off to work in the morning. I'm grateful to wake to all this love and to know that it is with me always.
What helps you feel loved? How much time do you get to spend with the people who mean the most to you?
May today remind us to reach out and tell the ones we love we are thinking of them. May we accept and bask in the love given to us from the ones we love. Have a beautiful day!
