It is mornings like this, waking at 5:30 am after a long wakeful night, that I remind myself to just take time to cherish the moment. There will come a day when she sleeps through the night. There will come a time that she does not need to wake me to go use the potty. There will be a time when she won't need me so much at all.
Today I am grateful to remember to cherish this moment. I'm grateful for the baby babbles and squeals next to me as she chats with her toys. I'm grateful that she lights up when I walk into the room because I feel the same about her. I'm grateful to have the child I always dreamed of having. I'm grateful to know that I have the strength to get through the lack of sleep and still be a good parent. I'm grateful for the power love gives me. I'm grateful that my baby prefers to poop in the potty over her diaper and I'm grateful she communicates to let me know. I'm so grateful for all the amazing changes and growth I get to witness in my daughter each day. She is my little miracle and I'm so grateful and blessed.
What brings you gratitude in this moment? What changes are you witnessing in your own life?
May today bless us with seeing all the beauty around us. May we cherish all moments, even the challenging ones, that make us who we will be tomorrow. Have a beautiful day!
