Anyone who has been reading is certainly aware of the craziness of my life, and those of you with children, well, you probably relate on a more personal note. Along with the craziness and my frustrations at times, I still look for the silver lining. And I hope as I keep making my way down this path of motherhood I continue to learn to soak up and live each moment. I want to laugh at the fun times, cry with the sad times, sigh at the endearing times, and even find the “silver lining” in those tough times. I want to breathe in life’s every moment, growing, learning, and loving each breath.
I want to see the growth and the fun in spilt milk at a wonder family dinner, or popcorn all over the floor from a fun family movie night, or blankets all over the living room from a tent built in laughter. I want to pay attention to the blessings of sticky doorknobs from sticky little hands, and muddy toes prints on my kitchen floor from muddy little feet. I want to laugh when my sock foot steps in water from a munchkin project gone awry.
These are all truly blessings. They are kid prints that I am fortunate to have around my house. They are what make my house full of life.
So yes, I do write of my frustrations. But no use crying over spilt milk, one the one who spilt it has the most adorable eyes in the world. Although I have to admit, a lot of times I cry first and laugh later. Sometimes it takes longer than others to catch the glimmer of that silver lining. But it is always there if I take the moment to look.
