Yesterday was one of those days that I had imagined and hoped for when I was pregnant. There are many days that aren't anything like what I imagined- the days of not sleeping, consistent whining, sickness, headaches, boredom. BUT yesterday was a redemption day and I want to remember every part. It started with this.
Then we planted some flowers and went on a walk where we were fascinated with our shadow.
All of this and it was only 10:30am. Then, per her request, we went swimming at the indoor pool. The rest of the day continued on with loads of hugs, kisses, building blocks, little to no whining, and plenty of whispered "thank yous" to a God that gives these perfect moments, and carries me through the rough ones.
Today, whatever you are, may my heart be steady, focused, and grateful.
