I manage to piece each day together but they all seem to run into each other, an endless stream of craziness.
I am trying to find a balance, a sense of peace but somehow it hasn't quite happened yet.
These are the days that I am grateful the little ladies sleep in till 9:00.
Life is great though, don't get me wrong.
I am healthy, my family is wonderful and within the chaos we still seem to find our happiness.
I am so blessed for such amazing friends and all the inspirational people that share their beauty and wisdom with me.
I have been simply enjoying life as it comes and enjoying my family and friends in all their glory.
I think I have found my secrets to a blissful content life.
A sliver of that secret is living in the moment, taking it as it comes.
Today was full of those lessons.
From the 2 litres of milk that landed on the kitchen floor, to the pasta plate that slid into the utensil drawer....every moment was an opportunity to reflect on what really is important and choose my reactions based on such.
It really doesn't matter, it stinks to clean up but no one was hurt and, well, it was kind of funny.
Believing that kids will be kids and that as a parent I should allow them the right to be just that....kids, I have taken a step back lately to just watch them grow.
Today E thought it was a fun idea to remove her clothes and dance in the rain and have a mud bath.
I actually envied her carefree sense of fun.
She was enjoying herself to no end and I just sat back with camera in hand and let it be.
Have I gotten to old?
Or is it that I have just forgotten how?
I hope next time I will be sitting in there with her....even for just a moment.
