This time alone and my ultimate decision to take the weekend away, has led me to one conclusion: my life is wonderful. I am lucky beyond lucky. I have an amazing husband, fabulous kids, a great family, wonderful friends, a great job, and so much more.
Today, I'm grateful that I can take a weekend away with friends for the first time in 7 years (I think). I'm grateful that my children are alive and able to hug me and goof around. I'm mean look at those faces.
I'm so lucky to have these precious children call me mommy.
I'm grateful for so many more things and this morning, I can see it all. But mostly, at this moment, I'm grateful for these smiles.
