Upliftment. Gratitude. Thankfulness. Grace. Glorious Contentment. Whatever you call it - there is no harm in indulging in some every day.
So, today I am grateful for my two boys. I am completely astounded (I feel like I get hit by a bus) when I look at Malakai and realise he's mine... *smile* He is just so absolutely gorgeous, so clever, so gentle and funny. Little Harlan is starting to grow on me too - his little smile, given when I least expect it, really lights up my day. I'm getting to understand his little personality, so different from Malakai's (of course!) and I'm grateful that today that I was able to understand him well enough to avoid a meltdown of proportions that only Harlan is able to achieve :)
I am grateful for a wonderful husband, who loves me and who thinks of me. Yes, I really love that he thinks of me, considers my feelings, considers my needs, and then tries to meet them. He makes me feel very special and I am so lucky to have him as my husband.
I am so grateful for my husband's love of his children - his bond with Malakai is just beyond words - he absolutely adores his firstborn. He also gives Harlan the kisses and hugs that I sometimes forget in the day-to-day survival of a small baby with colic. I am grateful for that perfection - what I am unable to do, my husband so naturally picks up and runs with. A beautiful dance we have - together.
I am grateful for so many things - nik naks for breakfast, Malakai's first picture, Harlan's gurgly noises, Darryl's love, my beautiful patio to which I often escape, my blogs that inspire me every day, a mother and sister who I can turn to at anytime for words of encouragement and a giggle every now and again, wonderful friends who brighten my days and lighten my load... too many things to mention!
