It’s been a tough week in the Bee Hive – a week full of sickness, sleep deprivation, sassiness, procrastination, and frustration. But as I was just about to write a post about my tough times, I came across a lovely linkup Attitude of Gratitude – which has inspired me to shift my mindframe, and to focus on the fantastic things I am so blessed to have in my life.
I’m grateful for Mr. Bee, whose patience, playfulness, and positivity balance our little family when I’m having a rough day and need a time out.
I’m grateful for my group of besties, who have seen me through my awkward years, who have shared in weddings, births, funerals, loves and losses. They are my rocks.
I’m grateful for the beautiful and diverse group of ladies who make up my mommy group. Who have supported me from the beginning of this wild and crazy journey through motherhood, and who through our 4+ years together, have become so much more to me than a mommy support group. They have kept me sane, kept me laughing, and kept me grounded.
I’m grateful for my parents, who may not be the ones who made me, but who are the ones who made me who I am today. They inspire me, humour me, support me, and love me unconditionally, and I am truly thankful.
I am grateful for my beautiful babies, who light up my life, who I could not live without, who have taught me more than anyone about love, life and laughter.
I have so much to be thankful for, and compared to this small list of a million things I love about my life, my tough week pales in comparison.
