I have never blogged before, but my friends all say that is fun. Over the last few days, I have been reading their posts and I thought I'd try it too. DH says that it will just add another thing to do in my day (like I don't have enought to do already) and perhaps he's right. We will have to reevaluate later.
I chose this name for my blog since about two years ago I had an epiphany. My then 5-year-old daughter was complaining about cleaning up her room. I told her that she should be grateful she has so many toys to clean up. Kids in other countries that have only one toy sure have a shorter clean-up time. This made me realize that all the stresses in my life come from blessings. If I didn't have so much good food to eat, I wouldn't have so many dishes to wash. If I didn't have my beautiful home that keeps me warm and safe and dry, then I wouldn't have one that needed vacuuming, dusting, and baseboards cleaned. If I didn't have a wonderful family and DH, then I wouldn't have anyone to drive me crazy. etc....... From that point on, when times are tough and stressful I sing my mantra (and my kids join in) "I have a good life. I have a good life."
Today is a hard day since it is the third day in a row that Little Dan (my 3 month old) has been a little sick and thinks that I have to hold him all day long! How can anything else get done?
