I’m laying in bed this morning, feeling my son kick, working from my phone while everyone else is still asleep. And the most overwhelming feeling of gratefulness crept over me. 😭🙌🏻
There were days not long ago I wanted everything I have now. I think sometimes we get so swept up in the busy day to day activities that we forget to stop, to take a breath, and take it all in.
I never dreamt sitting in the back of that smoky, desolate strip club changing room that someday I would be a full time 4.0 nursing student, a mom of two, a wife, and a business owner.
I wanted it, sure. But I didn’t believe it could ever happen. 😔
And somedays I forget to appreciate everything my life has turned into.
Soon my ma, and my sister will be back home with us. Things will be complete. My little family is happy, and full of so so much love. We have our issues like any other family, but at the end of the day, I wouldn’t change not one of them. 💙
So today, take a step back. Put the phone down, and breathe it all in. Play with your kids. Kiss your spouse. Call your mother, your sister, your brother. I want you to burn this moment, these precious fleeting seconds into your brain. So that when you lay on your deathbed, you have something to leave behind.
Happy Thursday, friends 😘 #grateful #gratitude #happy #family #son #daughter #latenightwork #babynumber2 #momlife #peace #blessed
