When the stars don't align...the next best thing
Soooo, here I am again, faced with a choice. Will I wallow in sorrow? Will I allow my circumstances to dictate my happiness? As easy as it would be to do so, I am going to try my best to not let that happen. I will try to focus on all the good and not get caught up in grumbling. I will try not to be envious of other mom's or different family circumstances. I've mentioned in a past post, but I will reiterate, for my own sake, we have some great things going on. We have a gorgeous home that Jeff has put so much effort into making lovely for us. We live in a wonderful neighborhood with good neighbors and I know our kids are safe here. We both have stable jobs with paychecks we can count on. If I have to work, I admit that the benefits I receive through my company are pretty much unmatched. We are healthy. We have healthy and happy kiddos. Jeff has summers off so he gets to spend good quality time with both kids. And since we have to leave our daughter with someone each day, we are so thankful for the woman we found! Cheryl and her family seem to really love Olivia and Olivia seems to enjoy being with them. What a blessing! Until something can change for the "better" I will remind myself that this is pretty darn good. And I will do my best to soak up each precious minute I have with not only my little baby, but my whole family.
