Good morning! Happy Tuesday, and Happy Spring to you! It still isn’t “Spring” in New England. Apparently we forgot the memo. Another nor’easter is in our future tomorrow into Thursday and of course I am not looking forward to that. Prayers for rain instead of snow. What about you? Is it feeling like spring where you are?
Okay, let’s get into some real talk for a minute: I always try to be positive and happy on here but sometimes life just takes over and I have very little positivity. My thoughts and what is going on around me just takes over and I am a mess. I am human, and even though I am so blessed I still have bad days and go through some hard times. Don’t we all? Which is why I haven’t posted since last week. Just wanted to keep it real around here for ya’ll.
I haven’t slept since last Wednesday, and I can honestly say that I haven’t NOT slept this much in a very long time. I can count the number of hours of sleep I’ve gotten since then pretty much on one hand, and that is not ok around here. If you’ve been reading for a while, you know I am a grandma and am usually asleep by 10pm the latest. Well guys, I saw all hours of the night every day (not even exaggerating), and it hasn’t been fun. I just need to GO TO SLEEP!
But, it’s a new day and I am trying to keep a smile on my face and remember all of the good that God has given me!
So, let’s focus on the positives today with some happy things!
Coffee & Starbucks
Do you see those bags under my eyes? Yikes. XL DD all day long, and green tea in the afternoon, please!!
I love you’s in sweet baby voices and snuggles
Oh my goodness. I just can’t get enough of these babes. I brought over my Stella Lou so we could play since they went to Build A Bear this weekend. It was so sweet, Gio made me a “bed” on the couch and laid out a blanket for me to “rest”. (Even they could tell I needed sleep, haha) I just melt!
Surprise chocolate covered strawberries delivered at my door from Edible Arrangements from my Disbride Secret Pal and making me feel so very very loved! Nom nom nom!
It is totally acceptable to eat chocolate covered strawberries for every meal, right? 😉
I haven’t been getting out of bed in the morning at normal times, and even though I have had pretty much little motivation, I still got my bum in motion with runs, walks, and bodyweight workouts. Gotta get my sweat on!
Praying, and more praying
Because I find my strength in Jesus and know that he is always on my side.
I don’t know where I would be without my family. They help pick me up when I am down, and get me out of the house when I feel like hiding under my blankets all day. (Thanks Mama)
…just wanted to keep it real around here. I am not perfect, and I stumble along the way sometimes. But having all of these things helps to make me smile when I am struggling.
