Reality Check

We seem to lose sight of what is important in life.  This past year has been difficult for me, and I have been completely honest with all those around me. I am not exactly sure of the reason but I feel that it has been important for me to try and understand what exactly has been bugging me for some time now. I have reached a conclusion, but I am not quite ready to share it with the world. I feel when the time is right, I will be able to share and then I will truly be able to let go of what is bothering me.

My kids are my life. I think I get lost in the fact that I am able to care for them physically that I forget that they are little people that need support in order to grow into the people they will be when they are my age. There are times when I’d rather be doing other things than worrying about playing Operation or “tickle monster”. These last few weeks, I have been taking a long look at my life. I have been looking at the things in my life that do not make sense and simply tossing them in the trash.

It was really nice, the other day, when I was outside and it was just Sunny and I. It has been so long since I have felt so calm and generally happy. And then I felt that I have really taken what I have in life for granted. My kids are both healthy, I have a roof over my head, a husband that loves and takes care of me, and so much more.

From now on, I am going to be me. I am going to be honest with those around me and I am going to live my life to the fullest and enjoy my kids.

With this said; here is what Sunny was doing outside the other day that just tickled my spine.

She was giving her "babies" a ride.

The smallest things in life are what make it great!  I think we all forget that at one point or another.  It is time for self discovery and living!
