Gratitude

I heard something great the day other day, and have been thinking about it a lot lately. I was talking to someone at church about having babies, and she mentioned that it’s not the baby that makes everything crazy, it’s everything else. It’s so true isn’t it? Babies are such a wonderful happy thing, they bring so much joy! It is the business of life that brings the stress and rushing and craziness. Thinking about it has made me relax a little more and make sure I take the time to snuggle my little boy just a little longer and appreciate these days where he is still so small. The other day we waited three hours in the doctor’s office (I think they forgot us. When I went up to ask the nurse how much longer it be since there was no one else left in the waiting room, she looked really surprised and then rushed us back, where a few of the nurses were already heading out to lunch. Awkward…). A three hour wait in an office with a baby could be stressful,boring, long, but we really had fun. I let Sawyer play with the other babies if the momma’s were friendly, we played lots and lots of peek-a-boo and he had a good nap on my chest, which he hasn’t done in months. It was great! Our lesson in Sunday School last week was about gratitude and I think remembering to be grateful for everything really helped my attitude about everything this week, and gave me the chance to have a great, fun three hours of waiting rather than a boring, antsy wait. After all, how could I not be grateful to spend everyday with this cutie?

Good Morning Loretta
