Simple Things

Ahh the simple things.

My life is chock-full right now. Busy, busy, busy.

And we're just about to enter the busiest time of year.

I'm doing a lot for myself. I'm working more than I have in years, I've taken on some new things (please come to my Pilates class on Tuesdays, if you are a Gold's Gym member!), but I am trying desperately to hold on to some balance with the boys.

I'm not there yet, I'm a little stretched in all directions right now, but I am working on bringing myself back to center.

One way I do that is by stopping to acknowledge the good moments. Really acknowledge them. Put my cell phone down. Take a few pictures. Breathe. Stop making lists and consulting the calendar in my head. Focus my eyes and my mind on what's really important.

Like taking my Big Boy for ice cream after our wedding date last weekend. Just the three of us: Me, Him, and His Favorite Thing In The World.

It was so great, and I am grateful I actually saw it.

He thought it was pretty cool, too.
