It’s so easy for me to dip into the abyss of self pity, but I’ve been trying to notice little moments during the day and sink into how grateful I am.
Sometimes after I put my son down for a nap, I lay down on the floor and close my eyes just for 2 min. before attending to the long list of things I want to scurry around and get done while he’s asleep. As I lay there, it’s just so beautiful to have that time. To let my aching lower back sink into the floor, to rest my tired eyes that were up all night with the baby, to feel the softness of my hair on my arms, to feel safe inside my home, to be the perfect temperature, what a gift that I can lay there like that for those minutes.
