It's All Good

I grabbed a book today, not that there is any free time to read it. I just wanted to escape. Feel free for a minute. Forget the world that feels like it's crashing down around me.

I read the first three pages and I was bored. So much for that.

I guess, really, I don't want to escape. I just want to slow down. Breathe easy. Let my heart slow down for just a minute. Relish in the good, where I can find it.

But it's all around, isn't it? Despite the bad, the ugly, the horrible. There is good. Lots of it.

Smiles. Cuddles. Hugs. Husband making dinner. A few extra minutes of sleep in the morning. Clean clothes. A fresh roll of toilet paper when I thought we were out (SCORE!). Toys on the floor. Smiley faces on homework assignments. Blankets pulled up tight. Heartfelt, thoughtful comments on facebook. Little baby kicks.

It's all good.

  1. It is all good! Just have to remember to count the blessings. How lucky that yours include little baby kicks. Those are the best!

  2. Oh, that good. Yes, to all of it.

    (I needed that reminder.)

    Thank you.

  3. This is simply beautiful! And I really get this - it's easy for me to let every little thing pile up in my mind and feel overwhelmed and "stuck", until my son or daughter climbs up into my lap and simply says "i love you, mommy". THOSE are the moments I live for. :)

  4. It may be all good, but there are some days where we just need a break. Love ya mama!!!
