a simple ten :: good things

the last wee while I've been finding myself less than happy
noticing and dwelling on the things that aren't
driving in the car with tears welling
it could be hormones, could be sleep deprivation, could be general circumstances of husband recovering from accident and six children and all their needs
whatever it is doesn't really matter
because I can refocus
and so here is my ten
my little list of goodness
to help me shift  my focus and begin the week well

two lots of small, soft, squishy fingers and toes
the words of a song that say it better than I could
her drawings
banana cake warm and shared while laughing at Modern Family
sun shining through dark grey 
meeting a kindred spirit
the way he is giving it his all
a gift in the mail that makes me laugh
the way he loves me
that there is always, always hope 

May you have a great week finding yourself focusing and smiling on the good that is in your days.

You certainly have a lot on your plate. Keep focusing and when this season is over you will be amazed at how quickly your time with babies and toddlers has flown. Those babies are gorgeous!
