Last year was so exhausting, in the rush and transitions not only was I slowly getting more overwhelmed by the situations i was put into, but when I needed to search for my blessings I got out of a habit of being grateful. I've been so spent, not celebrating the small things and focusing on my to do list just makes me anxious, emotional, and irritable. I need to realize that this short time my children are little my work will never be done, and thats okay, it isn't something I can control so I might as wall not stress about it.
This year I'm determined to get myself back to a habit of gratefulness, a part of that is being here more often, blogging has always helped me to look for the lovely bits of my day, sweet moments, even if its something small like a moment of knitting and tea.
So here are a few pictures of my grateful moments over the last two weeks...
His sweet smiles
chubby Bear paws
sharing favorite things
Little girls who want to be big
big eneough to brush herself off when she falls
and keep on going
red berries, blue sky
my lovely christmas preasent, finished and so soft!
going through my projects realizing that i will never make that afghan and turning the squares into trivets/ pot-holders
finally finishing the body to a cardigan, and the ability to improvise when i have the wrong amount of stitches, "I'll make a raglan cardigan instead!"
PS: I've started to portrait a week again over here already on week two
