I think it is easy to focus on big events – trips, holidays, school events, races…..
It’s getting in your car on a cold morning and realizing that your husband got gas for you the night before so you wouldn’t have to freeze while doing it yourself!
It’s spending your evening at an 8th grade orchestra concert and realizing how much all of the kids have improved since 5th grade!
It’s spending a Monday off running mundane errands like Walmart and the grocery store but having company while you do it!!!
It’s spending a chunk of the weekend being a bum and watching an entire season of Modern Family!!
It’s making dinner at 2:00 in the afternoon so that it can be thrown in the oven while you drive to a meeting and the family can still enjoy dinner together.
It’s running 10 miles faster than you ever have before and feeling good doing it- even if it’s a normal day and you are by yourself on a treadmill.
It’s going to bed at the end of the day knowing that tomorrow is another day you get to enjoy with your family!!!
So, even though I would love to be dreaming about a trip to Hawaii (or anyplace with a beach!!) I will be happy with pictures from previous trips and enjoy the little things currently making up my life!!!
