I have no postpartum or even baby blues either. Heavenly Father has blessed our family with so much. So why do I feel so overwhelmed and so snappy? It is bothering me. I don't want to feel this way. I don't want to seem ungrateful for all that I have been, and am being given because that is not the case at all.
I cannot express in words how truly grateful I am for each of my beautiful, sweet children. I also can't tell you how thankful I am for my husband--who is best friend, and an amazing father to our children! I love my family with all my heart and want to do all that I can each day to show them. I don't want to waste precious moments being snappy, impatient or forgetting what is truly important.
I am thankful to spend each day with my family, my children--teaching them and loving them. I have been told recently, especially in the last few weeks, that I should consider school for them again to lighten my load. No, sorry, this will not happen. No one loves or knows my children more than I do, besides Heavenly Father. I want to be their teacher. I love it, I enjoy it and I truly feel that my prayers have been heard and answered to help me be creative and inspired to teach them these last 6 months, and I know that this is what is best for our family.
This week, and tonight especially, I have spent time reading and reflecting. Reminding myself of what matters most, what doesn't, and where my priorities need to be. My goal for this month is simple--love my children and my husband unconditionally, and show them this outwardly, and try harder to find joy in each moment of each day. I don't want to take anything for granted. No regrets.
What matters most to me is pretty simple, here it is in pictures:
