So today I visited the dentist to have a tooth extraction and implant done yuck. So it's safe to say I'm not feeling the best, it's been a long day and my mouth is very sore. But in the midst of all the pain I felt so blessed my sweet Mr. A took off work early to take care of me and to watch baby Carys so that I could rest. While I was napping on the couch my sweet girl would pull up on the edge of the sofa and pat my shoulder as if to say "feel better mommy" I felt so loved and so blessed to be a part of my amazing little family.
I often find myself wishing that I could change things about my life and about myself but the truth is after days like today I realize I am right where I need to be. Sure money can be tight, sure I wish my house stayed cleaner, sure I wish I was in better shape, sure I wish my whole family was healthy, but in the still moments of the day when I look around and I see Carys's toys strung out all over the living room floor I am reminded of the moments we had playing with those toys the evening before, or when I see the dirty dishes in the sink I am reminded of the meal Mr. A and I cooked together, or even when I look in the mirror to see a swollen jaw and sore spot where a tooth once was I am reminded of how my loving family took good care of their mommy today and I can't help but feel overwhelmingly blessed.

Later Alligators....

Mrs. A

Hope your feeling better! is easy to feel defeated when you see the dust bunnies and dirty dishes..but like you said..its a reminder of the good things as a great meal and time spent playing with a baby! I have dust bunnies galore right now!
