Hard to believe it’s already Easter. That SPRING is finally here and we’re patiently waiting for our pool to reach a warmer temperature so we can float on our ice cream floats.
It’s also crazy to think that last year at this time we announced we were pregnant – the first time around. Not going to lie, as we prepare for Easter weekend with family I can’t help but feel a little bummed. I thought we would have had another little with us this Easter BUT as life would have it (I need to trust the timing) having my mom sick in a hospital for almost a week would not have been conducive to having a 3 month old either. That in the end my time, energy and love needed to be with her, my dad and sister as we try to get her healthy and home.
So perspective, folks. It’s important, but only if you can see it. As much as I’d like to dwell on the COULD HAVE BEENS I’m reminded over the course of the past week to BE PRESENT and focus on the NOW. Life changes and happens fast and why miss out on the good by letting the sad win?
My mom is finally home – before Easter, before her 63rd trip around the sun and that’s a beautiful thing. And so are messy brown Easter eggs that have been placed in every color cup a million times.
Lastly, this floral shirt makes me happy – so another reminder – wear makes you happy.
