the other morning flash and the bean went to the grocery store to grab a few things. they brought me home this plant just because. the bean was so excited to give it to me and i was doubly excited to receive it. my heart touched that my boys remembered me and wanted to give to me for no special reason at all.
this week has been tumultuous for us. i have done my best to stay grounded and not to take my own stress and worries out on the kids. the truth is that at times i have failed. in those moments what i have fallen onto is trying to be accepting of my own bad moments. to love myself right through them. and not to give them more power than they need. to be in a bad space for a few moments is not a decision to go sour for the week. the more i remember this the simpler it gets.
