I was just looking through some photos and came across these pictures of Linc and I watching a thunderstorm roll in this weekend. I am not sure why but it just seems like one of those moments that was special.
I believe it was one of many firsts for us.
I have been so stressed lately. I just feel like I have so many pressures right now. The end of a school year, the purchasing of a home, starting grad school, my brother/nanny/roommate/friend is moving across the country, and I have somehow acquired another heartbroken semi permanent roommate and her dog.
I just need to remember that all of these things are blessings.
The summer has almost arrived.
I am fortunate enough to be able to buy a house for me and Linc.
I have the opportunity to go to grad school so that I can get paid more (knowledge is overrated, money is my motivation, sorry but I have to be honest).
I have a brother who lived with and loved my son wholeheartedly for the first 9 months of his life, I don’t think I could have asked for anyone better to watch over him while I was at work. He will be missed , but we were lucky to have him while we did.
And, I have amazing friends who have always been there for me (and goodness knows, I have needed it), and I am glad that I am able to return the favor.
I can choose to focus on the negatives, and be stressed, frazzled, and angry.
But I won’t.
I choose to be thankful.
Did i mention that my friends dog isn’t potty trained…
I know you all wanted to see my gross feet 🙂
