Gratitude for another day…

This week­end my girl/boy twins turned 4 years old.  Birth­days are gen­er­ally for the peo­ple who were born but as a mother it is a cel­e­bra­tion as well.  We sur­vived the early years of long, tir­ing days and sleep­less nights.  Nurs­ing until past their 2nd birth­day and the gen­eral ter­ror of two beings able to per­form fatal acts.  This week­end I cel­e­brated the hard work of moth­er­ing and treated myself to reflect­ing on all our accom­plish­ments and strug­gles over the years.  We have all come so far in the past 4 years.  I encour­age all moms to cel­e­brate their role in the birth of their chil­dren.  Whether bio­log­i­cal or adopted moth­ers play a key role in a child’s liv­ing in this life.  Moms deserve a lit­tle recog­ni­tion for the hard work that they do.

The 4’s have also brought a new stage of devel­op­ment for the kids, Oppo­si­tion. You know that stage. The one where every time you say some­thing, they do the exact oppo­site.  My sweet, lov­ing, coop­er­a­tive daugh­ter has turned into Lit­tle Miss NO.   I love that she is find­ing her inde­pen­dence and learn­ing to speak up for her­self. I wish she could do it a bit less defi­antly. Either way I love them both and look for­ward to the new changes in the year to come.

GratitudeToday I am grate­ful for…

  • Another year to watch my chil­dren grow and develop.
  • Cel­e­brat­ing our lives together and the joy of par­tic­i­pat­ing in a family.
  • Being able to have and raise healthy chil­dren I believe will one day make the world a bet­ter place.
  • Liv­ing con­sciously and learn­ing to com­mu­ni­cate openly with compassion.
  • Love.

What are  you grate­ful for today?
