It hasn't felt like that so much recently. For some reason I have been very irritable lately. Maybe it's the stress of me working extra hours, Keith working extra hours, the construction going on everyday at my house, or Ella going through a stage of sassy disobedience that seems like it will never end. I have no idea. But it is definitely a slump I need to get out of.
Mother's Day was perfect though. I was so happy. Every second of the day...I was happy. It has been so long since I truly lived in the moment. I didn't care what had happened the hour before or what was happening the hour after. It wasnt complicated. I didnt have 10 different things on my mind that I needed to get done. I laughed with Ella all day instead of disciplining her. Everything she did I thought was amazing...as if I had never seen it before. I was clear and refreshed. Keith and I joked around instead of being angry with each other. I had so much gratitude for where I am in life and who I have in my life.
I felt HAPPY. I felt LOVED. It was SIMPLE.
