Weekly Mantra  //

December 12, 2016 in mantra

This week is already starting out a disaster. I swear I’m not usually this doom and gloom, but GOOD GOD we have been dealt a crappy hand lately. We’re starting this week with yet another round of illnesses! I threw up over the weekend and Ari started throwing up yesterday evening. And then Chad this morning. I just can’t anymore. 😭

That being said, I’m grateful that we truly are healthier than many. Sure, we’ve had bronchitis, sinus infections, colds, and now the stomach bug; but, in keeping perspective, things could be way worse (PS Universe, this is not an open invite to throw more at us). 

I’m content knowing that Christmas is right around the corner. And with it comes a teeny break from the real world, school, and work. 

I wish for health. Nothing more, nothing less — at least, not this week. 

Happiness is seeing my kids smile at the first real snowfall. See, before Ari started throwing up yesterday, he had the opportunity to go out and play in the snow. It was perfectly fluffy snow, at that! The joy! 😍
