"Don't wanna forget or take for granted... That it's a beautiful life we live"
That’s the first lyric I heard after our newborn decided to pee on me while changing his diaper. I was SOOOOOOOO frustrated. I was in the beginning stages of planning my pity party when I heard "Don't wanna forget or take for granted... That it's a beautiful life we live".
All of a sudden I went from frustration to being thankful.
Yes, I had just been peed on my a two week old little boy… But I was able to hold that little boy and love on him.
Yes, the living room was a mess and the house resembled a war zone… But there was laughter and smiles that were barely being contained by the four walls of the house.
Yes, we were so busy this weekend that we only had Mac and Cheese for dinner… But the kids thought they hit the jackpot when I announced Mac & Cheese was tonight’s fine dinning.
The Dishes are dirty… The laundry is piling up… the dog ate a sock… one of the kids drew a master piece on their bedroom wall in marker… But laughter, smiles, hugs and cuddle time remind me…
That it's a beautiful life we live!
