Healthy Children-WE ARE BLESSED!

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

I'm having one of those days I would love to sit and cry. The kids have gotten into EVERYTHING! Everything I cleaned yesterday is no longer clean. They have eaten peanut butter out of the jar, put the dog food in the water dish, trashed the bathroom, spilled the filtered water (1 gallon) in the fridge, and I'm sure more as I was cleanning all this up. Days like today I'd love to throw my hands up and say I quit, I'm done! then I stop and think....
My kids are healthy enough to make this mess, my kids are healthy enough to get around, my kids can talk and yell, my kids can do things that some children will never be able to do! So for all of you who have days like this remember WE ARE BLESSED WITH HEALTHY ACTIVE CHILDREN! We are lucky, I know alot of Mom's who would love to have their children make these types messes.

I second that Tasha! I love that you turned a bad day into a positive. Thats what I do and it helps me really focus on what is important in life. My husband works in another province and comes home once a month. People ask me, how do I do it? I tell myself...At least he has a job! So many people are loosing thier homes, etc. You have to find the positive in the negative. It all in your perception. Thanks for this positve thought.
