Exhaustion - 22nd Day of Gratitude

Some things just have to be seen to be believed.

I have a child, who, for the most part, does not stop.

LJ is on the move most of the time.  Sure, he gets tired, eventually.  Usually just in time for bed!

These school holidays I have tried my best to keep up with him, but it is usually me who ends up having an afternoon nap so I can get through the day.

Today, however, after we had dropped the older sibling off at the train, visited with a friend who has dogs (which kept LJ moving) and then went to the skate park, I felt such a sense of accomplishment when we finally decided to settle on the lounge for an afternoon movie.

So you cannot imagine my joy, when I glanced around a few minutes later to see this ...


I call that mission accomplished!

Today, I am grateful for exhaustion.

  1. Hi Sandra. Ness here. Haven't stopped by for a while...

    I love a good afternoon snooze but my boys rarely do these day. Glad you're finding things to be grateful for. It's something I need to do myself.

    1. Hi Ness! Great to hear from you. Life keeps us all busy, I too need to pay you a visit! Must say, having an attitude of gratitude changes things. I do recommend it. I try to keep it up more on a personal level all year. One day it will be my default. :-)
