Good beautiful Friday morning to you 🙂 I have been taking moments of my life this year and making sure I am present in them. This morning you can see what I was present for and thankful for.
No laughing here, I live in the Midwest, FLAT Midwest and on some mornings and evenings as I drive a few roads around where I live, the clouds will sit on the horizon and make it look as if there are mountains on the horizon. So as I drive I pretend as if I were living where I would like to retire to, somewhere with mountains, even though I am deathly afraid of driving mountain roads; and where there is a beach at the end of it. Thank you clouds for giving me this illusion once in a while.
Thank you honey for stopping and picking up a couple of bottles of Red Wine this weekend past, I was going to enjoy one glass that night but never got to it, but hey the next night I did. 🙂 The house was clean, the dinner was done, everyone was good and I had my glass. Merci
When I first came to this beautiful country I had the opportunity of being a nanny for a wonderful family. That family has been in my life ever since. Three out of the four children have since married, yes I am that old!! Now a baby is on the way for the oldest!!! Also the youngest has just gotten her dream job. So proud of all of them, and I got to hang out with three of them this weekend before last, they are so amazing and I am so happy to be a part of their lives.
I got to just hang with this goofball of a kid. She makes me laugh, she makes me take it one moment at a time. She makes me sees things in a different light, I am in awe of how she sees life and how wise she is. Remember to always take the moment to listen to someone younger than you, you may learn a thing or two.
Lastly I earned some AMAZBALL mummy points this week. I took the teens car and filled it up. Yep, while freezing my buns off, I did this for her. She text me a huge thank you afterwards and asked how much. I said I have no idea I didn’t look. She then asked well how am I supposed to pay you back. I said “No worries mate, this one is on us!”
Apologies for quality of pictures, I was in the moment in each of these moments this week… 🙂
