Today is November 12th & this is my eleventh Thankvember post. Oops. Skipped a day!
Today, and every day, I'm thankful for: LOVE
I'm not a poet, but I know that "All you need is love (doo doo doo doo do doooo)", "love is my religion", and this:
Maybe you won't listen to this, but this one is a song that (if I could hold a tune) I'd sing it from my soul every single day to the ones that I love.
Love is so important to me. I feel it each and every day from Roxy, from Riley, from Zoie, from Daddy and even from Bentley (the dog). I hope with all my heart they feel my reciprocation, but... being me, I always want to try harder.
I was reading Sometimes Sweet earlier and she mentioned her Little Goals for the week. I used to make small goals for myself every week & her post inspired me to make my own Little Goals list today. I want to dedicate this list of goals to the ones that I love. After all, they are my biggest inspirations.
- Do *whatever* it takes to treat each and every one of my littles + my big Daddy that need attention with the respect they deserve and give them my undivided attention. I've been so busy lately, I've found myself rushing them through their stories, or just speaking some generic positive feedback so I can go about with my chores at that moment. I need to stop cutting corners with those MVPs in my life.
- Give myself some down time every day. I've totally been gypping myself, so I need to give me at least 30 minutes each day to relax.
- Play, at least once a day, with the kids. Cuddle, at least once a day, with the ones that I love.
Funny, my goals used to be more along the lines of do this or that or get that done. Ha! This list is all about slowing down.
The ebb and flows of life.
