There are times when I look around and realize I need to be more positive. I am trying to find the silver lining these days and tonight that hit me especially hard. On most nights when putting the kids to bed I am trying to hurry through it and hoping they fall asleep quickly so I can have my quiet time or get a list of things done. Tonight I realized that I should be so happy that my kids still want me to tuck them in and sit with them til they are asleep. It is time where we can talk quietly without being interrupted and sing songs to them. The days keep going by faster and faster and I know that it will be too soon before they are grown. So a resolution for me is to enjoy our bedtime routine. Most of the time it is simple things that bring me joy, and taking the time to notice the little miracles that happen daily will overshadow the negative. Life is having it's ups and downs with us and there is so much to be greatful for. I'm trying to find that silver lining all around me becuase I know it is there and I just need to look a little harder to find it.
