I had a depressed day yesterday. Maybe it was coming back from vacation. Maybe it was having no activities during the week. Maybe it was just hump day. All I know is it was one of those days when I felt sorry for myself for not having a mentally stimulating career, for having to change so many poopy diapers, blah blah blah.
But this morning as I was doing the dishes and listening to my children making cat noises behind me, I turned to laugh at them and was suddenly struck by what I saw. There were two healthy children smiling up at me. In that moment I remembered how very blessed I am.
