I completely forgot to write about this last week. When my mom got into town on Friday we went to pick Riley up from school. Of course mom grabbed him first and was loving on him and he was loving mom right back! Getting a bit jealous, picking Riley up from school is my favorite part of everyday, I clap my hands and hold them out in front of Riley. Riley looks at me, looks at my hands, gets a sweet smile on his sweet little face and he…………LEANS for me to take him!!!! It melted my heart and once again confirmed that this is what life is all about. Having a little one means not getting to be selfish, not having extra money, and always putting someone before yourself. And just let me say, TOTALLY WORTH IT! I wouldn’t have it any other way!

I just read what I wrote and it got me thinking. We (the human race) tend to focus on the things going wrong or what we don’t have, etc, etc, etc. It is easy to get wrapped up in that so I just want to write a short list of things I am thankful for.
