Gratitude

April 9, 2017

I was planning on writing a completely different post today… more along the lines of how exhausted I am from my busy babies and crazy big kids. How tired I am of breaking of fights, picking up toys and making food no one eats. Motherhood is sure a thankless job, isn’t it? Despite the long week, my heart is full of gratitude.
