Needless to say 30 minutes turned into hours and I did not realize this until my eyes felt heavy and my back hurt. Then after I thought I was finished, I remember I had not composed my post for the 30 Days Grateful I am doing for the month of November. At that moment my eldest daughter came in the room and saw my tired face and said "Mom go to bed". To which I frustratingly answered "I can't!" followed by a crying "I've been here for hours and just realized I have not done my grateful post!!".
During this dialogue I did not realize that my eldest G-kid was listening in. She came immediately towards me, shoved my laptop to the side away from me and opened her arms wide and gave me the most loving, tender, tight hug I've ever received. My heart just melted in her embrace and nothing else mattered.
As I lay my head to rest and my soul to sleep, I ponder upon what I am grateful for today...loving, tender, tight hugs!
Your turn to share what you are grateful for today :)
