Checking In

by Christine@TheAums on December 19, 2012 · 24 comments

Busy? Check.
Overwhelmed? Check.
Stressed? Check.
Emotional? Check.

And then this happens:

She is just one of four daily reminders I get to take a deep breath, smile, laugh, move forward, appreciate. My husband, friends, and family do a pretty good job, too.

Lucky? Check.
Blessed? Check.
Loved? Check.
Grateful? Most definitely.

Who reminds you to take it easy when you need it most?

Love you, too. Kids still bringing up your visit on a weekly basis over here. Everything from remembering something funny Madhava did, or finding a long hair and saying, “I think this is one of Rad’s” LOL.

I was reading along and feeling your stress. Then I scrolled down. And giggled out loud. Thanks for the laugh. It helped. What a wonderful moment well captured.

Happy Sharefest. I hope you have a lovely weekend and happy holidays.

I can’t believe I got such a great shot of her with my phone! Glad she could help relieve a little stress in the world.

Love that picture! My daughter has the same dress!!! So cute – and my three year old does silly things like that too. Love it. They are a constant reminder!
