Timehop this morning reminded me of this post I shared exactly a year ago...3 months after Clark's birth, which makes it 15 months today.
And as I read through my post from a year ago as I was sitting snuggling with Teddy, I did a bit of reflecting.
Just looking back at the past year and where I am today. And I thought, "Man. This is the most perfect post for my grateful project." -- which, side note, I am really enjoying. It it forcing me to look at something -- a different something! -- sometimes big, sometimes small, every single day and do a bit of reflecting on it to really look at the things I have in my life that I'm grateful for. I'm sure days will be challenging not to repeat anything, but it does really force me to be grateful for the little things that I think sometimes go unnoticed in the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Anyways, I waned to share what I had posted for my #MooneyGrateful366 project today because I feel like, 15 months later, I needed to share it here on my blog too.
Timehop reminded me today that a year ago we were three months out from Clark’s birth. Not a minute goes by that little boy isn’t at the forefront of my mind...and every day he sends different little reminders of what he’s given us. Today, 15 months after we had to say goodbye, I’m sitting here snuggling the most perfect little rainbow and I’m so grateful for that — that his big brother hand-picked him for us and that today, the 29th of the month, I get to spend my afternoon snuggling him as he sleeps away in my arms. Clark’s story ignited a chain of life events (quitting my teaching job and working for myself being a big one) and today this is where I am. And I love it. And I’m so grateful for that little boy of ours who helped me get right here. Because if I can’t snuggle him, I take comfort in him watching over us as I snuggle his little brother 💙🌈
