It’s now been exactly 30 days since I started writing these daily posts. In a future post I’m going to write more about how this has impacted me. In short, writing daily gratitude posts has helped me appreciate all that I have, even the simple things I normally take for granted. I’ve learned that if you seek out the good in your life, you’ll find it.
I’ve written about my kids several times over the last month, but with today being day 30, I’ve been thinking about what’s most important in my life.
This afternoon my wife took our two older kids to run some errands while I stayed home with our one-year-old. I loved having 1:1 time with her. She is the most precious thing in the world and always has a smile on her face. I don’t know if babies come any sweeter.
Later in the day I took the older kids out to dinner. We had a dance contest and a funny face contest while we waited for our food. They were so much fun to be with.
Raising children is not easy—And I’m not with them nearly as much as my wife is. Sometimes they frustrate me. Sometimes they drive me crazy. But they are great kids and I am lucky to be their dad.
I’m grateful for my kids.
