Some days finding the Positive in the everyday or finding something beyond the basics to be thankful for is really easy. Other days, it's almost like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Today is one of those latter days.
However, as I started to compose this post, God made me realise that I actually have it good and all the complaints and negativity that I was going to write just all disappeared. On the whole, Jasmine really is a good baby and if on days like today she screams (not cries) for a solid hour and a half, well, that's nothing compared to some other babies. And I'm just thankful that I don't have multiple babies (sorry Ali if you're reading this!).
Yes, I may be extremely exhausted.
Yes, I may feel frazzled beyond belief because of her crying.
Yes, I may feel like I'm at the end of my tether.
But hey, I did manage to survive today and I'll be able to survive other days like it. I just needed to take a step back and be thankful how Jasmine is now for it could be a lot worse.
Are you going through trying times at the moment and find it hard to be thankful? Or are you the opposite to me today and have upteen things to be thankful for?
