One of my favorite times of day is first thing in the morning. I'm not usually a morning person, but my son and I have a little morning routine. Usually it's full of lots of snuggles. I will wake up for those any day. The other thing we do is we put on our boots and head out to the water the garden. We're still in our pajamas so thank goodness we don't have any neighbors close by. Every morning we make our rounds and water the plants just as the sun starts to peak over the trees. Tre usually get bored after the first planter box and runs off to play. The air is full of laughter as he plays on the swing set or chases our dog Kahlua around the yard. She knocked over two of my freshly planted flower pots this morning, so we're not friends at the moment but she sure does love that boy. Tre's newest thing is that he likes to hold my hand and walk me all over the property to see the new things that he's found. I know one day his hand will be bigger than mine but I love to look down and see his little hands wrapped around my finger. "Look Mom," he says. "Look!"
I'm so thankful for this time with him. The Esophageal Dysmotility I've been struggling with can make it very hard sometimes. I spent time in the ER again last week and it took a bit to recover. I'm having a very hard time eating enough calories and it's now apparent that my body doesn't function well when it's not getting the calories or nutrients it needs. I am working with a great Doctor and Dietician now, so hopefully we will be able to get back on track soon. It looks like I'll be blending most, if not all meals. My son Tre isn't too fond of the Vitamix, but he loves picking fresh greens for the smoothies. His favorite is the chocolate peanut butter shake. He lines up the glasses on the counter, my big one and his little one. He has no idea how many vegetables he's consuming, but I melt every time he looks up from his glass and gives me the biggest smile, smoothie mustache and all.
My little man is asking for breakfast now so I must get going. I don't know what your day will bring you, but I hope you are able to take a moment and find something to be thankful for. Sometimes that is all you need to turn your day around. Find the bigger picture or a little happy thought.
Happy day to you my friend, I hope it's a great one!
