November is here! segment 7 and 8

Yes, I knew it would eventually happen, I didn't post yesterday, ahhh! I didn't get any computer time. I usually get on at night after I've gotten all the kids to bed. Last night Miss P was having a rough time going to sleep, I guess her nap was too late. So, that leads me to...

I am thankful for the nights I get to rock and sing to my baby girl while she'll still let me. I'm thankful for those moments she lays her head on my shoulder and plays with my hair, and when she turns her face to mine and gives me kisses. I'm also thankful for bedtime, when the house is quiet and the things I pick up stay picked up until the next day. I'm thankful for those late night hours that I have to myself to read and relax.

I am thankful for change. I'm thankful that I'm still me, but I'm not that insecure, immature, overly sensitive (ok, still a bit overly sensitive) teenage girl I once was. I'm thankful that the numbers on the scale, although still way too high, are continuing to go down, be it ever so slowly. I'm thankful (yes again) for a husband that loves me through it all and still continues to tell me how beautiful I am (even at my worst).

Thank you for reminding me to be grateful. Because sometimes I'm not and lately I haven't been. I needed a major attitude adjustment.
It's bee adjusted. Thank you.

Kelly, you know what many mothers don't until their babies are all grown up...to enjoy them while they are still little. Savor it all.
