I am probably going to jinx things by even writing this because you know, that’s what happened last time. 😉 GOSH – KNOCKING ON WOOD RIGHT NOW. Our house is supposed to close in about a week, ya know for the second time, not bitter or anything, so praying this one closes smoothly. So we went over there yesterday since we’ve already moved out and everything, brought our little Gathre mat, cereal and Horizon milk and we had a cereal for milk party. I remember growing up and whenever we got to eat cereal for dinner is was kind of a big deal. I thought my parents were THE COOLEST on nights when we got cereal and milk instead of you know, “regular dinner”. I think Blake thought the same thing with us..I mean at least I hope so. She was super cute and honestly, I just let her do her thing and have at it. She poured her own cereal and Horizon milk (I helped with that one a little bit) and we just sat on our little mat, giggled and ate way too many bowls.
Blake thought it was hilarious watching Marcus drink his milk at the bottom out of the bowl and just kept saying “you’re so silly Daddy!”. I’ve been trying really hard to live in the moment, to focus on the things that matter and then just let other things fall into place. That doesn’t mean things are going to be perfect, in fact most days they’re FAR from it. BUT I would rather focus on the things that bring me pure happiness and joy and live my life full of kindness and that happiness and have the faith that other things will just work. What’s the point in not doing that, ya know?
So I’ve set a schedule, somewhat of a routine for myself and then I throw in these little moments and it’s been so good. I keep asking myself, WHY DIDN’T I START THIS YEARS AGO?! It seriously would’ve saved a whole lot of stress and heartache. I mean, again, things aren’t perfect, but I am filling it with more happy moments and CHOOSING to focus on those rather than the negatives.
So when I went to bed last night, I journaled (because working on that too) and wrote all about our little cereal for dinner party. I don’t want to forget these little moments, I don’t want to forget how I felt and the moment I had to just forget about the worries and focus on my two favorite people. I want to remember the cheerios spilling everywhere and the Horizon milk overflowing Blake’s bowl and spilling out the sides on the mat. *Hence why we had the mat there*. Those moments of joy watching her laugh at Marcus for the most simple thing, drinking his milk and how she would run over and “take a picture” on the tripod, then run back as fast as she could and say “Okay, picture – smile!”. Wonder where she learned that from 😉 It’s the simple things and if anything I think that Blake teaches me them the most, she loves and gets the happiest from the little things in life and well, I want to live like that.
Another simple choice for us is Horizon Organic products. They’re delicious, good for us and give us the fresh taste we love so much. It’s funny how when you have little ones in your life, your perspective changes not only on well, life, but what you’re putting in your bodies and I want her to be as healthy as possible! Their products are full of calcium, protein whole grains, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 and potassium — all the things needed to keep your body running and functioning just like it should. 😉 Check out their full selection of products, here.
