Life has been really good lately, really good, and that has me feeling pretty darn happy. I don't mean good in the sense that everything is going right in our world, because it definitely isn't. We have our struggles just as every other family does. Lately though a sense of contentment has washed over me. I am feeling happy and content with what is. It may not always be what I dream of, but in the grand scheme of things it is all good.
We have surrounded ourselves with wonderful people who accept us for who we are, our families are supportive of our lifestyle and the decisions we are making as we move forward on our journey as parents, and I have been fortunate enough to find some amazing, supportive friends through blogging and social media who I turn to often with questions, concerns or just my thoughts.
As a family we are moving ourselves towards a deeper, more meaningful connection with the earth, we are finding ways each and every day to live more simply and working together to ensure we are nourishing and supporting our own individual passions.
Every night before I lay my head down, I take time to offer gratitude for all of this and more. All of it makes my heart sing. It makes me smile in the quiet moments of my day. It fills me up and simply put, it makes me happy.
It is a good place to be, and I am going to soak it up as long as I can.
