Memoirs of A Domestic Goddess

Sunday, April 03, 2011

As I am sitting at home, writing this blog I realize how much I truly love my life. It's just Caroline, Sydney and myself. I am watching Sex and The City 2, and although I have wished for that kind of life... Living in the City going out on the town with your best girlfriends, have dinner and drinks over good food and conversation... But that is not my life. My life is being a mom 24/7, as well as being a wife, sometimes a cook and the maid, even the nurse, but always loving and always their mother and my husbands other half. Does that mean the other life I envisioned is better than my own that i am currently living? No, I don't think so. It's not better or worse its just different, and not for me. I realize that I absolutely do love my life. Sure there are ups and downs and I have my moments of feeling down and overwhelmed... But I have so much to be thankful for and I am truly blessed. I have my 3 daughters, each of them different and very beautiful in their own way. I have a wonderful husband who is so good to me and goes out of his way for me each and every day. Coming up to surprise me with flowers or running a hot bubble bath for me and taking the kids so I can enjoy a little me time with a glass of wine. That is what love consists of. That is what makes our marriage wonderful the little things we do for each other. We have fights like every other couple but at the end of the day we have each other to lean on. We have each other and our kids.
So in the midst of tackling life, trying to lose this baby weight, going for my goals, I am taking the time to appreciate my life, and to count my blessings... That City girl I once envied, has nothing on me. ♥

    The previous comment by BAKERICLISA reminded me of another saying - "the grass is always greener on the other side IF u dont water and take care of your grass" . . . so very true! I saw myself in this blog :o) I have always wanted to be an elem school teacher and since having my 2 children I have been blessed with being a SAHM. Its such a hard job cuz, as u so elegantly put it, u wear so many 'hats' all in a 24hr period, 7 days a week. But as u also said - I would have it no other way! Heres to the good life! emoticon Being thankful and happy with who/what we have in our lives! U never kno - one day it may all be gone. Keep Sparkin, girl!!!

    As they say, the grass is not always greener.
