This Moment

Life is full of ups and downs.  I tend to talk/write about the downs.  It’s how I process problems, work through stress, and deal.  I realize that maybe this is painting a lopsided picture, because in actuality life is pretty grand.  But then, is it okay to say that? If I do say it, is that a humble brag, a brag, or just obnoxious?

This morning we went for a walk through the park.  It was sunny, the birds were chirping, R was happy, I was feeling productive.  Then I saw this door…


Someone had the foresight to make this lovely door face a public park and remind passersby to be at peace.  While my daily grind is jam packed with planning meals,  cleaning, entertaining/educating a child, this moment was one that reminded me how lucky I am to have the chance to do all of it.
