I have been in a slump lately. I'm not depressed, but for some reason I have been uncharacteristically negative. I had a long list of excuses, but I will choose to blame it on my crazy hormones. And for some stupid reason, the only "cures" to my disposition cost a zillion dollars. So to fix my slump, I have been writing lists (yes, I LOVE lists) of the blessings in my life and all the reasons to be thankful. This really does help....A LOT!!
I tell people that my eldest daughter Sofia is sweet. But I want to say is that she is docile, aims to please, exceedingly polite, respectful, considerate, rarely defiant, and has basically been the perfect first child for me. A few weeks ago Sofia "wrote me a letter". Then she decided to read it to me. I watch this video on a daily basis and it warms my heart and reminds me to be thankful and happy.
This video is not the original version of her "letter". The first version was way more humorous as it talked a lot about how she was "sorry that I was always throwing up and that my belly was getting fat" and how she will take good care of me. I like this version better.
I debated posting such a long video, but since this is my blog....I suppose I can post whatever I want! So, this post was for me.
Thank you for my letter and making me the happiest mommy alive. I love you very much.
