A Moment of Clarity.

Maybe you could even call it a zen moment that I had this morning. I was driving the Munchkin to school today, it's 9:00am on a Tuesday morning, the weather is B-E-A utiful, absolutely perfect. I'm in my gym clothes ready for my workout, I have 3 insanely gorgeous little girls in the back seat, and at the request of the Munchkin, who gets to pick our driving to school song every morning, we are listening to Ben Harper, Steal My Kisses. (Have I mentioned lately how incredibly cool my 3 year old is that she would rather listen to Ben Harper than the Wiggles or Barney?) So all of this is going through my mind when it hits me, I'm a fortunate person. Seriously? I'm a lucky bitch. I am doing with my life, EXACTLY what I want to do. This is what I want to be when I grow up. I want to be a Mom. Carpool line, grocery shopping, snot and butt wiping, soon to be soccer Mom.

How many people can truly say that are fullfilling their hearts desire? I remember the days when I was out making sales calls and I would see these woman dropping their kids off at school in their mini vans, or having lunch after their tennis match and I always wondered if one day that would be me? It seemed so far off at the time, but when I look back on it now it was only about 5 years ago, and granted, I'm not competing in tennis, and I don't drive a mini-van. (yet!) But still...

It was kind of funny how that influenced the rest of my day, I went to the gym and had a great work out, came home and did some laundry, put away some dishes and played with my growing up way to fast twins..... And I did it all with a smile on my face. I have to say it was a good day.

That is awesome! I still have some internal conflict due to our financial situation but everytime I think things through I end up with the same conclusion. We just have to be faithful and realize God will provide.

I am so happy you are happy! I think there are very few people who can say they are truly happy with their lives.

I must say that today was a great day. A great day to be a mom.

That's so wonderful---who would have thought we would be doing this 6 years ago and loving it so much.

Love the new blog makeover. Looks great!

I have times like this. Trying to cultivate them more and more.

Thanks for this post! It just reminded me that I too am doing exactly what I want to be doing. Sometimes I get so bogged down in the day to day that I don't even think about how lucky I am. Next time I have 10 loads of laundry to do I'll try to remember this aha moment. :-)
