Mom has been doing pretty well lately. I’m blessed to have her in enjoy the little things in life. This brings the title of this post today.
This weekend, I was at a baby shower and there was a little book of inspirational quotes and we signed it with our own words of advice. Mine was to take the good with the bad in life. Things here have been pretty interesting to say the least. But today my mom got to enjoy the little thing in my husband and I’s life.. our son got his learner’s permit for driving today. She has enjoyed the huge smile on his face all day. I’m so proud of him. And I’m so blessed to see her enjoy this moment that I didn’t know if she would see. That smile is precious.
We have to sometimes take a step back in our own caregiving world to see the world around us. In my case, between the pain I’ve been having (suffer from chronic pain), the stress that has been unreal lately, and just general life, I had to take a step back and realize what was important today. My son is important and we don’t get out like we use too. Today, I made myself enjoy this moment.
Take this to heart. Never feel guilty for enjoying your life. The person you are taking care of doesn’t want you to suffer. I know that sometimes it’s impossible to get away, but that is when you ask for help. Trust me, go enjoy your life. Even if it’s just for a few moments.
