Rainy Day & Little Blessings

There is something really relaxing about a steady rainfall. I have my sliding door open so I can sit and listen to it pour down. Two of my three little ones are still asleep. They slept right through the crashes of thunder. I guess they need the sleep. Little one is up, of course, and already deep into her imaginary play with her Polly Pockets.

Yesterday was a wonderful day. I finally decided that I have put off taking care of myself long enough. I ate healthy and got in a workout. It felt so good. Now I just need to keep it up. I am actually very excited to workout today. As soon as Dora the Explorer is done. Nadia is not going to share the TV right now and I like to workout to FIT TV.

All day yesterday I kept thinking to myself, "I have a blessed life". I know there are many moms that dream about staying home with their kids and I am very blessed to be able to do it. I have crazy days that I wish I was working, but most days are filled with going to the pool, riding bike and ball games.

Last night my hubby was working at home. My middle daughter was trying to get out of going to bed so she was pestering him with questions. She asked him, "Why do you have to work so much?" Before he could answer I said, "So I can stay home with you guys every day."

Everyday is filled with little blessings from God. I am happy that it is raining. Maybe today the girls and I can spend some quality time together and celebrate these little moments. I am linking to Chatting at the Sky for Tuesdays Unwrapped. I am celebrating being a stay at home mom today.

Everyone is up and ready to start their day. I better get everyone breakfast before the morning gets away from us and it is time for lunch.

It's a totally different mom life when you stay at home. I love staying home listening to the rain outside. I love having the energy to answer questions and pay attention to details!

I love rainy days! They can make you slow down. Enjoyed reading your blog and kept scrolling through older posts. The Mighty To Save lyrics were comforting to read this a.m. Thanks!
