Appreciation and Breathing Room

Today was a rough day.  Joe has been fussy and out-of-sorts since Friday.  No fever today, but definitely disgruntled and can now add “diffuse facial rash” to his list of complaints.  Our normal daytime walks have been greatly abbreviated.  I expected today’s walk to be no different but, thankfully, a little bit of grace came our way.  Joe fell asleep within 10 minutes and I was able to walk nearly 6km.  At one point, I stopped to appreciate the view:

A sleeping baby, a view overlooking the treetops, and gorgeous water in the background.  Most important – a little bit of time to breathe, take it all in, and appreciate my blessings 🙂

    Sounds like we both had a rough patch this week whew! That’s definitely a beautiful view and a lot to be thankful for. I’m so jealous that you get to go for walks with Joe and look at such pretty scenery 🙂

    Thank goodness for baby naps! It’s so hard to be a baby really. All those new things to learn and absorb. I remind myself this all the time when Julia gets fussy for no apparent reason. But, it’s so hard to not get frustrated when you can’t help them.

    And, what a gorgeous view!
