deep thoughts + a trip to the Hogle Zoo

I have been feeling this overwhelming sense of gratitude the past few days. I have always dreamed of being a stay at home, and now I am living it. I don't always feel good enough for the job, but I love exploring, learning, and watching my children grow.
I missed out on a lot of moments with Savannah while working, and a few with Devin too. It was hard for me to go to work, and I complained to Paul more than I should have.
I talk about going back to work when I have bad days being home. Staying home isn't always easy for me, but I really feel so lucky that I am right here, right now.
I think about all the fun things that I get to take my kids to see and do, and it makes me happy that I have been there...and not at work. Making good childhood memories for my kids is important to me, and I have loved all the adventures we have done together.
Feeling so very thankful today for everything that I have.
