Epiphanies....wonderful things

This morning I woke up tired, with a headache, just wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin' that maybe today would be the day I'd go into labor. And I wasn't being very pleasant. I was irritable and cranky and every little thing was frustrating me. I went about this way for a good hour, maybe 2 (the hubs would probably say 2...he's a very very patient man). Then, as I was taking a shower (because all of my good thoughts come in the shower...the one and only time I am truly alone all day long) I had this epiphany:

Do I really want to go about the next few days, the LAST few days of my {final} pregnancy, in a grumpy mood? Quick to anger? Easily frustrated? Cranky? Unhappy? Do I really want to do that to myself? Really???

The answer: No. I don't want to do that to myself. And I don't want to do that to my sons or the hubs either. I don't have complete control over this situation and how I'm physically feeling, but I do have complete control over how I'm mentally feeling and how I decide to react to the way I am physically feeling.

So, that was my epiphany. I'm not going to spend my last few days as a mother of 2 being grumpy and whiny. I can't promise I won't have grumpy and whiny moments, but I'll try to keep them short and remember why I even wrote this blog post in the first place =)

This is the epitome of my silly fam. We have so much fun together

Silly fam love. Love. Love. Love.
