Grateful since December 15, 2009
Melissa Mclean gave Anna Calliope peace of mind
When life gets tough, just sit and breathe, and then take the next step. The fog will soon clear up, and you'll be able to see where you're going.
My best friend... together we can go to the most chaotic places with our children, and it seems like a fun (even relaxing!) oasis just because we get to be together.
the high-pitched little hum my 2 year old makes right before he falls asleep.
That when I was expecting to know no one, I ran into a familiar face who made me feel calm.
Watching someone who isn't used to feeling success in a specific domain feel success in that area.
Knowing my little one's hugs can help heal my mom when she needs it.
Having a project I am excited about starting.
Hearing my child belly laugh over funny lyrics to songs.
When unsolicited advice is actually well-intended, well-delivered, and helpful.
The feeling of turning in a big project.
The comfort of my best friends' voices.
Feeling like I am part of a team.
My warm bed.
A safe, fun, peaceful snow day.
That people say "I love you."
The comfort "the routine" can sometimes provide
The confidence gained by learning a new skill.
snowmen and sledding and sleep
Holiday cards with pictures of happy, healthy children.
Fun packages arriving at the door!
A healthy home.
