31 Days of Gratitude: Day 22

22/12/2021

🌼Sometimes, when I least expect it, I get these little reminders that my son is growing up. They jar my brain a bit. They other day his phone went to voicemail. He had set up his mailbox before his voice broke. I wasn’t expecting to hear his little boy voice and I almost burst into tears.

This evening I walked past the table and saw his wallet next to my car keys and my first thought was: “what man is in the house” and then I realised what I was looking at.

My baby is growing up. I don’t know if I will ever be ready for each milestone. I am however grateful that I do get to witness each one and help him through them too. 🌼

Quotes to live by: Michael A. Singer

“…my personal preferences of like and dislike were not going to guide my life. By surrendering the hold those powerful forces had on me, I was allowing my life to be guided by a much more powerful force, life itself.”

Michael A. Singer (The Surrender Experiment)

Quotes To Live By: George R.R. Martin

“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”
