Morning Thought

I can't believe that almost a year has passed since my husband and I had our son! Last year this time I was sitting with a big belly...waiting for my last day of work to approach, anxious to see my new baby boy! I don't know about most people, but I have been told that I am too hard on myself. I am the type of person that feels like I need to be always working towards something/accomplishing something. Not really allowing myself to just rest and take in life. I know that this personality trait is not all bad. I just feel like I have goals that I really want to accomplish. I also believe that as you get older.. you should also get better! But then you are left with the question..."What is better?" We each have to judge that for ourselves.

So my son will be 1 year old on the 18th of Dec., and on that special day he and I will be flying to TX to meet the family for Christmas! On this trip, I plan to take in every moment and just relax and enjoy. I feel like I am still learning about my family and my roots, and now that I have a child...I want to be able to share with him (as well as our future kids) about the family heritage that they come from. I know that my husband feels the same (He is from Cambodia). I consider my life and my family to be such a special gift from God. I will enjoy this Holiday!

I will not be too hard on myself today...and I will enjoy this day!
