Do you ever have days when a few things happen to make you sad and then the day just gets more sad with everything you do? Today was turning out to be that day for me.
-I found out the place we wanted to go Apple Picking this weekend is now closed for the season due to freezing rain. It was the only apple picking place I could find close by (but still a 2 hour drive away). Every year I used to take my nanny kids back in Ontario apple picking and dream about taking my own kids. It’s a silly thing, but I was so excited that now I’m so disappointed.
– I can’t stop thinking about how my entire family went to New York City this weekend to surprise my cousin for her 30th birthday. It just couldn’t work out for us because it’s a far trip and the time spent travelling would have been longer than the time actually in New York. Being far away from everyone is not a happy thing.
– I’m missing my good friends. Because being sad just makes me miss them.
-Then the dreaded spiral: I started thinking that if I lived in ONTARIO, I would still be able to go apple picking this weekend, I would have been able to go to NYC last weekend and I wouldn’t miss my good friends because I would still see them all the time!
And just then at my saddest moment when I was totally centred on my own pity party, I looked at Henry and he smiled at me. It’s impossible to be sad with a smiling baby. I started to focus on how blessed I am to have him. Then my mom called. Aren’t moms just great at cheering you up? Then my best Calgary friend Vanessa text messaged me and my best blog friend Natalie emailed me. And now I feel better. Because if I really think about it, I have nothing to be sad about. Sometimes it’s hard to see the trees and not just the forest.
I hope you are all having a great day!
