Giving Thanks

It’s the little moments in life that are so special. Today was no exception and two things happened that just put a smile on my face. 

Logan and I have been playing a new game. I have been working with Logan on making eye contact when he wants to speak or when another person has something to say to him. One method I am doing is to say, “Logan, look at Mommy.” When he doesI say, “I love you,” very softly and give him a little kiss. Logan is doing the same. He has the sweetest, softest little voice when he says, “Mommy, look at me. I wuv you.”

The next unexpected moment was tonight while Chris and I were putting Logan to bed. Each night after bath, we listen to In Search of Goodnight…an excellent CD from the Pottery Barn. Chris puts on Logan’s lotion and I brush his teeth while we talk about what a good day he’s had, recounting all the proud moments. Tonight when I went in to do the brushing, Chris bent over and gave me a surprise kiss on the cheek. It was so sweet and Logan sleepily looked up, smiled, and said, “Daddy’s giving Momma a kiss on cheek.” I love the fact the three of us are so happy together and that Logan can tell how much his parents love him and each other.

This was one of those days that reminds me how good life really is. Not in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would have such a wonderful life full of love and joy.

Today’s workout: Cardio Day. Walk/run through neighborhood with some hill sprints thrown in. 50 min. Tomorrow I start the first week of Advanced Weight Training. Ouch!

    Treasure those moments Corinne when they reach the teenage years it can be difficult and you will want to remember those little moments. If you want a real tear jerker book read “I’ll love you forever” I read that to my oldest son growing up and he repeats it back to me now, even at 20!

    Loving and happy couples make loving and happy children. That’s my feeling when it comes to my family. I’m so thankful too.

    Hi, I'm Corinne

    I lost 100 pounds and get what it is like to be overweight and feel defeated. I did a complete mental and physical transformation and now I teach women how to do the EXACT same thing. You can get started today with the free course.
