Today was a good day. Not because anything amazing happened. In fact the events were very ordinary. The difference? I felt great! Sometimes it takes returning to normal to realize just how sick you were before. After months of morning sickness, and then a long holiday illness, I had forgotten how it felt to be healthy. Today I remembered, and it was glorious.
I went into the office today, and gladly. It was good to be out of the house. No, great. I didn't mind the walk down Battery Street, instead dare I say it, I had a spring in my step! In fact I stopped at the bagel shop, and I believe a male customer actually flirted with me. Hey I was wearing a big jacket, and I have the pregnancy glow after all. It's possible. Don't laugh.
I made small talk with strangers all day. I was efficient at work and I had energy to spare when I returned home. For the first time in months I felt like I was actually a good mom. I listened to my kids. I enjoyed them. I read them stories. I was patient. I remembered why I liked being a mom.
Life is good.
