A Good Day.

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.


  1. THIS is why we have kids! Because some days are like this. That's fabulous!

  2. Awesome! So glad you're feeling better!

  3. That's great, rachie. Now spit three times.

  4. Oh those days can be few and far between :) Glad I clicked over here - it helps to remember that a "good" day is good even when nothing spectacular happened.

  5. so glad you're feeling better these days and that you can enjoy your pregnancy now. (i read your other post too.) isn't it amazing how being sick just affects EVERYTHING? there are days when i have a headache all day... and i'm pretty much convinced the world is coming to an end and i will never have enough time to finish my list and... well, you get it. and then i wake up the next day with no headache and all is well again. being unwell = soooo not good. i really hope the rest of your pregnancy will leave you in good health so you can enjoy your last time being "with child"! ;)
