Simple, Sleepy Gratitude {Mindful Mothering Mondays}

How to find a poignant start for a post when I'm so sleep-deprived that I can hardly put two thoughts together?

In following the lead of our Mindful Mothering Monday hostess, Lydia, I am "offering up gratitude for this life, this labor of love, this moment in time":
  • For our new addition;
  • For a sweet Moose who is absolutely enamored with his baby sister, despite the fact that she took us away from him for nearly a week and has been behind more than a few "wait just a minute, Honey" moments since we returned home last Thursday;
  • For a little technological distraction for our sweet, patient Moose
  • For friends and family who have brought us enough food so that I don't have to think about cooking until next week;
  • For the extra day to the weekend and an extra day for Daddy Moose to be home with us before work beckons;
  • And for coffee - which I'm going to go make now.
With thanks, always, to Lydia for hosting an inspirational start to the week!


  1. Congratulations on your new addition! Glad big brother is loving his new sibling and he will be fine. Just wait a few years and they will be each other's best friends!

  2. I feel like I'm always telling my Spud "just a minute" now that new baby has been here a few months. They are so patient, though!

    Get as much sleep as you can, and what a blessing those meals are!

  3. <3 Oh precious new addition! I am so glad that you are being properly cared for by your friends and community. Those meals just help so much, don't they? A wonderful blessing! Thanks for coming by!

  4. A wonderful list, especially those meals.
