Day 50: Recent Blessings

Screen Shot 2018-07-17 at 10.20.14 AM

I am not feeling much for this prompt. However, I am following the posts from TeachersWrite this summer, and this was the prompt from last Tuesday by Traci Sorell.  I was to reflect on recent struggles and blessings and choose one to write about. I am going to focus on my blessings.

Recent blessings:

  • New baby
  • Family and friends visiting
  • Home-cooked meals
  • Chicken salad sandwiches
  • Kimchi fried rice
  • Sleeping with the window open
  • Rainy day
  • Finally having time to read the long books on my to-read list
  • Sleeping on my back
  • Lying on my stomach
  • My husband’s paternity leave
  • Time to slow down
  • Spending time with my husband in the middle of the day
  • Reading through my open tabs in my browser
  • Getting my writing done before 10 PM
  • Starting a new book
  • Taking a shower every day
  • Making plans with friends
  • Receiving cards from unexpected people
  • Care packages
  • Walking up and down the apartment stairs on my own

Simple pleasures

Having lunch with my husband

In the middle of the workweek

Watching him care for our new baby

Changing diapers, coddling, reading, talking to

Sharing these experiences, both the good and the bad

Problem solving together

Thankful for paternity leave
