Perfect?!

It is perfect for you at this time. Words from a teacher I say often.
I don't think truer words have ever been spoken.
 Life is not perfect, their are messes, unmade beds and fits. 
Bumped lips and arguments. There are also bedtime snuggles, clean up parties, lunch dates, dancing in the living room and Bernstein bear movie nights. There is food in the fridge, pantry and our belly's. Fun plates to eat off of, beds to sleep in, church families who really care. Coloring pages, facebook messages just to say I miss you. Baby showers to plan, two to be exact. In three more months new lives to cuddle. Seven year anniversary's coming up with no itches in sight. Holiday's and birthdays. Sure their is work, not so fun days, family drama you wish you could wish away.
 Right now, right this moment. We are doing the best we can to make this little family of ours succeed. Some days we have to remember to hold hands. Some days we have to remember to breathe. Most days we are thankful and half glass full. So cheers, take a minute and sit on the thankful seat. You can always try and keep up with the Jones or want for more but, in the process you miss this time that is perfect for you right at this moment. 
Don't miss the blessings of today wishing for better tomorrows.
 I am learning this lesson daily.

Very very true, and something I need to remember more. Sounds like a lot of exciting things are in store, but I hope all moments leading up to those things are exciting too!

looks like a lot of people (including myself) could use this right now. You inspire me to be more of a glass-half-full person. I love you.
