6 out of 23 is not a great ratio

On the 22nd day of the month I have slept in my own bed for six nights.  I am absolutely running on empty and trying to give my kids the love and reassurance they need right now.  E is gone on his third trip in as many weeks and it's just been a rough month.  I need to get my house in order, get some sleep and feel like myself again before I can be the brilliant writer that I usually am.  Forgive me, please.

When I'm feeling like this I force myself to find something to be truly thankful for and smile about. I know there are a million, but sometimes they just seem to be buried under dishes and laundry!!

This photo was taken yesterday in Phoenix at a Padres Spring Training Game.  My kids were sweaty and smelled like sunflower seeds.  E was happy to be watching baseball and spending time with his family.  He is the greatest Dad EVER and lights me up when I see him with our babies.  My heart smiles and my spirit soars when I see them all so happy and REAL.



I hope your heart is smiling tonight, too. - xoxo, Mrs. Montoya
