Sometimes I feel like I failed with my day, like I need a redo. I didn’t get all the things done at work I wanted to, I didn’t get all the laundry done, I didn’t find time to workout (ha! I haven’t done this in a couple of years!)- just like I didn’t do enough!  But then, I go pick the boys up from daycare, I am reminded that those things are insignificant to what does matter- that those two boys think I’m the greatest thing in the world.  Luke gets so excited when I walk in his classroom, he jumps around, waves his arms and starts smiling and laughing.  Jack drops whatever he is doing, runs to me screaming “MAMA!”  He tells anyone who will listen, “that’s my mama!”as he hugs me tight and gets a little possessive if the other kids get too close to me.

All of a sudden, those other things that I didn’t do absolutely do not matter.  Laundry, work, chores- it will always be there.  I gave it all up tonight to enjoy my boys. Luke was in a fantastic mood- full of happiness, laughs, giggles and play. Jack played with Luke, played with his cars and went to bed without a fight.  Maybe I didn’t fail today after all…
