The past two weeks that we’ve all been staying home due to the pandemic has been quite… interesting. We have a full house with myself, Elon and Edward.
I can’t tell you that I’m loving every second of it. There are times that by the end of the day, I would feel defeated, guilty and tired of the whole situation. But I know that this is our reality for the next more days, or weeks even.
So instead of sulking, we are shifting our focus on the positive side of things. Each night before we sleep, Elon and I list 3 things we are grateful for before pray time. Here I am sharing with you some of the things Elon lists down:
I am happy because we played shark together.
I am happy because I hug Mama.
I am grateful because I play I spy.
I am happy because I ate by myself with no help.
I am grateful for mama’s soup. That is the best soup ever! It’s my favourite rice and soup ever!
I am grateful for the chicken Mama cooked for me.
I am happy because I love Mama.
I am happy because I watched so much animals today.
I am grateful I made puzzle with Dada.
Everyday he would list more than 3 things. And even he would call himself out on it and say that he has so much, more than 3 that he is grateful for!
That only reminds me that although times are tough once we focus on the positive and simple things about our current situation, there are so much to be grateful for.
I am grateful that I get to spend time with Elon in every second of his life for the past two weeks. I never miss a waking moment and I get to put him to sleep each night with no rush or anything. I am grateful that I get to have him by my side literally 24/7! I am grateful that we have resources and we are able to stay at home during this pandemic. I am grateful we get to spend family time in the evenings and we get to sit down more for meals as a family. I am grateful that I get to do a job that I love while at home. I am grateful for Elon. I am grateful for the gift of time. I am grateful for the gift of family. And most of all I am grateful for Jesus for sustaining us through this time.
What are you grateful for today?
