Today was a great day. On the one hand, I feel like I have so much to feel stressed about right now, and a lot of times I do. But today, I realized how blessed I am. After Ashlyn woke up from her nap, we snuggled in the rocking chair, while I read Brown Bear, Brown Bear over and over. Later, I pulled the sled out to go on a walk. At first, Ashlyn ran around the room, laughing, then she ran to sit in the sled. She got kind of mad when I made her get out to put on her snowsuit. She laughed as we walked outside. It was a beautiful day, and I realized that, if I was teaching, I would miss so many of these times. Eventually, Ashlyn won't want to sit in my lap and have me read to her. I hate to miss a single minute of that.
