After dinner walk

With daylight savings time going on, it is brighter after dinner, bright enough and warm enough to go for a walk with Lil M.

Last night, Lil M and I put on our sweaters and our shoes and went for a 45 minute walk around the neighborhood after dinner.  We ran, we sang, we talked, we saw some ducks, and we met a few new friends who were close to Lil M's age.  It was so refreshing to get out after dinner and just enjoy the outside.  Lil M is so much fun, we sang songs together, we found "yellow lions" and bugs and crunchy leaves.  We also ran on the levy and saw the ducks take their baths.  

I am so very lucky to have such an amazing son!! He really brightens my day, he completes my life!! I am so grateful to have him in my life! To think that the depression I had for over 2 years before we got pregnant would all be worth it.  To think that every single needle that struck my skin, would be worth it.  How when I look back, I never thought that this day would ever come, the day that I would have such a little guy who loved me and looked up to me as much as I love him.

I always look at Lil M and am in awe, of how lucky I am to be his mama! How lucky I am to have such a wonderful child, someone to talk to and teach new things to, someone to explore the world with.

I can't wait for the spring and summer, that means more time for us to play outside after dinner, more time to enjoy the outdoors and explore the area and meet more neighbors.

This year for lent, Lil M and I decided to give up negative and bad people.  We want to have a great 40 days of positive and happy instead of being brought down with drama and negativity. 

This will be a great way to start the year fresh, and also a great way to teach Lil M how to enjoy life and not surround yourself with people who will bring you down.  There are so many disappointments in life, why let people that bring you down constantly and continuously also be there adding to such an unhealthy lifestyle.  You can't chose disappointments in your life, but you can chose the people you surround yourself with!!

Thankfully, we have so much positive support with family (my mom, my brother, my sister, my brother in law, all my aunts, my cousins, their children and all my friends and their kids)!! Lil M is always surrounded with positive, happy people already, people who love him and who will guide him for the better! This will be an easy lent  :)  

I am looking forward to see how these 40 days go :) And also looking forward to seeing how our moods will be different and how we will not let the drama or negativity ruin our day.
