Last night I got back home about 5 hours later than expected. My flight was super delayed and well, I was running on four hours of sleep from the night before and exhausted from a busy day planning Momday. However, I was sitting in the airport, exhausted, a little grumpy and sad missing my baby, but overall I was grateful. I was grateful my flight had been delayed. Our previous plane had mechanical problems and they got us a new plane, which meant that we were safe. Who knows what would have happened, but I was just so grateful that they caught the problem and were able to get us on a different plane within the same night. How incredible? Life is just too short to hold grudges and get worked up about little things. And this year, I’m trying really hard to look at the positives, the blessings, rather than the negatives.
So when I woke up this morning, you know all crusty eyed and groggy, I was happy. My sweet baby girl’s smiling face was right in my bubble and it was the best feeling in the world. God is good. Don’t get me wrong, life is filled with tons of trials. Marcus and I are literally facing a huge one right now, but it’s those little things that make it all worth it.

So today will be good and today I’m grateful, to be a Mom, to be alive and for Hello Fresh. Yep, I just said that and I’m jumping to it because it honestly made something just a little easier, a little smoother on this especially stressful and exhausting day. I’ve been working so hard all day, have mega deadlines, had to host a church activity, my house is a mess and well, Mom duties don’t stop between any of that. So to be able to be able to just pull out a box with every little thing needed for dinner in it was well, a pretty good friggin’ feeling. All you have to do is follow the instructions, prep it really quick and then cook it. It took me 20 minutes to make a really good and healthy 😉 meal! Plus, could you die over these pictures? I mean, don’t get me wrong this sweet girl of mine is sassier than sassy, but she was just the sweetest little helper when we were cooking. She held my hand almost the entire time, kept giving me hugs and would just sit there chowing down on her cookie while I prepped everything. She’s kind of my favorite and speaking of all the things I’m grateful for–her, I’m SO grateful for her.
I want everyone to have Hello Fresh, literally–ALL THE HELLO FRESH FOR EVERYONE! So use the code “POSITIVELY35” and you’ll get $35 off your first box. BOOM!
A big thanks to Hello Fresh for sponsoring this post!
