Postlessly Devoted to Her

I can hardly believe that I let Thanksgiving pass without posting on this blog.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t have anything to be thankful for.  I do, I do! – I just said that in my best Tweety impression. 

For one, I’m extremely grateful for this spanking pair of office pants (I’m not sure what they’re called), and the fact that I fit nicely into it (my butt is getting smaller with each passing day, I guess).

The most important thing I’m thankful for is the time I was able to spend with my daughter the past week, and weekend.  Though she was spotty all over from chicken pox, it has proven to be a silver lining on my cloud, as I got to have her for the weekend.  Normally, her dad would pick her up on a Friday afternoon and bring her back to me on Sunday.  Luckily, this weekend was a welcome exception. 

One of the reasons I hardly touched my computer last week was I wanted to devote every free time I had with my daughter.  After a long, dreary day at work, all I looked forward to was to come home and catch Phineas and Ferb with her. 

Inspired by a post from a blogger friend, Sam of What Little Things, I made a conscious decision to stop and smell the roses.  Heck, I sniffed the entire garden and stayed awhile.  Her post reminded me to find beauty and solace in the little things life has to offer.

So if I’m without a blog post for a few days, I’m probably dancing my heart out to the Wiggles with my daughter, or perfecting the color of Cinderella’s hair on a coloring book for the nth time.  Moments like these are undeniably priceless.
