My Pick Me Up

I’ve been having a rough couple of weeks. Nothing seems to be going right at home or work. I know in my heart that writing makes me feel better, but I can’t help but stop writing completely when I’m feeling down. Then I start feeling down about not writing, which makes me feel even down-er. It’s pretty much a downward spiral (HA!) from there.

Ella is incredibly tuned into my feelings. She has this knack for knowing when mommy needs a cuddle or an “I love you”. It’s like she not only fills my heart entirely, but she feels it entirely too.

So I wasn’t surprised when out of the blue a few nights ago, she walked up to me and handed me the sweetest note in the world.


This note pulled me out from the depths of my funk. It made me laugh and cry and give her a lot of chocolate. It made everything not so down anymore and made me thankful just to be her mom. And that? That turned out to be just the pick me up that I needed.

Happy Friday loves!

    I love this. I hope your move has a trickle down effect on everything else and that you are able to shake off the funk. Kisses to Ella!
