Yesterday was a bad day. I was a YELLING Mom. I was an IMPATIENT Mom. I was a CRANKY Mom. Yuck. It was Yucky. For everybody.

Today, I was done feeling sorry for myself. Today, I focused on the good. Today, I focused on what was right in my world, rather than what's wrong.

I decided today would be a good day to take them out and snap some pictures of them. Snap. Snap. Snap. I snapped over 200 pictures and I SNAPPED right out of my funk.

Looking through that camera, I was removed just enough to realize some things:

:That they always listen to, talk to, and confide in each other.

:That they always like to be silly together. The sillier the better. Life is just that simple.

:They always giggle and laugh together. They make each other happy. They are siblings, and they will always have a history and a life to share.

:..... and one day, a day that will come sooner than I think, they will grow up, and move away, and our lives will change. Change is good, but for the time being, I learned I need to get over myself and enjoy the little moments in life more often.

xoxo Cannon and Harper. Mamma loves you.

I hate mom days like that. I have them too, of course. They're ugly and I try to sweep them under the rug. Instead, you're right - I need to get over myself too. Your post brought tears to my eyes! You are wonderful, Piper, and you have such a beautiful family. I love you!

I think we ALL have those days, but the fact that you can "get over" it. I love that they have each other and always will! xoxo
