Today whilst feeding our baby there was a knock at the door.
So that I didn’t have to worry about trying to break the vacuum seal the baby had created over my breast, as well as remember to ‘make myself decent’ before opening the door and accidentally greeting whoever stood outside with my bare boob, my husband answered the door.
Luckily it was hubby’s day off and as an added bonus my husband knows me well enough to remember that my chances of accidentally flashing unsuspecting visitors are quite high!
Delivering More Than Just Packages
It was our Postie! Well, one out of the three wonderful posties that we are fortunate enough to call ours.
For the sake of the specifics, and just in case he ever comes across this article, I will mention it’s the one with little ones that have beautifully unique names, who loves his wife so very much that he empathises greatly with her pregnancies and is an all-round-good-guy!
“You are the luckiest guy I know” our Postie said to my hubby as he opened the door, “not only do you have a good number of kids, but you get to have an awesome bike and stuff!”
I think my husband was more than a little taken aback. I’m sure he has never seen it this way. And in roughly twenty words our Postie had delivered far more than a package of new activewear (which I will lounge around the house in pretending to still be a fitness freak), but the absolute truth, and I adore him for it!
Sometimes it takes someone externally looking in to make you truly see how incredibly blessed you are.
I’ve always felt tremendously fortunate in life, but I believe now my husband can feel the depth of our blessings also.
Feel Your Blessings
What more could anyone possibly need than being surrounded by their loved ones, food in their bellies and a place to call home… if you’ve got these things, you’re complete and if you’ve got even more like a job and materialistic things, then really, you’ve got it all!
Gosh we’ve got a Postie who really should have been a Wellness Coach, and we are grateful for his wise words and kind heart!
Stop Worrying About What You’re Missing Out On!
Sometimes you’re so busy thinking about what you’re missing out on by being a parent that you don’t realise how amazingly lucky you are each and every single day just to have everyone and everything that you do.
Thoughts about experiences that your childless mates are able to enjoy and you feel you’re missing out on can cloud your mind as well as your happiness and make it challenging to just be content with what you’ve got…
A common human flaw that is easy to adjust simply by taking a step back, a deep breath and counting your blessings each and every single day, because we are fortunate, we just need to encourage ourselves to truly feel it!
Thank you Mr. Postman, you are a legend!!!
