I Choose

my least favorite politician arrives to speak too close to home
my spring break travel plans have been replaced by paying down debt
the weather has turned cold, windy and snarly
I choose to let the negatives go and focus on the positive

my husband sold his gnome carving

I am enjoying my children's imaginations during car rides
as they watch the light tadpoles (a term they coined)
dance across the van ceiling.

I am finishing a wonderful book about acceptance of a less than perfect home.
"A Perfectly Kept House is the Sign of A Misspent Life"  by Mary Randolph

I am remembering the Lego Duplo tower Baby and I built

to play peek-a-boo

Choosing the positive.
Doesn't that feel better?
Happy Friday to you!
May your weekend be full of positive moments.

It is a great gift to be able to seek out the joy in life when we appear to be surrounded by darkness. Great carving too, very talented man is Scott.
