Most weeks you take the good with the bad, the happy with the sad, yada - yada - yada. But, some weeks it's so easy to get stuck in the muck, that it seems nearly impossible to recognize the good that's taken place....until you go looking for it. That's my story for this week - it seems that there has been heaps and piles of not so fun stuff (besides the laundry), I'm talkin' 'bout real dog-house days with an abundance of moaning and groaning on the side just to make sure that everyone is miserable. Now that it's Friday, I've decided to lead us out of the darkness and into the light with the "glass half full" march. It's time to turn the beat around right here, right now. And, the best way to get things to start looking up is to change our perspective....to open our eyes to the good and to be grateful. Here's my glass-half-full week:
Thank you, Beauty for Ashes, for this little truth!2. Any time I get to sit down with my sister-in-law and share some laughter and tears over a good glass of wine, it is a blessing. She is one of the greatest gifts in my life. Mostly because she shares her wine. Just kidding! :)
Hootie and the Blowfish ~ Time4. The kids were so exhausted on the way home from Wichita that they passed out into limp lumps of snores and drools. In order to stay awake on the drive, I did what any mom in my situation would do - I busted out my stash of old cd's from the B.C. days (before children) and I rock, rock, rocked all the way home. Thank you Hootie and the Blowfish and Mariah Carey for making it possible.
#1: Well, I don't hate it like I thought I would. (Please, tell me what you really think.)
#2: You look 20 years younger. (Did I look that old?)
#3: Mom, who cares about hair? Can't you see I'm trying to play a game here??
#4: You never get your hair cut, so it will be long again soon anyway.
#5: Wowzers. (Hubby)
Have a great weekend, everyone!!
