I am trying to make sure I notice the good things in each day, even if they are only small things, because often it is the small things that make me happy.
Small things like my four year old suddenly being interested in writing letters.
Small things like mastering a donut bun a ten days before my girls’ ballet exam.
Small things like my unwell big girl delighting in showing her little brother the vinegar and bicarb magic.
Small things like ordering seeds for the garden and turning in the winter cover crop with the tractor.
Small things like chocolate mug puddings after swimming lessons.
Small things like daffodils, and sunshine.
Small things like spring… that always comes right when I think I never will.
Small things like these great links…
- 101 Kids Activities That are the Bestest Funnest Ever by Holly and Rachel from the Kids Activities Blog is now available at Australian book sellers, like Booktopia!
- This perspective on FOMO (fear of missing out) is especially timely for me this weekend as I try to stay grounded in the goodness I have hear at home and not long to be at a blogging conference that ‘everyone else’ has gone to.
- Wabi-sabi. I shared this on my facebook page but I am sharing it here again because I think this could be the perspective shift so many of us seek. Read Glenon’s blog at Momastry, it’s full of this kind of awesomeness.
- Hard conversations… boy this one hit home.
What’s making you happy this week?
