It would be sooooo easy to write a rant about computers breaking down, not finding a babysitter, houseflies, a content management system that makes me weep, the thousand things I need to do and how tired I feel but I can't sleep at night. Yet when it all adds up, it doesn't equal a mother of five fighting cancer or a soldier deployed to Iraq or defaulting on a mortgage. These are real problems. People I know experience this kind of big trouble every day. Perspective, right?
Instead I'm choosing to focus on happy little thoughts.
Inhale. Exhale. Refocus.
The fresh summer smell of laundry I'm folding--just in off the clotheslines.
The songbirds hopping and flitting about our yard in the morning.
P.G. Wodehouse's silly, witty writing.
PTA moms calling me back and agreeing to volunteer this month.
Fourteen years of marriage (today!)--most of it really good.
The Center for Health Environment & Justice's Back to School PVC-Free Guide
Children who play nicely together.
Eating tomatoes and peas in the garden under the hot sun.
Spill it reader, what's your happy little thought today?
