Put on a Happy Face

Wednesday, March 14, 2007

In an effort to re-focus on my positive attitude, I thought it would be wise to make a list of the top five things about today. (I think I can find five.)

  1. Noah DID NOT poop in his underwear today. (This always makes the morning better.)
  2. We did a cute Noah's Ark craft using sticky-backed shaped foam, and it was a perfect opportunity to share the amazing story of how God saved his faithful servant and the all the animals during the flood. Jude and Noah loved the craft, and I think Jude started to "get it" a lot more than he ever has before. (They've heard the story lots, thanks to its popularity in children's Bible books and videos.)
  3. Jabin has the cutest giggle EVER. I should try and record it and put a sound byte up here. And he LOVES to be tickled.
  4. Jude loves to be a big helper, and feels very important when he does, so this makes my life easier as far as table setting, etc., is concerned. He often volunteers instead of having to be asked to set the table. (Although today he had to be asked for every meal, he did do two of them cheerfully!)
  5. As useless as I felt today, I still managed to maintain a clean kitchen, vacuum half my house, and fold some laundry, as well as doing "school" and a craft with the kids and reading a book with Jabin. I guess today wasn't a total write-off after all.
There. I feel better already. But that doesn't mean I'm not going to go scrapbook for a half-hour before bed, still. I do have one more:

  • Playing through some great old songs in one of my favourite Reader's Digest Songbook collections, which I haven't done for ages. I really must remember to de-stress like this more often. Music does soothe the savage beast, as well as the gloomy and frazzled spirit, apparently.

Happy Wednesday, friends. How was your day?

  1. Good to hear about your day! :)

    The only positive I have for yesterday is that I survived it! It was a day of moving into my new apartment which started off with my twisting my ankle nastily as I stepped in through the front door. The end of the day found Ace with a swollen ankle, red and swollen palms and fingers, aching muscles and bruised and swollen muscles around her thumb. Woohoo! None of this for a few months now (until I move again)

  2. That's m'girl!! And remember, there IS light at the end of the tunnell ....they WILL grow up, they WILL move away....and then you'll wish they were closer so you could help with the grandkids more often!!

  3. It wasn't a write-off at all! The love you put into those boys is a full-time job, that is for certain. Have you ever heard of the song Just Another Day in Paradise?

    The kids screaming, phone ringing
    Dog barking at the mailman bringing
    That stack of bills - overdue
    Good morning baby, how are you?
    Got a half hour, quick shower
    Take a drink of milk but the milk's gone sour
    My funny face makes you laugh
    Twist the top on and I put it back
    There goes the washing machine
    Baby, don't kick it.
    I promise I'll fix it
    Long about a million other things

    Well, it's ok. It's so nice
    It's just another day in paradise
    Well, there's no place that
    I'd rather be
    Well, it's two hearts
    And one dream
    I wouldn't trade it for anything
    And I ask the Lord every night
    For just another day in paradise.

    YES, it's country, I know (what an influence that man has had on me) but don't you just love the words?
