Things That Make Me Smile…

Is the small things in life, the unexpected ones, the ones that bring the most joy into my life.  It is in the quiet of my days, the time when I am all alone, that I can slow down enough to see God’s amazingness.  This morning, as I am driving the children to school, I noticed my flowers were very thirsty!  So, I came home, brought them down from the hooks, and aligned them to water them.  I water the first hanging basket and I could not help but admire the beautiful color, the bright pink petals of my impatiens…so perfect!  Then I moved to the second hanging basket and I came to a halt…

See the cute bird nest? Oh my Lord, that little nest, so perfectly put together brought a big smile to my face.  I watered the flower, try not to disturb the nest, I do hope that the bird comes back to the little nest it patiently built.

I’ve been having a very not-so-nice week with my daughter. We are constantly bumping heads, but since the move, it seems that is coming full force.  I am a very impatient person, very temperamental, so is very difficult for me to recognize that is just a phase and that all will calm down…at some point! I am, however, very lucky to have my Jason and my JJ, they calm me down, they love me a ton, and they like showing their love for me on a daily basis.  I know the move was especially difficult for my baby girl, I know she misses her friends, her choir, even the academics at her previous school.  All I can do is pray, hope, and wait…wait for things to calm down with her, and do my best to stay calm (as much as possible!).

Take a deep breath, look around you, and enjoy the simplicity of life, the blessings sent your way, lend a hand and pay it forward…live, love, laugh…

Always,
