Find something small to add a little happiness to your life today – a basket of leaves on the table, a new candle to burn in the evening while you cook dinner, or some nuts piled in a basket. It doesn’t take much to add a little joy to our days and beauty to our lives. I think I’ll have the girls gather some leaves and berries to make a centerpiece for the table today. I am also a huge fan of candles on the dinner table – which could not be easier.
It is easy to get so entrenched in the intensity of mothering a large family that I don’t remember to seek beauty in my life, but this is a simple gift I can give my family. A canning jar filled with candy corn just might be a little inspiration.
Tomorrow we are celebrating Little Man’s third birthday! He is so excited and keeps telling me he wants chocolate cake–except the way he says it is super cute. Then he says, “I not scared to blow candles this time.” Last year he leaned so far forward that he nearly burned himself and I had to quickly pull him back.
Have a wonderful weekend.
