Let's Find the Good

The past few weeks (and longer if you consider that K still has her headache that started back in October) have, well, pretty much sucked in general. There have been lots of tears shed at home, at school, at church....

However, I feel when things in your world get this bad, that you have 2 choices: let the evil take over your heart or fight back with anything positive. I have always been a fighter, therefore, I will share with you some little things that made me smile in the past few weeks.

The Kindergartners singing their Christmas Jingle Friday morning.

The hugs I got from those beautiful singers.

R putting all her bears, snowmen and Santa to bed at a party last night.

My nephew visiting this weekend.

Counting 5 Santa hats on 3rd and 4th grade boys on the playground on Friday.

Christmas lights.

The smiles I get from those Kindergartners when I see them anywhere other than school. They are constantly surprised to see me out at church or the grocery store, etc...

Christmas cards.

May you find some joy in your neck of the woods this week, no matter how small it is. That is to say, while never forgetting the town of Newtown, CT.

Amen, my friend. Thanks for the cute pics. Hope K feels better soon.

I completely agree with you! THIS is how I'm choosing to deal with this tragedy. I'm choosing to find all of the good that I have and be amazingly thankful for it!
