Small Accomplishments-Big Happy

Good night.
We had a wonderful time at my cousin's birthday party, and even though we got home at 11 p.m., I stayed up to start another cubic yard of laundry, load and start the dishwasher, clear the dining table, take out the garbage and remove 1 surface layer of accumulated debris treasures. And I want to remember that today was good... that a little effort counts, that I would still rather work on another quilt than scrub grout or curl my eyelashes, and that my children are a joy. I want to remember that in spite of stress and uphill climbs, there are moments, hours, and days that I would not trade for anything. I think I may be a bit intoxicated... I took in quite a bit of laughter, some tamales, a little cake, and a lot of family time.

Good night.

I am glad you had a nice day today. It is also nice to know I am not the only one doing laundry at midnight (or thereabouts). I do hope you have a good night.

I love those intoxicating moments where you think life couldnt be any better. It sure can help carry you through moments where you dont think it could get any worse. So, here to your great day!!! And, I guess, to laundry that needs to get done. By someone and I guess that is you. And me here. I hope you have many more great days!!!

Life is good, isn't it? Most of the time anyway . . . LOL

No matter what I'd rather be doing, I'm still grateful for the laundry and dirty grout!

I dreamt about you last night! Wild eh!!

Great to hear about the joy you partook in. I'm learning, hourly, to cherish the joy vs hold onto the frustrating fluff. xo
