I want to thank everyone who took the time to send an email, text, or comment to my recent homeschooling confession. Your support and thoughtful words mean a lot to me.
In responding to one of the emails I received, I randomly invited a friend to spend today keeping her eye out for a pleasant surprise. I said I would do the same. Just to make a game out of paying attention to moments of joy that may be given to us in the midst of our challenges. It can be so easy to focus on what is giving us difficulty that we can sort of lose our good cheer, you know?
I’m going to go through this day with my eyes wide open for the gifts of the day. No idea what I will find. Consider yourself invited to join in on the game. As we seek these moments, we will do well to keep our ears open for how we can pour goodness into someone else’s day as well.
Smiles for your day!
