Happy Monday!

I've been bogged down in the mire of every day life.  Stressed to the max.  Life with 3 kids can be crazy, and this spring is proving no exception.  In fact, things just keep getting crazier.  And I have felt a little overwhelmed.

My big idea during the Christmas holiday was to find one thing each day that made me happy, for whatever reason, and allow myself to enjoy those little things.  And the holiday was smooth sailing.  In fact, I can say it was probably my happiest holiday in a long time.  That's not to say there was no stress...but it was lessened.

My goal with this blog, ultimately, is for my children to read it one day and get to experience their lives through their mother's eyes -- the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Because reality is ugly sometimes.  I also want them to understand a little more about me in the end...my joys, my heartaches, my personality, my inspirations, my ideas, lessons I want them to learn, how proud I am of them, how much I love them.  So, this quest for focusing on little happy things is important for them too.

Each week, I will focus on one little thing that makes me happy.  What better day than Monday?  Because in the end, the little things can bring us as much joy as the big things.

Today, my happy Monday is this picture.

Will's first Easter
Find happy today!
