Today, it is so cold outside that school has been canceled. I am happy because I didn't have to get up early, get the kids ready and drag my youngest out in this freezing cold weather. However, I have things I was working on today. Trying to finish my book, returning some phone calls and doing some work on the Internet. As much as I need to work on my stuff, I have decided to finish writing this blog and give my kids 100% attention today. No phone calls, no Internet, no emails just hanging out and enjoying the kids.
Yes, its cold outside and everyone you talk to will complain about the weather. These same people have been living in Michigan their entire life. Its not like winter is new to them! We can either complain or we can make the best of the situation and find something good.. What a great time to just enjoy the family. I don't have to leave and run my kids all over town. I get to stay inside and enjoy the simple things that we sometimes forget to do. Today, I'm going to enjoy laughing with my kids and everything else can wait until tomorrow. What a great lesson for all of us to learn. Is to stop looking at the bad and focus on the good. Maybe you live somewhere warm and the weather is not an issue for you. However, pay attention to the conversations around you and try your hardest not to fall into all the complaining everyone does. Today, find the beauty, the opportunity or the life lessons you are suppose to learn and make the best of the situation because just like the weather here in Michigan, this to shall pass.
Here is a quote that I found and would like to share:
"Love one person, take care of them until you die. You know, raise kids, have a good life, be a good friend and try to be completely who you are. And figure out what you personally love and go after it with everything you've got no matter ho much it takes."
My kids are now all hanging on me while I type. I sometimes feel like a monkey and they are baby monkey even my dogs are staring at me!!!! I hope all of you have a great day today
