We have had a bunch of random and weighty things come at us the past few days. It's easy to get bogged down by such things. But, being the "glass is half full" gal that I am, I also like to remember the positive in the midst of it all. So here it goes.

Our power went out...but we still had hot water. Woohoo! And, Ian still managed to make us coffee!

I spent about an hour cuddled up reading to the older kids and it was pure bliss.

I went on a Target run with three kids in tow and not one of them threw a fit when I said they couldn't get anything. This is like a miracle folks, an actual miracle.

I tried vegan doughnuts for the first time and was pleasantly surprised by how tasty they were.

Isla got a whole glob of knock off silly putty stuck in her hair. For a bit there, I honestly thought we were just going to have to cut it out, and it was in the front of her hair. Thankfully, conditioner to the rescue, I got it out.

I went thrifting KID FREE and came home with a huge haul. DOUBLE WIN!

The older (more mature?) I get, the more self aware I become. I have become so much more aware of how situations out of my control affect my mood. I really am trying to work on it because I want to be the best mom I can be and don't want what I can't change to spill over into a bad day for my kids. Especially since, so often these things aren't necessarily directly related to me. It may be something going on with a family member or friend. I really have realized how much weight I put on those situations, when I need to really watch and guard how they affect my own family.

There's my two cents for the day - focus on the positive and don't let things you can't control ruin your mood, thus ruin your day.
