to the left of the limes…

… to the right of the sour cream…

… on top of the butter…

It’s easy to get going in my day. It’s easy to not think about what I’m doing and just mow through the routine.After all… I do what I do… EVERY DAY. Sometimes… scratch that…often… I forget to pay attention and find joy in the little things. I need to change that. I want to find joy… often… more than often…in every moment.

The other day… I opened the fridge, with a  look that resembled something like a scowl on my face… thinking… “ahhh… I didn’t plan well for dinner and now it’s time to make magic happen (at 5:00… ok 5:30) and feed 5 people. Grrrr….” 

So the fridge was swung open and… POP! A little birdy was in my fridge. Propped up just at eye level. He kind of caught me off guard. And then I noticed a little purple Play-doh… heart(?)… anyways.. they were little gifts from my girls. They thought they would make me smile. And they did.

I don’t remember what we had for dinner that night. But I know I ended up preparing it with less of a scowl on my face…. something that may have resembled… a… smile.

Days later… my little Play-doh creations are still happily chilling in the fridge… waiting to make me smile every time I open the door.
