quality of the day

We all started a little slow this morning. Needing to catch up on some sleep and the house needed a bit of attention today.  We wrote a letter, enjoyed computer games, played baseball, vacuumed, and organized. By lunch everyone was feeling a little better but still a few grumps were running about. So we decided a beautiful afternoon need to be enjoyed.  We decided upon a bike ride.

Followed by raking and jumping in the few leaves we have.

The fresh air and activity changed everyone's attitude.  

The night was content. I made my first homemade butternut squash soup, which I thought was divine, but no one else agreed. There was creating and stories. Hugs, laughter and love.  

Some days aren't always what we would like them to be, but only we can decide how we react to it and have the power to change it. 

I leave you with a quote I recently read:

To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts. - Henry David Thoureau

  1. Oh and how you affect the day. Your day, their day and our day. Look at the power and change you have available and how you use it so effectively. It always amazes me how some women think that work outside the home is most important. Just look at what you did today. Congratulations and good job. Love to all, XXXOOO
