I Choose to Smile

This morning we woke up late.  The school bus went by, reminding me that public school had begun, and I still hadn’t gotten my letter of intent off to the school board.  The babies misadventures had me feeling like an old Green Jelly song that my brother loved to act out…so I went on a hunt for things to smile about.  Here are 10.

 1.  Baby prayers.  Every time I put Gideon to bed he says “Thank You Lord, Bebe;” and pats his chest.  This is his own prayer, though, how I thank God for him.


  1.   2.  This sunny face.


 3.  Reading The Hobbit to the boys, and their enjoyment of it.


4.  Caleb, his style and intent dedication to all that he does.

5.  Daniel’s plea of “Pwease Mommy, go find my blanket.  It is lost out side.”

6.  Friend who call from the store, just to see if you need something.

7.  Teaching my children.

8.  Delicious snow peas.

9.  Willing, hard working boys, who know they are helping the family, as they stack firewood for winter.



10.  Last, but far from least:  Baby kisses.  They are so sincer.
