A while back my daughter, Courtney, had a series of posts on Facebook called "30 Days of Happiness." These are short reminders of the beautiful little things life has to offer, if we just look for them. Court started it up again this week, and I just have to share.
Courtney Blackwell's 30 Days of Happiness, Day 1:
been feeling pretty down lately. It is amazing how in a blink of an
eye, your whole entire being can change. Just. Like. That. But this
morning, my sweet little 2-year-old filled my heart with so much
happiness; it literally felt like it might explode. It was the type of
joy I have been craving lately.
All morning, Hazel wore her "baby" Toni (previously known as Tony) in a
mama-made dolly sling. The way she kissed Toni and how she rubbed her
head gently was just so sweet. She walked around the house with Toni,
sang to her and hugged her. Watching Hazel's mama skills was absolutely
heartwarming. And then I realized something. Wow, she is nurturing
her baby the only way she knows how to. By imitating, well, her mama.
I have never felt so proud of myself.
morning, Hazel unknowingly reminded me how blessed I am to have raised
such a gentle little soul. She reminded me that even when life is
crappy, there is much more goodness to it. Her simple gestures have
prompted me to remember to live in the current moment and make it
exactly how I want it to be.
Is Hazel an earth angel? I think so.
Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to LOVE EVERY MINUTE!
