As we start the week … I’m finding myself struggling a little bit with the January Blahs. I’ve decided to take some positive action, including forcing some flower bulbs, doing a bit of cleaning and organizing, and making sure I get plenty of mama time to recharge and daydream. There are some great ideas for being the blahs in this post from Confessions of a Homeschooler, too.
Just for fun … I took this quiz after Reading Rainbow linked to it on Twitter: Which Children’s Book Character are You? I was The Giving Tree. Which one are you?
I am thankful … for the opportunity to apologize. I was very cranky this morning (see January Blahs above) and my temper got the best of me. It was humbling, but good soul food, to apologize to my family. If it is a good thing to teach our children about humility and how to sincerely apologize when we mess up (and I think it is) then I’m thankful that my mistake can be used as an example.
