#92 The Thoughtfulness of My Daughter
Anya is so thoughtful and she shows it in so many little ways. As I was folding the laundry she was in the kitchen and I asked if she could grab me a bottle of water. I was wondering what was taking longer than normal, when I came back there was a tray with water and snacks. Talk about a happy momma!

Day #91 Being Present with My Sweet Girl
Kids know if you are present when you are with them or if you are drifting off. Yesterday, Anya was off of school so I spent some time being 100% present with her. We made little cakes and cookies for her dolls and it was so nice to just enjoy the moment and not think about anything else.

Day #90 Volunteering for Anya’s Field Trip to the Farm
Anya and her classmates went to the farm on a field trip and I volunteered to drive a few of them in my car. We all had a ball. Funny thing was in the morning Anya said, “I may want to ride with my friends in the van.” Really! I thought, ok that’s cool. But, when I got there her teacher assigned Anya and 2 of her friends to ride in my car. Let’s just say we sang, ate popcorn, and they got honey sticks (a personal treat from me) well by the end they were saying it was the best field trip ever although it rained and was freezing! They even asked if they could ride with me every field trip and Anya agreed! Vindication is good. LOL. Afterward Anya tld me I was the best mom ever and that made my heart burst!

Day #89 Anya’s Party!
Anya had her party last Sunday with around 20 kids! It was so much fun and although it was a lot of work it made me happy because I know I’m creating good memories for her and hopefully a few for her friends. It was fun adding the small personal touches and enjoying an afternoon just being silly!

Day #88 of 100 Days of Happiness

Day #88 is Taking a Moment to Admire Change
So, I’m behind in my 100 days of happiness, so bear with me. Life is crazy busy, but I’ll just post a few happy moments in the past week and then finish it up. In the midst of all the chaos it was nice to take time on Thursday to walk and just admire the beautiful changes in the season. This is a moment that left me smiling and breathing in the present.

#83 of 100 Days of Happiness

#83 is Books that Teach our Kids About God
I love that there are authors out there who are trying to create books that help children learn about God! This makes me happy in a world that dumps so much junk on our kids that can pollute their mind their are people who are being countercultural! I love these books by Graham Blanchard!
