A good day

print via

Today is full of possibility, and I am content.  The weekend was lovely.  I spent time with the people I love most.  I enjoyed the eggs and hunts and baskets side of things on Saturday, and Sunday was a day for worship and family. 

I am realizing that the seeds I planted weeks ago may have just gone in too early, so I'm hoping to sow more this week with dreams of lettuce and peas and onions.

I'm trying to be more productive in my evening hours while the husband is still putting in long work hours.  Last night I did laundry, cleaned bathrooms, scrubbed my kitchen floor, and re-organized the toy closet.  I have a list a mile long of projects waiting, so I'm hoping I can keep up the motivation.  I have a laundry room and more closets in need of some care, spring cleaning tasks that I never seem to get to, and a basement full of treasures for the yard sale I'd like to have someday.  I'm sure I won't run out of things to do any time soon. 

Life is full of good.  There is plenty of bad, but I just don't want to focus on it.  I don't have time to get mired down with the negative.  I want something different for my life.  I have a beautiful family who I'm trying to give my best efforts.  I have a body and mind capable of learning and growing and serving.  I have purpose and conviction.  I'm not sure what else I could want. 

Hope you can find the good in today.  I'll be back soon- lots to share!

I've been having similar feelings lately - I just don't have time for negativity. I want to focus on the positive and surround myself with all things good and uplifting. And there is so much to find!

Hi Christina! Thanks so much for your kind comment. I'm so glad you did comment, because it led me to your darling blog!

I love your thoughts in this post. It's so easy to become discouraged by all of the difficult things that life throws at us, but you're right. There is so much more good in life to see. Your positive attitude is a beautiful thing.
