-Another day spent together.
-It was a beautiful day.
-Working together to fill the camping cooler.
-Daddy wasn't hurt in his accident (and it wasn't his fault).
-Friends who make us laugh when all we've been doing is crying.
-Grace (who has been working so very hard on mastering the cartwheel) finally did a gorgeous one at dance class!
And just like that the day didn't look so gloomy anymore. Sure, it's not a day we'd want to repeat anytime soon, but the simple act of naming the good things really helped to end the day on a much happier note than it began. Looking for the good in the midst of the not-so-good has always been soemthing that I have done, but never more so than five years ago when we were going through an extraoridinarily challenging and heartbreaking time. If it wasn't for looking for the good in the midst of the not-so-good or "skimming the cream" (as it's called here) I'm not sure that we would have made it through that time like we did. It's a simple and powerful tool, dear ones, and I am so very glad that it was able to work its magic once again yesterday. xo
