It’s the Little Things

Day 19/31

I think it’s important to find the little things in everyday life that make you happy.

Paula Cole

As most of the world, I have been too stressed out this week, and have been dealing with a headache that never seems to end. At the beginning of the week, my husband asked me to order something from Amazon, so I just had to order a little something for myself too. 😉

This afternoon, I was very excited to get a text telling me these two gems had appeared at my door. (My husband’s things came too,) These are my everyday little things that made me happy today. Books. One to help me be a better writer. One to help me learn how to draw. (That could take some doing.)

These made me happy today, and I am counting on them to make me happy in the days ahead. They give me something to look forward to at the end of my “school day.” I don’t want to put my head in the sand, but I would like a little escape from the news, and fears, and stress of this new normal. Books and reading and writing do that for me.

Stay well.

  1. I’m thinking that by next week I might have my students trained so that I don’t have to sit at my computer all day. I already thinking of a couple things to order–it’s just so fun to get something new on your doorstep.

  3. I totally agree with you. It is nice to have a distraction at the end of our virtual school day. Now, you have a distraction that is much better than the news and Facebook.:) I’ve been reading like crazy and loving it. Thank you for the post.
