I’m grumpy. There’s no reason I should be grumpy, but I am. It feels ridiculous to be grumpy and write a Celebrate This Week. Still, this is the truth of the matter.
It is also truth that my celebrations aren’t dependent on my moods.
Jay has a birthday.
Steph is super excited about a sleep over she’s going to.
There’s a cub scout who can barely sleep because The Pinewood Derby is in the morning.
Hannah is glad track season has officially started.
Andy is home from a business trip.
Kate plays fetch. (This I love.)
The dishwasher is running.
The washing machine is churning.
The kids are reading.
And me, I’m not grumpy anymore.
This is the truth about celebration. When I pause to celebrate, my mood shifts. It’s impossible to be grateful and grumpy at the same time. The antidote to grumpy is to celebrate.
I’m glad you decided to join me this week. Link your celebrations below.
