September 19 will mark our 100th celebration! I’m cooking up some ideas for this milestone. Won’t you please invite your friends to join us?
- The kids were at sleep away camp last week. I celebrate the quiet that crackles in an alone house. And now, I celebrated the hustle and bustle of an active home.
- I celebrated everything in its place and a tidy home that stayed that way all day and all night and the next day too. And now, I celebrate the shoes by the steps and the bowling pins at my feet and the pile of Legos and the trains on the dining room table and the sketch pad and pencils at the end of the couch and the books sprinkled all over. I celebrate the stuff that comes from happy, active kids…each finding their own niche.
- I celebrate eating out. Andy and I zipped into town and avoided dishes at home. One night we stopped at the farmer’s market and brought home a bounty of fresh tomatoes and corn on the cob and purple potatoes to make a summer meal with grilled chicken. Another night we ate out with friends. And now, there’s 28 pounds of beef and 21 pounds of chicken ready to be made into 30+ freezer meals today. I celebrating cooking at home.
- I celebrate dictating my own schedule, deciding how I spend my time, and allowing the day to lead me. And now, I celebrate getting to invest in four lives, learning to empower and encourage and support them.
Mostly, though, I celebrate learning to find the joy in the moments of the day. This is what sustains me. Thanks for celebrating along with me!
