Day 248: A Series of Fortunate Events

So, there have been a few "issues" going on with our family.  I'm not sure if anyone is really aware of them besides me, but I'm the mommy, so it's normal for me to evaluate the different status of relationships and whatnot--right?

Anyway, so I'll save you the long story, but a bunch of things happened this morning that led me to do different things than I normally do (I have a pretty solid morning routine) and the final outcome was that I ended up borrowing a book from the library called Raising Happiness.  I haven't read a ton of it, but already it has answered, or alluded to future discussions in the book that will help me resolve all of the things that have been bothering me with family relationships of late.  Plus, it has great ideas for helping me to capture even more Joyful Moments every day!  Sweet!

So, finding that book was today's Joyful Moment.  And knowing that I was definitely divinely guided to it made the Moment that much more Joyful.

And now for some catch up.  The photos I wanted to share with you over the last few days:

Baby B playing with his tootsies!

My Vibram FiveFingers--love them!

My Halloween wreath.  HH thinks I should add something orange to it because it can't be Halloween-y without orange.  But I kind of like it this way.  Although, maybe an orange door would be nice to really make it all *pop* out better.  The thing in the middle says "scary", by the way.  It doesn't show up that well in this photo.  I'm not positive I'm finished with it.  But I like having something creepy on the door.  It makes me happy.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments from following one unexpected decision to another!

I like your spooky wreath. You should do that for a craft night.

I am feeling tons of joy; my brother and his wife are staying at our home while they put their son in the MTC tomorrow for his mission to Morristown New Jersey. I love having family visit!
