First off, some clarification--HH called Sweet P "lobster baby" because she turned red every time she screamed like that.
Okay, so I got to take cookies into Sweet P's Kindergarten class today. They were supposed to be cupcakes, but it's a long story about why they didn't work out and it's starting to feel like I'll never make it to bed tonight and I really need to make it to bed tonight because the whole house is sick. Suffice it to say, I brought cookies and everyone was happy.
And the teacher invited me to stay for a bit, so I got to watch Sweet P in action. They were learning how to count by 10's. I don't remember learning that in Kindergarten, but this class is. And it was so great watching Sweet P learn and grasp new concepts. She's amazing.
And it was a Joyful Moment.
And then I had another Joyful Moment tonight when I ran a silly errand, only to completely forget the whole point of the errand at home (a coupon that expires tonight). I started to be bugged with myself, but then realized that I had seemed to bring quite a bit of comfort to the cashier through the conversation we shared. And I began to think that maybe my time and effort had not been a waste after all. And it turned into a Joyful Moment.
Plus, I figured another way to simplify my life (my main focus the last week)--I'm cutting CVS out of my life. At least for the next little while. It just isn't worth it.
I feel better.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments that make you feel better!
