Those words hit home under this roof we've created for our family. They sum up the way we've been trying to live, since our beginning.
I crave calm.
And a smooth-as-possible flow to our daily life.
I enjoy simple days. Consistency is a comfort thing to me, high ranking in my values. I'm drawn to cheerful people. I hear it's good to surround yourself with them.
I feel that one of the most important responsibilities of my lifetime is to give our kids a calm, peaceful, environment and the joy of a genuine childhood.
Conflict, on the other hand, drives me away. Hostility, confrontation; we choose not.
We're all responsible for choosing our own happiness.
Beau & I got our potatoes, radishes, carrots & spinach planted in the garden yesterday. A beautiful week, we're soaking up our share of vitamin D & keeping watch on the woodland wildflowers grabbing their chance to bloom before the trees above them leaf out, blocking the sun.
We've entered a jam-packed, busy, final two weeks of the school year. Adding to things, Dad is several hundred miles away working.
I'll do my best to get all that needs to be done, done.
