Here are a couple of little things that have brought me tremendous pleasure in the past few weeks.
~I was minding my own business in the Starbuck's drive thru line.. actually, truth be told I was lecturing my children..harshly. I pull forward to get my drink and the sweet window lady smiled nicley and said "Good Morning and Merry Christmas" as she handed me my drink she also added, "the car in front of you has paid for your drink today".
What?? My drink?? What a wonderful way to start my day, I could not help but smile:)
~Getting complimented on my children. As a mother that is just about the greatest feeling you can get, and just think it was only a kindly spoken word.
~Looking at your husband and knowing you are still very much in love with him.
~Rain..and today frost on our roof!
~Finding a treasure at the thrift store, just think I'm doing my part to help the enviroment (or something like that).
I encourage you to find a "little thing" this week. With the holidays here we are all looking for that WOW factor, take a step back and look for a little thing:)

A very big shout out to http://berlinswhimsy.typepad.com/ for the very easy tutorial on these darling bookmarks! I whipped these out late last night and I'm totally in love with them;) For a book lover like me this will make the sweetest hand made gift for Christmas, paired with a fab book and journal..perfection.

Hindsight is different from regret. Regret is looking back and feeling remorse over what you have done. Hindsight is looking back and seeing the past through a different perspective or view. It’s realizing you should have taken a different exit off of I-5 but knowing there is nothing you can do about it now.
I have had lots of time to reflect in the past few months. Maybe looking back and wishing I would have done things a tad different, wishing I would have paid more attention to certain relationships and less attention to others…
I am not going to make the mistake of turning hindsight into regret and dwelling over what could/should have been.
Instead I’m going to use my hindsight to make my future better. My hindsight will help me navigate better through my life still in front of me, help me to make the decisions that will have an effect on my whole world, eternity.
Here’s to hindsight ..let it be a compass for my life.
