It is the sweet simple things in life which are the real ones after all. - Laura Ingles Wilder
Happiness, I believe, is found in the little things in life...things that you might rush quickly by and not even notice. We have all heard the expression, "to view the cup as half empty or half full," but, I think it is much more than that. I think there is significantly more "good" around us than we notice. Somehow, we let the short comings of our day fill our heads...and let the small sweet things slip by. So, I just wanted to share one very small thing that made me smile today...
Currently, My children are studying the middle ages. We have filled our shelves with wonderful books to learn about the era. We have already read Beowulf (with and without coloured pictures), Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Beorn the Proud (about the Vikings), A Single Shard (about a medieval potter), Famous Men of the Middle Ages, Outrageous Women of the Middle Ages and now we are on to the Trumpeter of Krakow (about medieval Poland).
When a friend later asked him does he like school? I quietly smiled when I heard him eagerly reply, "Yes, I do! Do you?"
