Winter has hunkered down. It's removed its shoes, curled up on the couch, and is looking at us with an icy stare like, "just try to do something." Winter is here to stay is what I'm saying.
I'm not used to winters that drag on unendingly. It's snowing in March, and this is so far from what I know to be reality that when I wake up, freezing, I just sort of stare out the window all crazy-eyed and mutter "thanks, global warming" under my breath.
I need a little happy. I also need a gentle reminder that there are far worse things than a little ice and snow. And so Tiny Happy Tuesday is born. It's a place to pop little snippets of the good stuff. The stuff that makes me smile, the stuff that gives me the warm and fuzzies, the stuff that reminds me that for the most part my life is wonderful and I'm a much happier person when I acknowledge that.
I want my kids to grow up revelling in this beautiful, messy life and the best way for them to learn how is to watch me.
Will you join me? Tomorrow morning I'll post a short list of things that are currently making my heart sing (even if it is just a warble, muffled by SNOW IN FLIPPETY FLIPPING MARCH). I'd love for you to grab my graphic and join the Facebook group, and share in the fun (don't forget to use the hashtag: #TinyHappyTuesday so I can follow along!).
Let's find the happy, friends.
