Beauty in Life

Opening my eyes to the beauty in life is not enough.  My mind and heart need to be open, as well.

Once this is posted, I will be knee-deep in Spring Break Madness. Craziness will indeed be taking place, as my family of 5 spend some much-needed quality time together.

Morning. Noon. And night. All of us. Together.

Normally, I would be moaning and groaning. Spouting off the typical parenting woes that we all experience. I am sarcastic by nature, so that is easy for me. It helps relieve my stress.

Then I read a quote from Maya Angelou and decided to take a different approach.

Maya Angelou made me realize that I need to be present during this time.  I need to open my mind, eyes and heart. Find the beauty in the memories that will be made. Accept the gift of  laughter, along with the upsets. (And I guarantee there will be upsets.)

This is a necessary part of my life. This is necessary to be true to myself.

My family is my beauty. My miracle. I plan to enjoy every crazy second of Spring Break 2015. Every single beautiful second.
