It is that time again. Momstheword asks us all to weigh in on what we're doing to make our homes sing each week. This is, I think, her effort to get us to be conscious of our lives and the choices we have to determine the quality of our lives and our homes. I think that is a worthwhile goal. We should all be aware of and reminded of the power we wield in our homes. It is something that is easy to forget.
This week, I have to confess, I am doing nothing to make my home sing. Seriously. I have no plan, no great scheme. Oh, we'll do chores and we'll do schoolwork. Superman and I will still try to figure out how to pay all our bills and do all the things we want to at the same time. We'll be discussing the changes we see on the horizon, including the ones that scare us. The kids will still fight (did I just admit that?). Still, this week, I will do nothing to make my home sing. There is no threshold I must cross before I will sing. I am simply choosing to be happy and sharing that happiness with my family and friends. My happiness will not be dependent upon this or that happening. My happiness will not be dependent upon the weather, my children, my husband, or our circumstances each day. My happiness will not be dependent up my interactions with others - positive or negative. My happiness is my choice...and I choose to be happy this week. I hope it will be catching.
So, our house (or at least I) will be singing Don't Worry, Be Happy this week and I will be happy.
Head over to Momstheword's house to see what everyone else is tackling this week. She loves having a house full of friends.
