A New Pollyanna
I tend to be so focused on my tasks at hand each day, that I sometimes lose the moments of fun and laughter. What a shame for me.
So, I am turning over this "new leaf!" Are you laughing with me about this "new leaf" thing? That's ok,, because we all need a good laugh,, especially me.
But, the thing is... I am serious! No, I mean serious about the New leaf thing...
Here it is....
I want to start joining in on the "fun" in every day. The silly that is always around me. The happy and the glad. Basically, I am going to be a new Pollyanna.
Ohh,, this is one of my absolute favorite movies. Really. I know, I know,, some say that movie is sappy, and annoying,, but I love her spirit. Her finding the "glad moments" in every day.
Soo,, Here I go. A "new leaf" beginning. A New Pollyanna. I am sure it won't be too hard to find the "happy" in every day... for I do that already,, but my challenge will be to HAVE the fun and laughter be a part of my life. To join in,, and not just observe.
I think as a mom, over the years, I got "lost" in my efforts to "keep" my home - raising little ones, homeschooling, and keeping things going. My fun spirit that I had before I began this journey of motherhood, seemed to be out on a shelf for a "few" years.
Time to dust off that box I labeled fun, and stored away ! Laughter will be heard again, and we will see what happens.
Hmmm... This is going to surprise my kids. I can only imagine the first time this week I begin to romp around with them and join IN their fun... they may even stop and look at me like I have 4 heads.
And what about when I decide to forfeit the tasks at hand and join the laughter that is going thru the house? - I actually think that the laughter may cease for a minute, while they grasp what just walked into the room - a mom that has turned over a "new leaf!"
Wow -I think this is going to be FUN! See? I am practicing already.
So, here is the New Pollyanna - don't you wish that you could be a fly on my wall? How FUN would that be?
Think of me, this is going to be challenge. Ohhh,, How fun!!
