Each day provides its own gifts.
Marcus Aurelius

Each day provides its own gifts and today is no different from any other.

Tonight while you lay on your bed discouraged because there have been some failures and some losses, remember to count the gifts as well.  The accomplishments of the little one who means so much to you.  The tasks you were able to complete today.  The laughter of the children as they played.  The joy of new discoveries.  So many gifts have come your way today.  What a wonderful day it has been!

A home without books is a body without soul.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Everybody’s soul is little bit different just as everyone’s home is a little different.  In our home mystery and love of children’s literature abound.  Dr. Seuss rhymes here.  Imagination soars with each new book that has been read.

Other homes have a different kind of soul.  There are the homes where the thirst to learn new things is evident in the reading material on the shelves.  There are homes where the love of nature is found.  And there are homes where depravity lives.  It can be seen in the reading material on the coffee tables and under the beds.  What kind of a soul do you want your home to have? Don’t be fooled into thinking that what you put into your mind is just a form of relaxation.  It is also an expression of the soul of your home.

    Hit the high notes!

    Everyday as I drive to the hospital where Grandpa is getting his chemo treatments for cancer,  I pass a sign with the picture of Beethoven and the words “Hit the High Notes!”  Everyday it encourages me to look past the exhaustion, look past all the dozens of things I need to do.  It assures me that,  with a little effort, I can hit that high note.

    Let me encourage you today as well.  Your loved one might not be fighting cancer,  your little ones might not be special needs but you do have battles you fight every day.   You have struggles you go through each and every day.  It can make you feel totally overwhelmed.   When you reach that point – when you think you’re ready to quit, take a deep breath- reach down inside yourself – and HIT that HIGH note!

    Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
    St.  Francis of Assisi

    This particular quote can get me through every day of cleaning the playroom. Every night I walk into that room and stare at a carpet of toys.  Boxes of giant Legos are mixed with wooden blocks, alphabet blocks, toy food and dishes, dinosaurs, stuffed animals, balls from the ball pit, books and zoo animals, and the list goes on.

    Before we go on, let’s just get past the part where I should have taught my children to be neater and I should make them clean up after themselves. Let’s just realize that some people call my little ones ‘special needs’.  I just call them special. So Nature Boy can figure out ‘clean up’ when we talk about the ball pit and the Legos but other things confuse him causing him to -literally- tear his hair out. The Little Guy has PIKA which means he eats everything as long as it’s not an actual food so he is too busy eating his toys to put them away.

    Anyway, the job looks insurmountable. Time to break it down into what’s necessary. The empty and mostly empty juice boxes that are attracting bugs have got to go.  So do those sneaky snacks that have made it into the playroom when I wasn’t looking. Then I start tossing toys in the general direction of their allotted containers which usually reminds me that my height is not the only reason basketball should never have been a career choice for me.  Eventually all the toys are in piles close enough to their containers to be scooped up and stored properly. Once they are in their containers, the rocking horse, the little table and chairs, the little trampoline and the books can all be returned to their allotted spots. Bingo! What has seemed impossible has become possible.

    Okay. So the playroom is not an earth shattering accomplishment but it is an accomplishment.  The point is that you should take your life in little pieces.

    Don’t try to fix all the errors of your life and all your shortcomings at once.  Pick one piece.

    Fix that one.  Go on to the next. Work on that for a while.  Keep adding those things one at a time until -wonder of wonders- you are accomplishing the impossible.

    Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t.
