Because of Blunt-Brain Syndrome (ie. I'm not accomplishing anything and my brain is fried) I thought I'd do on my blog what every great teacher since the introduction of the moving picture has done when they can't come up with a good lesson plan: SHOW A MOVIE.
I saw this one on Danica's blog the other day and it convicted me. I think it's Alice's boundless optimism. I've been so caught up in how tired I feel and how little the Dashingly Handsome Sidekick (DHS) is home this week (high school football playoffs + parent/teacher conferences = bluggghsplurt).
It could be third-trimester blues, losing-Grandma blues, not-having-DHS-all-to-myself blues, or maybe all of the above that's making me into a large, whiny sandwich who can't fit into any of her clothes.
Then I watched this movie. And really, what in the world do I have to complain about? And why aren't I smiling more and enjoying all the blessings that are poured daily into my lap ... and playing my piano? Why am I letting the size of my laundry pile steal my zest for life?
Hope you enjoy....
