After a string of really bad days, I sat down to make a list of ten sure-fire ways to work towards making the day a good one.
Nail the prayer and exercise routine from dawn to bedtime.
Make a good meal and eat it at the table, all together; candelight is a good thing.
Sew something, anything.
Read stories to my little ones-- the more, the better.
Make bathtime relaxed and happy for everyone.
Choose joy, especially when it's not the easy choice.
