It is Friday evening. The end of a long week for us. My kids and hubby are watching Cars 2 and eating popcorn and I am going to finish up a bit of work before I join them.
We have accomplished a lot this week. Noah and I sat down and he wrote a story for me:

Noah is settling into his martial arts classes every week. It is nice to see him do something he enjoys.
I am really grateful for taking a couple of minutes every day to create a little page about what I am thankful for. I am finding that I am not sweating as much the small stuff. So what if my home isn't picture perfect? So what if I have 4 loads of laundry left to wash and fold? NBD (no big deal) - what I tell Noah when he gets worked up over a small thing related to school or writing. I am learning to apply the NBD principles to my every day. The small stuff stays small when I remember to be grateful.
And finally here is a quick peek at a wreath I finished up the other day - will save the rest of the photos for another post:
