Note to self – May 1 OLW bloghop

This post is part of the One Little Word Blog Hop where members of Ali Edwards’ OLW class share their monthly assignments.  Each month, on the 1st of the month, I’ll participate and then give you a link to the next in line (see the full list of participants at the end of this post).

I must share one other funny thing my daughter said.  I told her recently that I am really trying to slow down and enjoy the many great moments in the day, rather than organize the garage, pot more plants, deadhead some flowers, weed the garden, do the dishes, or whatever… you name it.  She said (no idea where she got this), “Yeah, Mommy, because your head might explode.” I hadn’t laughed that much in a while.  She is so right!

Check back on Friday for photos of some recent house projects.

I’m so glad to be part of this blog hop!  Some of the artwork these ladies do is just incredible! Now, hop along to the next OLW post.  She (and each thereafter) will send you on down the list from there until you’ve seen them all.  The rest of the participants are listed below.  I encourage you to visit every blog for more creative fun.

You can read other posts related to my OLW here.

  1. Love the photo strip. Love the quote. But most of all, love what your daughter said. Yes! Do enjoy the little moments so your head won’t explode.

  2. Love the comments kids come out with – glad you’re slowing down so your head doesn’t explode. And she is so right, there are days it feels like mine could… Cool photo strip, I like the playfulness of it.

  3. I would have loved to have this perspective when my boys were little. I try to tell myself those same words each day, be present in their lives – the laundry can wait. I love what your daughter said to you…kids are so insightful sometimes. 😉

  4. just love the simple wisdom of children. 🙂 that’s awesome. and i love your heartfelt, honest letter. those days seems like a million years ago for me, but yet when i really think about it, i can so remember feeling overwhelmed. good for you though for living in the moment. it’s so worth it! 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
