It's amazing what a little bit of love can do for the soul.
|a little love, a little beauty|
After my shitty day yesterday, a friend emailed me to check on me. Which made today better. The friend who texted me that she missed us brought dinner and we broke out our scrabble board for the first time in ages. Little things have a surprising effect. Little things can make or break a day, truly.
There's something truly beautiful about spending the day feeling sad, only to end it and begin the next day feeling so much love around you. This road of life we're driving on can be so bumpy at times, it's easy to forget about the things that make it worth riding those bumps out. I'm thankful to have friends and loved ones to remind me of those things.
I purchased our Elf on the Shelf today as well, and he is sitting in the window at home eagerly awaiting the arrival of my daughter. Since we plan on seeing Santa tonight, I think the timing is perfect. Now, I'm just hoping that Santa goes better than last year. She hated him last year and only through trickery were we able to get a decent picture. Fingers crossed.
Cheers to a day that's been better than the one before, and a tomorrow that is brighter than today.
