What’s With The Yo, Yo?..

DAY 233

“Most of us are just about as happy as we make up our minds to be.” – Abraham Lincoln

“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.” — Oscar Wilde

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.” – William James

“Respect yourself and others will respect you.” – Confucius

“Nothing is an obstacle unless you say it is.” – Wally Amos

“Vitality shows not only in the ability to persist, but in the ability to start over.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

“Be what you are. This is the first step toward becoming better than you are.” – August W. Hare

In case I’ve failed to mention it in the past 232 posts, I watch tiny humans (more commonly known as children) for a “job”. Believe me when I say I use the airquotes when asked what my job is. I don’t feel one bit like I’m working when I hangout with any of my peeps. I’ve basically given myself the opportunity to constantly play, act silly, and be a goofball. Oh, also repeat myself with synonymous words. It’s cool, just roll with it. So today, I was presented with this yo-yo that had no string, but lit up – it was strange and hilarious to me. [Insert my quote, which has become the title for the post here.] I hope that’s given you some sense of better understanding.

Also today, the tiny humans couldn’t find me while playing Hide-&-Seek. How two boys cannot find a 5’6″ babysitter in their own house had me in stitches today! They’d look in two places, call it quits, and wait it out until I’d walk out of some hallway and scream, “Where were you?! We looked everywhere.” Ha! (Babysitters, parents, grandparents, general public – great game to play!)

This evening in class we learned about Rosemary in aromatherapy. We even discovered there is a rosemary plant growing outside the school! You know what that means – field trip! All the way down the hall and out the door. I’ll quite obviously take any field trips I can get!

My shirt from ThisShirtHelps arrived today!! I have tried it on, but will take and post a picture of it after I’ve washed it. I love this organization. I hope you’ll check them out!

I am thankful for: Rosemary, which is for remembering.
