Index of Thoughts

Sophia who is 7 has quite the flare for drama.  She is so quick to get angry over the littlest of things.  She used to be my super easy child and now she gives me a run for my money with her outbursts.  I am hoping this is just a development stage that will pass.  The other night she went into hysterics because I only read her 5 pages out of her book.  She began to say how awful her life is and how much she hates her life and how all of her friends' lives are so much better.  All of this over only 5 pages.  What kind of mother am I?  I am so terrible to have only read so little.  It was a big book so it took a bit to read those 5 pages.  It was late and it was time for her to go bed plus I still had other children to tuck in.

So today the perfect lesson came across my Facebook page.  It was a photo journal of children all over the world and pictures of their bedrooms.  Here is the great article!

I had all of the girls gather around the computer to see and we would find on the globe each location of the children.  After that they sat down at the table to write a list of all the things that they were grateful for.

I decided to also write my own list of things that I am grateful for in this move instead of focusing on the things that I will lose.

  1. a beautiful view
  2. more time with Andy
  3. a happier husband
  4. reconnecting with old friends
  5. a bigger house
  6. a mountain house
  7. closer to ski and hike
  8. involvement in a art driven community
  9. getting to purge unused stuff
  10. having a more efficient business for Andy
