Everything in my life feels so disconnected at this point and time. I'm hoping that by blogging daily in the month of March, I will be able to begin reflecting and connecting the pieces of my life back together. I have had people tell me many times that every yes also equals a no. Lately, it seems as though I have been telling my family no more than yes. It's difficult for me to cut back on school when I am so passionate about what I do for school. Typing that makes me feel so horribly guilty, because shouldn't I be more passionate about my family than I am about my job? My focus for this Slice of Life Challenge is to make more time to say yes to my family. I want to take time to enjoy the small moments and begin to say yes to so many more larger moments along the way.
My small moment for the day was my four year old daughter proudly announcing that she got ready all on her own...just like mommy! As I turned around she was wearing a beautiful shade of lipstick. This lipstick just so happened to be heavily coating her eyelids. After taking her picture (I'm a firm believer in teenage blackmail), I helped her wash her face and talked to her about all the reasons that she is beautiful. She told me that a smile and happiness is what makes her beautiful, but makeup makes her a big girl like mommy.
