How to Create More Happy Moments That Matter Most
I hope you enjoy this picture as much as I enjoyed taking it. My sweet 3-year-old thoroughly enjoyed creating and swimming in her mud bath - even laying down in it! It made us both completely happy. I was happy because she was enjoying herself so much. She was happy because, let's face it, getting dirty is a ton of fun!
Remember Other Happy Moments and Recreate Them
It's the little, quirky moments in life that are the most memorable. It all started because I remembered how much her two older sisters enjoyed playing in the mud around this age. It was awesome then and is still awesome now. But Sweet Pea took it to an entirely different level of dirty!
This picture reminds me that in this moment I got my priorities right. I didn't care that the mud would probably stain her clothes or that she would have to get a real bath sooner than later. I completely basked in this moment with my funny, adventurous girl and made a memory to last forever.
Establish Priorities - Who Will Get Your Attention?
I've spent a lot of time thinking about my priorities the past few weeks.
The scriptures are clear that we are to prioritize God first (Matthew 6:38). We are to build up his kingdom on this earth.
The most important place to do that is in our homes - with our own families. After all, the family is the central unit of God's creations. Put God and family first, and all else will fall into place or out of our lives.
Take Cues From the People Around You
Now go take a deep breath and make a good memory with someone you love! Has your child been begging to be taken to the park, wanting to do a craft with you, help you in the kitchen? Perhaps your spouse or best friend has needed some one-on-one time with you just to talk. The opportunities are endless as we search for ways to create more happy moments that matter most. And, honestly, it's the little ones that will be remembered.
