Still trying to look on the bright side! Boy the sun is bright, isn't it? ~smile~
*Giving my children popsicles and ice pops that brighten their little faces with pleasure.
*A break from the "do your math" routine.
*Sending the kids outside to play.
*Knowing the pleasure that my "yes" can give when they want to play in the water.
*The kids' excitement as they plan a trip to the fireworks stand.
