WOW Wednesdays

I originally started this blog to document the adoption process. All along I've tried to keep it interesting, well as interesting as my little life could be. But where I run out of interesting, I've tried to at least keep it smart. I tried to do this with my Spanish word of the day. Boy, I don't even remember any of the words I was trying to learn. So now that I find myself out of touch with the real world on most days, I try to watch the news, but ughhhh is it depressing. It turns out that I know more about Noggin, which is going to 24 hour a day programing, than I do about where the presidential candidates stand. So I'm going to do something I did while teaching. Words Of Wisdom Wednesdays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just a little inspirational quote or saying that I find interesting. When I read something that I like or find particularly relevant to me I usually write it down, or mark the page. Sometimes it is in the newspaper, or in a book, once in a while it's even in people magazine. So here it is my first instalment of

Words of Wisdom Wednesday

"How many times have you noticed that it's the little quiet moments in the midst of life that seem to give the rest extra-special meaning." The world according to Mister Rogers

I keep trying to remind myself of this during this holiday season, when the long lines are getting on my nerves, or the traffic is terrible. I try to think of the peace I feel as I'm reading Olivia a story, or how nice it is to sit and have my first cup of coffee in the morning. So this week I'm trying to enjoy the quiet moments, and block out the annoying moments.

Oh Mommy, I'm a big girl now sitting in my booster seat.
Please let me have my juice and read in peace.

Now, if only I'd drag my butt out of bed earlier, I could enjoy my coffee in peace!!
