Get up and dance!
So, here's the lesson I'd like to share with you today.
My all time favorite saying is simply, "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain". Sometimes, we get so caught up in the living of life, that we forget to take a little time to enjoy it. Sometimes, I am so serious. I forget how much my children need to dance. I forget that part of my job as a mother is to take the time to show them that we can make choices to be happy even when we are sad. It only took five minutes of my time, but she learned to laugh that day. She skipped outside to play with the other girls. The tears were gone. The crying was over. The storm had ended. The situation didn't change, but her perspective on what was important altered just enough for her to learn to dance in the rain. (And maybe, just a little bit around the house too!)
You never know what you can do until you get up and dance!
