It's been incredibly cold and snowy here for months. I'm of the thought that if it is cold, it might as well be snowy (sorry, friends). It's quite beautiful to have a world blanketed in wintery white, but as my friend Tricia wrote this morning, "Right now my eyes are absolutely starved for color." Sometimes we have to find our own color in our worlds as she did today.
The way we see things can shift our outlook. We create our own realities. For this reason, I'm going to spend this month writing about the little ways I find happiness. One thing I know for sure, and this event proves this time and time again, it's the little things that really matter. We find happiness by watering the grass where we stand.
As soon as I arrived home that afternoon, I dashed through the door, changed my clothes, grabbed my already packed suitcase, and headed right back out to the car. We managed to arrive in Indy in time for the tip off of the game as planned. Unfortunately we were to find out that Kyrie hadn't traveled with the team and apparently Lebron needed some rest. This didn't damper our spirits. Though the Cavaliers' loss was hard to take, we took it all in stride.
We stayed in Indy through Saturday, eating, walking the cold city streets, and having fun. There's something about spending time in the city that I always love, but having the time with family made it even better. The time with my son, his girlfriend, and my husband was refreshing even in the subzero temperatures. Happiness is found in time with family.
