Sunday Share: Books we love, kindergarten edition

Happy Sunday, dear friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and are ready for the week ahead! In the past few weeks, Wild Man’s reading has improved by leaps and bounds. He’s even reading bedtime stories these days. This voracious reader Mama is loving it. This week we are sharing five books we love, the kindergarten edition. These books are beautifully written and illustrated and make kids and adults happy.

Lord, I hope this day is good

I was driving home the other day and the Don Williams song “Lord, I hope this day is good” came on the radio and almost as soon as the song started, tears started flowing down my cheeks. The song has always had this effect on me and yet, I never could put my finger on why.

Happy Sunday, dear friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and are ready for the week ahead! I found everything in this week’s Sunday Share on Facebook and used the “Save for later” feature to read when I was ready. I’m LOVING this new (at least to me) feature!

When making the decision about what we want to do, I’ve found that many of us begin with what we do well and then use that as a jumping off point for our professional lives.

With all options on the table, we take the path of least resistance.

What’s that about? I mean, really?

If we can do anything we want to do, why are we not doing what we are most excited about? Why are we not building our careers around the things that make our hearts sing?

I think it’s because sometimes we get so caught up in finding success through our careers that we forget about figuring out who we want to be.
