"If you want to have a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story." Orson Welles
Who doesn't want a happy ending? All of my favorite childhood movies end with "and they lived happily ever after." Happy endings are what people long for in stories.
My life is a story. Your life is a story. How do you envision your ending? I took this "happy ending" phrase two ways. Of course everyone wants to be remembered in a good way. However, I like to look at this phrase a little different. I want this to be my phrase at the end of every day. My sister-in-law is about to get married and a word of advise that I have for her is to "never go to bed angry at your spouse." When I have done this, I wake up in a bad mood. As a mom, I do not like going to bed mad at my kids. I again, wake up in a bad mood when I know our problems were not resolved.
Each day is a story. We do not know when our last day will be, however, I can live each day to the fullest. If my story were to end today, would I have a happy ending?
Life goes by so fast. As a working mom, I realize that each year goes by even faster. Maybe I should end my story on a good note, or a happy ending, instead of longing for tomorrow.
My husband made this pallet wood art today. We are having a blast repurposing items that some would think that their ending has long past. However, we see a pallet, and give it a completely different ending. He took an old, used, and left on the side of the road pallet (like it was the end), and gave it a happy ending!
When I have those days I am tired, yelled too many times, gave my husband the silent treatment... once again, I am going to do my best to remember to be a repurposed pallet wood, I am going to do my best to end my day with a happy ending.
Every night at dinner, the four of us as a family ask what our favorite part of the way was and what the worst part of our day was....
My Repurpose for today : making the best part of my day end with a genuine hug, kiss, and an "I love you," to my three favorite people in the world...Justin, Maddie, and Macaiden...then I will have had a happy ending to my day.
I am an everyday mom who likes everyday things. I love taking everyday items and giving them a repurpose. Our number one seller is our candles!
