Where ever I am I always find myself looking out the window wishing I was somewhere else. - Angelina Jolie
After reading this quote I could not help... but stop and just think. This is a sad quote to me. Today I looked out my front window and saw my husband showing Maddie how to water our plants. I could not have asked for a better window or better yet, wishing I was someplace else.
The time change has gotten to us. The four of us are very sleepy. However, it has brought more daylight, which means, more time outside! We LOVE the outdoors and thanks to some very special friends, we now have an outdoor table to enjoy a meal. As I watch my husband grill outside my kitchen window, I have found a sense of satisfaction. I see a man who has his escape time and enjoys his grill.
I enjoy watching my kids play on their scooters, bicycles, and playing with their sidewalk chalk outside my window. The windows in my house are my camera. They are there to view angles, views, and visions that are candid shots of my precious family. They do not always know that I am watching...however, my view is enough for me. I get to see them when they know "mom" is not watching their every move.
After selling Girl Scout cookies this weekend, I walked into a surprise. Justin had built me a coffee table for our living room. Our coffee table is made out of a window. As I walk past this window coffee table I will always be reminded of the memories that will be made and the love from a husband. The reflection now reflects my floors, however, this antique window once showed the view of many memories.
As you view outside your window, remember to think about the memories you are creating. Are they ones that you will forever treasure or ones that you will one day want to erase? The good new is...we can wash windows and a new view can be made every time they are clean.
My Repurpose for today : Every time I look out of a window I will make a goal to see a different view....better yet, a memorable view.
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!
