With so much not quite right with the world, I have to focus on what I can control.
I learned from Gretchen Rubin, one of my most helpful authors, something that can really start my day with a moment of happiness is my bed well made. This also helps to put everything on a positive path before I leave my room.
To help make this even better, I got a new spread and shams and even a couple of throw pillows for Christmas from my mother-in-law.
So even though I did not know what all this day would bring, I started with a moment of order and happiness. In the days to come, these moments may be harder to find so I will choose to make at least this one before I leave my room each morning.
