Just Because…

Filed under: Just Because — Char @ 6:04 am

Just because it’s Monday!

The sun has poked it’s pretty little head through the clouds and I hear birds chirping and I have a mug of  mint tea with a little honey which makes my happy! AND, I have a new cardigan the color of a rainy day with shiny little buttons and this makes me really happy… J.Crew (outlet, folks!) is out to make me spend all my pennies!

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about today. Not today as in Monday, but living in and for today. Life can be crazy with it’s frustrations and way too long “to do” lists and schedules to keep. But will they go away tomorrow?!! Will they? Most likely today’s crazy stuff will be replaced with tomorrow’s crazy! Will the “good life” really start when this problem is taken care of and this bill is paid and this person understands how wrong they are and I have that gorgeous top from J.Crew that will go perfect with the rainy day color cardigan?!! Okay, okay…probably not! In fact, all these things make up life as we know it! So it is up to me to decide if I am going to live in and for today with all it’s imperfections. It’s up to me to decide what I am going to do with it! So I think I am going to really give it a try! Do what I am doing right now with all my heart instead of thinking about what I should or could or would be doing!

So anyway, I think that means I need that J.Crew top and if I remember right…they had a pair of boots I loved too!

Okay, okay…just kidding! I will take my kiddos on a bike ride today and maybe make them chocolate chip pancakes because they love these and make the most of this Monday!

Happy Monday! And because it’s true….whoopie pies make ANY day so much better!


  1. I loved reading this! It is so true! God gives us every day and situation to see how we will handle it and react to it! We can have a horrible morning where everything goes wrong, and in spite of it all, be happy!!! And shopping does help make a person happier!! And whoopie pies!!! Awesome pic!!! Love your inspiration and desire to be above it all, Char!

  3. Another happy Monday to you again too!!! Just got back from buying some groceries for Lena’s wedding on Saturday, and couldn’t resist a big container of freshly baked whoopies at Yoders Market! Grabbed a container for us to munch on while we set up wedding things at church this week! Have a wonderful week and see you Saturday morning! Lori Lapp
