YES! It’s here, Halloween! The costume is done, my thumb is healing, who needs candy? I’m happy enough as it is!
You see, it doesn’t take much to make me happy. I get that the world is moving too fast and life isn’t getting any easier. I get that some days are up and some days are down but if I can, I’d much rather focus on what’s good in this world. Odd connection to Halloween, you ask?
This whole Halloween costume making, sore thumb, falling and almost doing a face plant, work is zapping all my energy, oh my golly we got sick shortly after school got started, and more really made me reflect on what’s important in life. Sure, I chose to lump it all together but the bottom line is, events like Halloween for our family really is about spending time together and building memories. So, this year’s Halloween memory will include a really cool costume and a very clumsy mom who jabbed herself and got a super sore swollen thumb. Hey, it makes for a great story!
Beyond that though, I appreciate the time our family gets to spend together. My big kid and I came up with the idea for her costume, we worked on it together, we brainstormed together, and the hubby even got involved in some of the sewing when my thumb was out of commission.
So, whether you celebrate Halloween or not, here’s to a memorable day filled with fun moments whatever they may be. If you are going out for ‘trick or treating’ remember to stay safe!
