Going to a co-worker’s surprise party? The kids will don their Christmas ensembles.
Stay-home Valentine’s date with the Hubs? Crystal it is.
Button broke off of my favorite jeans? Replace with the most fantastic button ever that’s been sitting in a drawer for 2 years because it was just too cool for everyday crafting.
I actually have several buttons of this caliber, as my precious mother shows love via care packages full of locally-found treasures.
Yet, there they sit–unused because I’m saving them for some special project.
What if today is special enough?
My new motto:
Today is special enough for the nice stuff.
The pretty stuff that’s been sitting on the shelf, (or in the button box) waiting for that special occasion could be bringing you or someone you love a bit of joy. Right now.
Whenever I reach for my fav jeans, that button faithfully brings a smile–because it’s just that great and because it symbolizes a step toward the habit of celebrating each day.
Sewing it on was the best thing I ever did for my morning routine besides deciding that 5:30am is awesome.
How can you celebrate the gift of today?
