I'm choosing Happiness - Join me?

I recently received an email where the sender berated me for choosing to pursue my career in lieu of being home at 3:45 to meet my children at the bus.  To quote, the sender said "since when did getting a babysitter to get your girls off the bus become such a grand plan?...is deserting your family the best option?"

I actually took this criticism with a grain of salt, because I prescribe to the Maya Angelou school of thought...


But this experience made me step back and reflect on all of the wonderful people in my life who don't question my decisions and who love me unconditionally.  For you I am grateful...  thank you for laughing with me through the good times and the bad...


So I'm taking the email I received as a reminder to...


because



Sometimes even ugliness can be constructive...that's how I'm choosing to deal with this nastiness...and I also spend it laughing.... I hope you do too!

I think some people need to learn to mind their own business. Anyone that truly knows you knows that you are a wonderful mother and spend lots of quality time with your girls. Keep on laughing!!!!

Well......they suck....and they obviously are unaware how happy your children are, what a rockstar mom you are, how much your husband adores you and your friends love you!!!! They are just jealous!!!!
