The first self help book I ever read was Don't Sweat the Small Stuff--and it's all small stuff by Richard Carlson. I learned to let a lot of things roll off my back and keep going without fretting too much.
This week we spilled a total of six glasses of milk (and one of water) at mealtime. Somehow everything I learned about small stuff left my brain as I became more uptight with each spill. Could it be because milk is outrageously expensive at $3.00 a gallon? Could it be because I washed way too many place mats and pot holders this week? Could it be because cleaning up milk messes makes my kitchen rags forever smell rotten? I wish I felt justified in using one of these as a worthy excuse but I know that this is small stuff.
Now that I have come to this conclusion I am ready to stop 'sweating' and enjoy the Christmas holiday! Merry Christmas!
