Today I am grateful for Mr. Moose. I had to go to an appointment today and I wasn’t in the mood so I was cranky. After being in the pool for two hours with my own class and two classes of kids, I wanted to stay home and sit in the sun at the kitchen table to warm up. But no. I had to keep the appointment.
I’m driving the usual route, swearing at the usual suspects for driving like idiots, of which thankfully I am not one, and generally grumbling under my breath.
Then I saw our favorite lawn decoration. Mr. Moose. Wearing an eagles cap, just like the one I wore to the parade. We’re likies. And it made me laugh. For the rest of the day, every time I find myself going into the glums, I’m going to remember Mr. Moose wearing that hat, so if you see me smiling, that’s what I’m up to. Nothing more. Honest.
