A closet full of balloons was the reminder my husband and I received recently from our 23 year old son…slow down and stop sweating the small stuff.  We had been through a stressful few months of selling a house, building a house and moving twice. Yes, those are big things but in trying to get it all done we had lost sight of the fun of what we were doing and creating. We may have tripped over 150 balloons trying to get dressed that night but the image of those balloons (it became the cover screen on my phone) kept us from tripping over our own hurdles in the next few weeks as we finished our home.

It just goes to show that it doesn’t take more than a little gesture (and a lot of hot air) to make someone’s day.
