I thought ofrepparttar story last night when my little girl was using every delaying tactic inrepparttar 150431 book about going to bed, and just refused to settle down. I caught myself thinking, ďOh no, Iíve got to go upstairs, missrepparttar 150432 end ofrepparttar 150433 television show Iím watching, and calm her down and settle her into bedĒ Ö but quickly replacedrepparttar 150434 thought with something alongrepparttar 150435 lines of ďIím lucky that I "get to" spend 5 quiet minutes with this funny, amazing little girl, even if I am tired and could do with some rest!Ē

And I thought ofrepparttar 150436 story again just this morning whenrepparttar 150437 beeper on my tumble dryer annoyed me into emptying my clean washing! I turned some very negative, lazy thinking around by reminding myself that I was lucky to have a tumble dryer,repparttar 150438 clothes to put into it, andrepparttar 150439 family to be washing them for! It was still a chore but somehow it didnít seem such a bad one anymore.

My husband reminds himself ofrepparttar 150440 story whenrepparttar 150441 alarm clock goes off early inrepparttar 150442 morning and he struggles out of bed and torepparttar 150443 train. He "gets to" go to work. Many people donít. And I think of it when I am sitting, uninspired, in front of my computer, wishing that I didnít have admin or website chores to do for Activity Village. The thought doesnít last long. I may have admin and website chores to do, but I also "get to" provide activities and inspiration to parents, teachers and children aroundrepparttar 150444 world every week. How lucky can I be?
