Have any of you heard of the magazine "Seeing the Everyday"? My dad introduced it to me and even bought me my own subscription! (Thanks dad). Anyway, I LOVE IT! It has all of these great stories in it about paying attention to the small things, learning things from our parents and teaching things to our children and how important that all is in the scheme of things. It is a "good thing", to steal a line from Martha Stewart, and I just wanted to share.

Here is "WHY" they started this magazine:
Because our lives are the sum of each moment and interaction.
Each day we work, eat, laugh, teach, play, read, remember...
and work at it all again the next day.
Because within daily rituals we find opportunity to build relationships,
develop character, find joy for the price of our time.
Because the most common rituals are manifest plainly in homes.
It's where we share, teach, grow, learn, serve, give our best without praise or fanfare.
So we pay tribute to fathers and mothers who have sacrificed self for the good of their children. That perhaps we might each find the poetry within life's daily prose.

I love that! Hope you have a great day.
