2020... the year of making lemons out of lemonade. As a mom, my goal as we begin the holiday season with Halloween, my goal is to make sure their dominate memory of this year is joy. Sure, there’s a lot that is different, a lot that may not be fun or awesome, but if I focus on the lemons, that’s all they’ll remember as well.

This Halloween, as I was dressing my boys up to be super heroes, I thought to myself, if my goal for my boys is lemonade, then why isn’t it for myself as well? That concept shouldn’t just be for my boys. What you focus on grows, right? So that’s what we did. We focused on what we COULD do instead of what we couldn’t. We focused on those who we could share this day with instead of those we couldn’t. We focused on speeding smiles and joy instead of negativity. 

From my family to yours, I hope this start of the Holiday season was a happy one!
