Mondays are the Jam...Joy in the Ordinary...

We roll pretty low-key on Mondays. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday have standing commitments so we use Monday and Friday for catching our breath, laundry, fun field trips...or whatever comes our way. But Monday has one little detail that sets it apart...one special event that ALWAYS offers the greatest toddler entertainment....

TRASH DAY!!!

My kids have been obsessed for quite some time. They hear them round the cul-de-sac behind us and they rush to the windows (or outside if it's nice) to greet our trash men with waves, smiles, and the excitement of two two-year-olds who love big trucks! The nice men always wave, honk their horn, and take an extra few seconds to roll my trash can up the driveway and say "hi" to the kids. It's a small gesture but it means so much. The kids think it's the coolest, and it's nice that as soon as the truck turns the corner onto our street they are looking for P&C. Every other week is a double bonus and it's trash AND recycle day! TWO big trucks. You can't even imagine the joy. Ha!

Last week was trash and recycle week, so we decided to "meet" our nice friends and give them some water. I'm not kidding when I tell you my kids were giddy. As the truck was about 3 houses down Caroline was literally beaming and jumping up and down. It was a joy for me to see them so excited to serve those that serve us weekly. I pray we always look for ways to brighten someone's day or just say, "Thank you" for what people do.




I hope you all have a wonderful week and find joy blessings in the ordinary.
