Sometimes, when you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, the simplest things can divert your attention. Even if it's only for a moment.
The sounds of "Colonel Mustard in the library with a candlestick" or "You sunk my battleship" make you smile and think of simpler, easier times.
Game Day at school is a welcome diversion. I like hearing my kiddos say these phrases as it transports me to my childhood. My sister and I wore those games out when we were little.
Then a kiddo comes to me with a Twilight trivia question. She wonders if I know the answer, since we've shared our love for the series with each other. I can't believe I'm able to answer correctly, and she loves that I actually know the answer.
Finally, a few of my girls beckon me over to show me something......
Between that and hearing "It's always Mr. Green!" I think it'll be okay.
