I was at my favorite store, Michael’s, a week or so ago and as I was browsing the $1 bins, I saw this saying that said something to the effect: “What Have You Done For Yourself Today?” I looked at that saying, and I thought to myself, this is the totally wrong message. This message comes from a place of trying to help, but if we want to be happy, then we should be asking ourselves, “What Have You Done Today for Someone Else?”
I’m not Catholic, so I don’t really have any affinity for St. Patrick’s Day aside from the excitement my kids get of wearing green to not be pinched. I probably wouldn’t even bother decorating for it, but it’s too early for Easter decorations, so it fills the void quite nicely!
And since that phrase has been on my mind, as I was getting out my St. Patrick’s Day decorations, I decided I wanted to come up with a St. Patrick’s Day quote that would get the message across that I want my kids to learn and our family to live by.
I made this using my Cricut machine, but I recreated a similar one in PDF form in case you want to print it out for your own home. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am a really terrible photographer, and I don’t have a fancy camera, so sorry about the glare, but you get the idea!
