Don’t worry, be happy! I ordered this happy little sponge in my delivery of groceries this week. Now I find myself singing that Don’t Worry song or listening to it as I’m doing dishes and cleaning the sink. Maybe it’s because it makes me happy to have a smiling sponge looking up at me, but partly because “don’t worry” has been a good reminder that there are some things we CAN do during this crisis. Rather than just sit around worrying, that is.
What good does worrying do, anyway? Doing what we can to protect our family (as the gatekeepers of our home) and just finding more joy in the every day routines of life will be far more beneficial to us than worry.
A smiling sponge in the kitchen doesn’t solve much, but it sure lightens the mood. It makes everyone smile. That’s worth something.
When I was ordering my smiling sponge I also decided to get new soap dispensers for our bathrooms and kitchen. Washing our hands is one of the beneficial things we can do, so I thought these automatic soap dispensers would help cut down on the times hands need touch the dispensers throughout the day (I fill them with my custom scented toxin-free foaming soap, instead of the soap that came with them).

I have an extra smiling sponge. Who wants happy mail? I’ll choose one random commenter on this post to send a smile to! :-)
Y’all are in my thoughts and prayers. Let’s stick together. We’ll get through this.
