Love the Moment Challenge: April 2011

Love the Moment Heart

Welcome to a new month.  This month’s Love the Moment Calendar combines the Easter Advent Calendar which accounts for 12 days of the challenge.

If you’re wondering what these challenges are about, you may like to read the previous posts in the series.

Love the Moment Challenge: January

Love the Moment Challenge: February

Love the Moment Challenge: March

The challenge is a flexible thing. You can do a challenge everyday, a particular day, one day of the month or make up your own. The idea is to remember the little things. Because little things: they are big things.

Blogger Loving the Moment

Jenn from It’s Not Easy Being Green wrote a post recently that captured so much of what Love the Moment means.  Her post Remember Paper Dolls, is such a beautiful reminder about acknowledging little things.  Often if we change our mindset, we can “see” things in a new light.  Instead of finding millions of cut out dolls around the house as irritating, Jenn shares how she could see how cool it was to have such a creative daughter, as well as remembering her own childhood love of paper dolls.

Bingo! There you have the Love the Moment Challenges in a  nutshell: acknowledge the little things, change your mindset and connect with your child — such a beautiful thing. Thanks Jenn!

If you use twitter, the #lovethemoment hashtag can be used to join in the conversation. It doesn’t have to be related to the calendar, just share something that gave you joy.

    The scrapbooked calendar is such a lovely way to keep a record! These moments seem indelible at the time, but we do forget, and how wonderful to be able to share this with your children in a couple of years time.

    I love the paper doll idea. I’ve used my Cricut machine to make the paper dolls and my grandkids just love them!
