It happened months ago and I keep thinking that someday I am going to take my carpet cleaner to it and see if I can restore it to its natural color- or at least close to it.
But something always stops me and instead of worrying about my blue-tinged carpet, I find myself filled with thoughts of thankfulness for the crazy little munchkin man who created this beautiful piece of art. That little guy had a rough start to life and we are just grateful that he is here, even if it means that he blesses us with blue carpet.
A few years ago I probably wouldn't have seen the beauty of this masterpiece.
I would have been too concerned about how it would look, marring the appearance of my home.
Fortunately age, passing time, and a brush with death have brought with them a different perspective to what is truly important in this life--
And that is moments like this, with cute little munchkins who give you blue carpet...
Including the moments when they do things that make you want to pull your hair out, their hair out, and anybody else's hair out who may be in close proximity.
What it comes down to for me, is this....
Don't sweat the small stuff.
And while we are on the subject, maybe sometimes we should not sweat the big stuff either.
Life is way too short.
When the "stuff" in your life seems a bit overwhelming and you find yourself breaking out in beads of sweat, remember things like blue carpet, and know that ultimately, everything will be okay.
It may take hours, days, weeks, months, or even years-
but all will be alright in the end.
And keep being thankful for blue carpet.
