Have you ever had a day where you just feel grateful for everything? Today the kids were home from school because schools were closed. Instead of panicking and worrying about what I was going to do with them b/c I had to work, I was thinking of FUN things we could go do. We struck out with our first few options and ended up at the ZOO.
In the past I would have just turned around and headed home because we didn’t want to spend money on the unnecessary things. Especially the constant pleading from the kids for food and toys and the extra “stuff”. I would always say no. You know what I mean?
Well today we just went, on a whim, and we did ALL the extras. We fed the animals, we rode the train, got snacks, and the kids even got to pick out whatever their little hearts desired (with a little direction lol) from the gift shop at the end. That’s my idea of freedom.
WOW! It’s really just the little things that leave me feeling so grateful for my team, my challengers, this opportunity that has blessed my family’s life immensely and I know that it is all by HIS hands and grace that it is possible. It’s not always easy BUT it is ALWAYS worth it.
If you are waiting for me to respond to you…I will get to messages a little later. I promise I see you.
