1.) The Simple Things
I work hard to keep my kids occupied and happy.
We’ve been to museums and zoos. We’ve stayed with friends and visited hotels. We’ve done fairs and parades and Disneyland.
Last weekend, as an after thought on our way home from an event, I decided to detour quickly and take the kids to a spectacular view of a waterfall they hadn’t seen before.
Admittedly I wasn’t really “in the moment” as I day dreamed about the things I have left to check off my list with them.
Let’s see…camping and hiking, ice skating, a cooking class, glass blowing lessons, horse back riding…what else will make them happy? How else can I be the best mom ever?
But as I stood there thinking about all the things I could do to make them busier and happier (how can I top a surprise trip to Disneyland?), Maile stared on at the falls and to no one in particular, quietly said, “this is the best day of my life.”
So much for plans.
You win God.
