Today is kind of a blah day. Woke up fine, let the kids sleep a little longer, and drank my coffee without any interruptions. Ahh, nice. After I got my son on the bus, I got dressed and ready to head out to Beach Bounce with my daughter. We were supposed to meet some friends there, but one by one they cancelled on us. No big deal really, except I wanted to stay home and my little girl was dressed and ready, with her coat and shoes on, holding her lunch box. How could I tell her we weren't going?
The sun is not out, and it is warm so all the snow is melting and it is just wet and gross. I haven't been feeling to hot, my back is really killing me and I am at the end of a "single mommy" week. Perfect day to stay in and watch movies and do nothing. But no, out we went.
We were there a hour before anyone else showed up and she quickly made friends with another little girl. I sat and watched her and she smiled the whole time. Laughed and giggled, without a care in the world. It was beautiful to watch. Every so often she would come over and hug me, she is just so sweet.
I can't really say I was bored the whole time, because she made it exciting to just sit there. I feel lucky to have been able to do this with her today. We are home now and we are watching movies in front of the fire. Yes, it is a blah day, there is still no sun shining and it is a little cold, but when I look at her all I see is sunshine.
Run strong, think big!
