Sometimes when you have the whole day ahead of you all planned out...Someone just may have a different plan for you. I had big plans today...dump, walk, beach. In that order. After dealing with a HUGE leak in my basement from the sprinkler system...loaded the car for the dump..... this happened. SERVICE ENGINE. So what did Griffy and I do?
I was able to take a quick picture of the Robins Eggs in our shrub out front. Mama Bird was not happy. I don't blame her. I wouldn't want some big honkin human messin with my babies either. Then we went out back to hang out in the sun.
Lately we've been trying to teach the kids that in life...it's not WHAT your dealt with...it's HOW you deal with it. Very often easier said than done depending on the hand you've been dealt. But, you have a choice. You can handle it by kicking and screaming...or with grace and dignity. Believe me, many days I want to...and have...kicked and screamed. I'm still learning too. And in the process...trying to be a role model for my own children in how they'll handle LIFE.
I think of my Mom today and how she's handled this latest hand she's been dealt with. I'm proud of you Mom.
Hi there! I'm a wife to a great guy. When we met I told him I wanted to stay home and raise kids. He has let me do just that. And now 19 years, 4 kids, and 7 moves later we've started another adventure. We just moved to Paris! I like wearing aprons and pearls and am usually roasting something in the oven. I would happily go back to the 1950's but I'd miss the internet too much. This is a blog about my life.
