8:40 PM Hunter reflecting on the day: “We spent ALL our day having fun!”
Just a day planned together.
Far too many days are spent being ruled by a schedule. There is always somewhere to be and a time you need to be there by.
Far too often I find myself saying no to something my kids ask because that is easier.
Today we had a plan, but it was flexible. We had an agenda, but it was simply to have fun together.
What’s that Hunter? You want to stop at Super 1 Foods and get some
sourdough bread? Okay, lets do that! Hey, lets get some candy while we
Lets draw some pictures for your brother Sawyer, and float them up to the sky in balloons!
We should probably have lunch at Red Robin so we can get some free balloons!
Oh wait! These pictures are heavy; we are going to need to get more
balloons (lets send Hunter back into Red Robin to ask for more)!
Good bye balloons!
Stop to pick some flowers.
Throw pebbles in the water.
Ride on a carousel.
Feed the ducks.
Enjoy the view.
Pick some more flowers.
Get some candy.
You want to take your shoes and socks off while you swing Ashlyn? Sounds good, lets get them off!
Enjoy the view of the river.
Enjoy each other.
Take time to enjoy the flowers.
Go to outer space (via the wonder of IMAX) and marvel at God’s phenomenal universe.
Order a milkshake.
Eat good food. Talk about Sawyer.
Catch up on missed naps on the ride home.
Count our blessings.
There are a few advantages to taking the journey into the shadow of death. One is that you can appreciate the light more deeply than ever before.
We want to offer our heartfelt thanks to all the support you have shown us during this last week. Your prayers, emails, calls and letters have given us encouragement and humbled us. We truly are not in this journey alone. Thank you for walking with us.
