The Very Ordianry Situation
It was bed time and I was tired, but when I got home my husband and children were out on the trampoline having a popsicle. The first thought I had was to run out there with my star laser and pillow for a star party and maybe even sleep out. My second thought was something like, “I can’t believe Spencer is keeping the children out so late and giving them sugar before bed. I better get them in here.”
My mind started comparing thought number one to thought number two to try to make a decision on what to do. I thought about the kind of mother I am and the most important things in life. I thought about how our family is working toward a family vision. The vision is unity, love, fun, and friendship.
Which choice would show those things to my spouse and my children? I ran into my room, changed my clothes, got my laser, a pillow, a blanket, said my evening prayers and ran outside for a star party and family sleep out. The trampoline wasn’t that comfortable, but the company sure was. Time is temporary…Family is forever.
