I’m on a roll with waking up overly early lately. Today I was up at 3:00 and couldn’t fall back asleep so I laid on the couch for a bit and then just got up and read my Bible and drank coffee.
Sadie woke up at 4:30 because her ringworm rash was hurting her, so we took care of that and I put her back to bed. Now here I am! I predict I will completely crash around lunchtime 😂
Pet sitting yesterday went well! Jimmy came home from work to three dogs just staring at him like hey, what’s up? Sadie kept saying “We have more huskies!” except she pronounces it “huck-sies” which is the cutest.
We had church in the evening and I got Sadie all gussied up in a new romper my mom gave her (thanks mom!). I am slightly obsessed with dressing her in rompers. I’m sure that will change when we potty train, though 😆
We quickly ate dinner and then got on the parkway to drive to Bible study and hit killer traffic. I fell asleep, but I think we sat for like 30-45 minutes?! Eventually we realized that church would end 15 minutes after we arrived, so we turned around and headed for a local park to let Sadie run around after sitting in the car for so long.
She had fun running around at the park with other kids and kept saying “This is awesome!” 🙂
As we were leaving the park, we walked down a big hill and the sun was beginning to set. Sadie was between Jimmy and I, holding our hands and giggling as we swung her. It was one of those moments that I mentally wanted to capture and save forever. One of those moments that had me thanking God for His blessings.
The day wasn’t perfect–there was a cat scratch, a crabby toddler who woke up too early, and traffic–but that moment? That was perfect. So much of life is choosing to reflect on what is hard or choosing to reflect on what is good. Making the most of unexpected traffic, or being bummed out and frustrated by situations beyond our control. I’m definitely not a pro at it but I’m learning!
Well, I’m off to bake some granola and probably fall asleep at noon 😉
