|Grandbabies playing in the rain!|
I may not have the money to go away on a vacation to the beach like some people have but I am blessed to have a little 3 foot deep pool in my backyard where I can spend time with my family all summer long. When we get in the pool, my teenager talks to me and shares his heart; my about to be married daughter asks me questions; I get to spend precious time with my older son and his wife; I get to hear the squeals of laughter from my grands and my hubby and I find a way to reconnect.
People always go to the snow shack, the frigid frog etc; we make homemade ice cream and snowcones.
People go to this movie or that theme park. We go to the free movies in the mornings with the kiddos; we go to redbox and come home and pop some popcorn and pay less than the cost of one of us to go to the movies and we don't have to worry about cellphones going off or people talking. We eat together, my whole family every Sunday night-we grill out, we make our own homemade pizzas etc.
Now, is it wrong to do any of that other stuff? No, but though I might not can afford to do some of them, I can enjoy the small things we can do at home. I can complain or I can appreciate what God has given me.
I can complain about what I can't do and how I am bored or I can make memories. I am going to play in the rain, take a walk, splash in the pool, I am making memories!
