There’s been a strong shift in the wind. I can feel it, and it all feels so good.
It all started with hiring a cleaning lady to come help us with our house every other week. It is a bill we hate to pay, but we found that we were spending our entire weekends cleaning. Our kids would be camped out in front of the TV for hours while we dusted, and vacuumed and scoured. That is no way to spend a childhood.
With that one significant change, other changes began to happen: new job, new activities, new ways to spend our time….it was like a snowball effect.
Yesterday, was the perfect family day that reflected it all.
We began our morning by going to see a family music concert at the toy store down the road. One of the children we teach was performing, and it was awesome to show our support and to share it with our kids. Afterwards, we hurried home to meet up with the piano teacher, and my daughter had her very first piano lesson, which was a big success.
Finally, we headed to the park for my son’s very first soccer game. We spent the hour in the sun cheering on “The Mustangs.” Boy…did those kids work hard! They lost the game, but not without a lot of effort. Check out my little soccer hero! He’s front and center in the white shirt fully involved and concentrating on that ball. I’m so proud of him!
Yesterday was perfect in every way. We spent the whole day as a family doing things that were fun and good for us. That is the way it’s supposed to be, and hallelujah to that shift in the wind that has brought about such good things!
My song of the day is David Bowie’s “Changes,” because change can be a really good thing. Click HERE to hear the song on Youtube, and please be assured that these changes are ones that we are embracing head on!
