Well times have changed for me a little over the years. Last night was a great example of my now Friday night. I dropped a couple off to high school sports and the rest were all home with some of their friends and their kids. My Friday night started out dropping off kids, and watching a movie alone. Soon enough the house was filling with excitement. The older kids were home and the grandkids running around, I quickly completed dinner and everyone quickly got their food. The count at that point was around 14 people.
Some were just talking about business, some about the basketball game coming on. Then there were the two little grandkids riding their toys from the kitchen to the family room. They laughed and yelled every second of the time. Sometimes they would jump off and take a bite of food and dance around the room. Sometimes they would give me a hug and smile at me in pure excitement and love. I loved every minute of my Friday night. Wow what a thrill to see everyone so happy and having a good time.
My lesson could be about being flexible and enjoying the family and guest. However, I truly loved the most was watching those little one dance and yell in excitement. That is what I want to feel that much joy and excitement. As I thought about that I remembered you can always change your thoughts and live in pure joy and love every day.
Many Blessings to you and yours.
