I was reminded yesterday that what appears as a little thing to us insn't always so for the one on the other end. I had a full day of paperwork and needed to run to the store this morning for rice milk and oil. I packed up the kiddos and it was a beautiful day and Big Mister knows that the wal-mart deli has (his favorite) popcorn chicken. So I ask him, "Big Mister want chicken at the park? and you know the response without me telling you, but is was "SUURRE". so we went and got a couple of yogurts, chicken at the deli, and we were off to the park. The boys ate they're lunch and were off to discover the the slides and the dirt.
It wasn't untill numerous hours later when they're daddy came that I really saw how much this little unplanned event at the park meant.
Big Mister was filled with excitement as he was telling his daddy all about his time at the park and I had long forgotten already. I was reminded that it is okay that the dishes haven't been done in 24 hours, the floors need a mopping, and paper work was waiting, the days of our little ones aren't always going to be, they too will grow to be adults and have children and I want them to see that the little things are indeed the most important.
God Bless and have a great weekend,
