Today we needed a do-over. Yesterday we went to the hospital for my radiation treatment. All of us. The four children, a friend and me. We were going to reward ourselves by going to the movies afterwards.
We didn’t reach our reward. Bickering, sassy-talk and complaining filled the car. I headed straight home. We all took a nice long nap. All of us.
We woke up with better attitudes. We woke up re-focused. We woke up rested.
Today was a do-over. We shopped for shoes. Four children all got new shoes. The reason this deserves accolades is because the first two stores we visited were sold out of our sizes. Four stores. Four pairs of shoes. Four happy children. Four ice cream cones.
That makes a successful summer day. And an awesome do-over.
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace. Ephesians 1:7
