I am late in posting my fifth day of gratitude, but for a good reason. The boys and I made a spur of the moment day trip back home to Broken Arrow, OK. I didn’t take my laptop and even though I have the WordPress app on my phone, I’m not a fan of actually posting from it.
I was busy anyways!
I interviewed for a job last Tuesday and I am supposed to hear back sometime by Wednesday. I am not great at waiting on those results. Instead of trying to entertain both boys while my mind was racing at home, I decided a quick trip in to see family and maybe a friend would be a great way to spend the day.
It was! The boys got to spend quality time with their Mima (great-grandmother), I had lunch with a friend from school, and we had a family dinner out with the larger, extended family, which included 4 dolls under the age of 4 to love on! It was a long day, but it was a huge blessing as well.
As we pulled in to the driveway at 10:20, both boys exhausted and my eyes drooping, my heart felt lighter and I was thankful to have family close enough to visit on the spur of the moment (even if it is 1 1/2 hrs away!) The drive isn’t bad and this time of year is lined with my favorite view of gorgeous fall foliage. It was quite relaxing.
So, I may be a day late, but I am extra grateful that I can travel the road home and be welcomed with loving arms whenever the mood strikes, at least for now.
