Ride the carosel .. even though it’s not usually open till 11:00 and it was 9:45. Alex, little man told aunt nenn with great faith THEY WILL open it.. and if not aunt nenn you have a key. And you know what.. it was open. As we spun round and round my heart was so full .. STILL.. watching the wonder through the eyes of a child who believed the door would open and it was.
Play in these fountains. Sure I was fully dressed.. sure it would make we wet and drippy and sticky.. but STILL.. I sure woud not miss out on this. And little man Alex would take my aunt and say.. the middle (where the water squirts high) is scary.. but STILL.. holding aunt nenns hand I can get in there and laugh and squeal .. so we laugh and sqeal together.. and STILL.. my heart is still.. drinking in the joy of these moments. It does not matter what bills are due, who is calling the cell phone.. that I have class in two hours.. STILL.. BE still and Know that these are the living alive moments I don’t want to miss. And that Jesus is in the midst of us.. smiling as we laughed as the water went high!
And then yummy donuts .. homemade from Julie Darling Donuts.. the BEST donut place in town. Every Thursday me and little man have a date there. I get the pancakes and bacon donut (the BEST) alex gets whatever has the most sprinkles. This week as we are getting ready to leave the amazing people that work there said you want to bring them back to watch the donuts cook? The boys LOVED it.. aunt nenn and michelle LOVED it just as much. Still.. we were about to leave out the door but we took time to watch
(Go eat there!)
