Yesterday, the words "Can I get an AMEN?!?" l-i-t-e-r-a-l-l-y ran through my head. And then I wrote the cause of that moment down on a scrap piece of paper along with some other AMEN moments. I thought that I'd share them here. With you. Happy weekend, all.
*Getting the urge to surprise your kids. Knowing that you have a B1G1 coupon tucked away for a favorite ice cream joint. Looking the flavor of the day up. Finding out there is some sweet, sweet caramel turtle for the taking. AMEN.
*Having all of the plants on sale when I go to restock my container gardening supply. AMEN.
*A fully fenced in backyard. A handful of outdoor toys stored in the shed. A sandbox about five feet from the kitchen door. And, two girls who are best buds. AMEN.
*Track season winding down. The boy will be home more than two nights a week, coming soon. AMEN.
*Strawberries. Raspberries. Blackberries. On sale. AMEN.
*Season 7 of Psych on Netflix. AMEN.
*Bon Apetit magazine. Time to read it. AMEN.
*Pulling about 70 lbs. of children in a wagon up hills on a walk. In warm weather. AMEN (to part of that).
And which one of these caused my internal flipping for joy? Well, here's a hint: I do appreciate having some time with no one repeatedly bumping me, hanging on me, or otherwise taking up my often non-existent space to do something as indulgent as cook dinner. And I do listening to my girls play together. And the fence...I really dig that, too. Win-win-win.
