Sunshine.

Yesturday was a beautiful day to me. Here's why:
-THE SUN WAS SHINING! AND IT WAS WARM OUTSIDE!
-I woke up at 7:45 (my choice)
-I played in the park with a 5 year old
-I saw all of the parents with their kids in the park and suddenly got excited about what is yet to come in my life
-Ethan and I went to Julia's bakery. I read Star Wars to him while he successfully made a mess of his chocolate chip muffin
-We played with sidewalk chalk
-I got paid to play
-I ate my leftovers from the spaghetti factory
-I painted my nails -toes and fingers
-I wore flip flops for the first time this year
-I sat out on our front "porch" for an hour and read and wrote in my journal
-I watched to kids down the street eat ice cream sandwhiches and I felt almost giddy thinking about summer
-Todd and I got Jamba Juice and vistited in a park
-Andrea and I went to IHOP at 9:00 last night. What a wonderful thing stuffed french toast is.

My day was wonderful and the perfect reminder that often in the midst of chaos and stress, God will send little things (like sunshine and warmth) to brighten our day (literally) and remind us of the beauty in life. Thanks, God.

Yes! Yummy! It was sooo good. Its just too bad we found the coupon two days later. I guess that means we'll have to go back!
