I don’t often post about my daily happenings, but this weekend proved itself different from most lately. So I thought I would post about it. We had planned on traveling to Rehoboth Beach, DE so SportTman could play in a baseball tournament at Sports at the Beach. We had reserved a hotel, and despite the lack of packing ahead of time, we were planning to leave Friday after school. But then I checked in with the Sports at the Beach website during lunch on Friday……….and the website said the games for Sat. were canceled due to the forcasted rain!!! Canceled………whoa, did I read that right???? Excitement began to brew in my mind…….the thought of a free weekend entered my mind. A call from the head coach soon confirmed my hopes of a free weekend.
So we had a glorious free weekend! It has been over a month since I last had a free weekend! I enjoyed sleeping in a bit on Sat. morning, shopping with my son for some much needed jeans, checking out the new Apple store at our local mall, hanging out with friends and eating pizza, and finally making it to church today. I got a good work out in today, I walked in the beautiful fall weather outside. As I type this we are all sitting in our basement together, watching the World Series.( Go Phillies!)
My weekend did not consist of big, exciting things, but it was a reminder to me that the simple things in life can bring contentment and joy.
