...a few minutes ago, I was enjoying a bowl of cereal with the Bubby. He turned around and something caught his eye. He got very excited, "Wook, MomMom...(fish)!" (Noble doesn't actually say fish...it's more of this weird nasal sh up in his head.) It took me a minute to figure out what he was talking about--it was the magazine box. I guess I never really look at it anymore, but sure enough, there's a fish on there.
Back when we were first married and James and Dad still fished every weekend (or close to it!), I found this old apple crate at an estate auction and brought it home for magazines. We've used it for so long, it's just part of the landscape. It took a 2 year old to make me take a minute and appreciate that box again after all these years...it's been a busy week and there's no signs of a slow down coming, but I'm grateful for a reminder that the stuff that's keeping me busy isn't the important stuff, after all. It just finances the important stuff. :)
Here's to taking a second look at YOUR world today!
