Someday I won’t get to share outings like these with my family, today is NOT that day!
Missing my college boy Brady and feeling grateful that I still have these 3 at home to go on family outings with. Compassion experience is a traveling immersive exhibit that allows you to experience other cultures and the realities of global poverty. I appreciate the reminder that so many of my first world problems are actually privileges, not problems! I flip a switch and lights turn on, I have hot water for a shower and clean water to drink, my kids get to go to school instead of go to work; these are just a few of the countless miracles that I take for granted every day. They say life is what you make it and perspective is everything. I could describe my life as having to work too much to afford my 4 kids who are all in some stage of puberty and driving me crazy. Or I could describe my life as being blessed beyond measure to have the ability to support my 4 healthy children that bring me endless joy. I may not have all the first world luxuries that make for the “good life”, but today I am able to see that I have everything that I need to make for my perfect life! Today has been a privilege!
Concentrating so hard that my tongue is sticking out and I still can’t get a decent selfie of myself haha
