What makes a perfect day?

Today was a perfect day in my book. We had no agenda. No place we had to be. We did not travel. We did not see one of the seven wonders of the world. Yes, my husband spent time in his “driver’s seat office,” but still managed a bike ride, a run, a few repair jobs…


My kids played outside for hours on end.
Tyler did 347 laps around this campground on his bicycle.
Amber sang, walked her cat, and made movies.
The sun was shining.
Tyler proved to each of us that he is the air hockey champion of the family.
We ate chocolate chip cookies.
We sat in the hot tub.
We laughed.
My husband and son wrestled on the floor.
We played games.

What is your idea of a perfect day?

Tomorrow there will be work to do, schoolwork to be done, places to go…but today was perfect. That’s why I’m here. That’s how we get through the days that are not perfect. We remember and give thanks for days like today.

Life is a gift. Children are a gift. Children grow up…Live every day.
