Day 17: 31 Days of Being Present

Today has been a pretty busy day. We are leaving for Disneyland in two days so I am getting ready. Shopping, packing, cleaning, washing dogs. You know, all the stuff that goes with leaving your house. Why am I washing the dogs? Cause I have a dog/house sitter and these pups are stinky. I feel I owe her that much at least! So aside from gearing up for a trip, crafting, blogging and the kids school stuff — I ended up with visitors this afternoon. It was actually pretty funny. I was down to one child {the other one went fishing with his buddy}. My friend Jeff was coming over to put a luggage rack thingy {don’t I sound technical? Ha ha} on my van. Anyway, his wife, Jenelle, {who is this amazing kind of friend that any girl would be lucky to have} had driven separate and was heading home but I knew she wanted to come over. I know her so well! So anyway, I said, “Come on over”. She didn’t hesitate. So that happened which was awesome cause I planted my butt on the couch and just hung out. A rare but beautiful thing! Then I got a call from my friend Lisa who needed someone to watch her son so I said, “Of course’. So by this point there are now 4 happy children in my house and Legos everywhere. Well that wound down and Jenelle and her family left as Lisa and her hubby showed up. It felt like a revolving door and as much as I thought I was going to be prepping for my trip — I didn’t and I loved every second of being with people who mean so much to me. So the point of this day of being present? Friendship. Sometimes you put other things aside to spend quality time with people that make a difference in your world. I’m feeling pretty thankful for that ๐Ÿ™‚
