So May has entered our lives. How did your Labour Day go? I was filled with thankfulness as I wrote this post. Today was great. The hubs was around and there wasn’t any schedule to adhere to. No enrichment classes, no other obligations to attend to. It’s a day of rest and fun.
I have always wanted to have a picnic by the beach and was only too glad that the hubs suggested it and invited our CG and friends along.
If it’s just us, we would normally play the frisbee and kicked a ball or two. But because we had friends joining us, our version of a Beach day expanded to…
involve sand play. So the girl…and the boy were elated to be allowed to play because the mom had closed both eyes. You can imagine their joy.
The boy who, on several occasions, displayed fear of sand, now enjoyed it tremendously. Such a wonderful sight to behold.
Whenever there are moms, you will not lack food. Okay, I must qualify that I brought nothing to the picnic except for a few cans of cold drinks. These two moms especially the one in the middle, prepared so much homecooked food that it doesn’t make sense for me to bring more. This is an awful excuse, of course. But anyway, one thing’s for sure – we are immensely blessed.
See how my kids have benefitted from the kind gestures of the other moms?
The girl had her first real encounter with kite-flying. She was thrilled, especially when she saw her kite soaring in the sky.
See those smiles on the girls’ faces? Priceless.
It’s a wonderful first day of May and it has started well. May we be rid of sickness and tantrums (haha) and be filled with the presence of God and joy each day.
