Last night for example was EXACTLY what I needed to do, a friend asked me on a whim to come to the park with her kiddo after work and play with my boys and then grab some dinner and relax at her house...I instantly thought "no way can i do that tonight, I didnt' plan on it. Therefore I don't have a change of play clothes for the boys and I, I'll be in my work clothes, I didn't pack pj;'s for the boys for the ride home, I had plans of what needed done around the house tonight that i should do." But you know what i did instead...I left work, grabbed all of us a yummy drink (my last Starbucks for the next 40 days!), grabbed up my excited boys, and headed to the park to play!
I am a big believer in "Everything happens for a reason". God puts people in your life for a reason...this sweet friend of mine is opposite of me in many ways. She is creative and crafty where i am not, she is most always living in the here and now when I am not, she makes me step outside of myself and just BE ME when she knows i need to, she is that person that i know i can call upon anytime of any day and she would never judge. I realized today in Mass that God has placed me where i need to be in a BIG way. Thank you to my A Girl.
