This week I came down with strep throat. It’s really no fun(except the popsicle part!). But the good news is that I’ve had lots of little angels watching over our family. Bless them!
While attempting to nap during the day, I turned on UP for my 2-year-old to watch in bed beside me. He’s been loving that movie lately. He watched it several times so I heard it over and over.
Remember Ellie and Carl as little kids. They connected over a statement from one of their heroes, “ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE.”As I rested, that phrase kept going through my head. I thought about how clever little Ellie was… she sure brightened up Carl’s life with her positive attitude and adventurous spirit. Even though she never made it to Paradise Falls, she knew her best adventure was life with Carl. Cute!
What a great example Ellie is of seeking out the good in life…
What if I could teach my children
to be brave enough to try new things… (like climbing to the top of a mountain… or eating a new food… or having courage to befriend someone new…)
to enjoy the ups and downs of the journey of life…
to do good for others…
to have fun and work hard…?
These are the kinds of adventures… and more… I hope for my kids.
