I've just been out picking weeds during Isabella's afternoon nap. I thought of lots of metaphors for life about culling out the negative attitudes and thoughts that strangle out the good things. With the bad cleared away, the good can grow a lot stronger. But the bad also gives you things to learn and room to grow more. And really I was just thinking, what's the point, these weeds will just come back...but I'm not going to let the weeds choke out the flowers in my life! :) I'm loving this friday and looking forward to the weekend. We are going to a wedding tonight and on a date to a movie tomorrow night- which I consider to be a very special treat! We don't really watch TV, but pre-child days, we went to a lot of movies. I'm excited.
We explored a new park today.
The humidity makes Isabella's hair even more wild.
Happy Weekend! I hope you get to share it with family and friends who know you well enough to know the important things about you- like your love of chocolate and are willing to let you pick the last little bits of it off their fingers because it is just that good!
