This little interchange between Seth and me happened a while ago, but I still remember it clearly and think of it almost daily so I thought I'd share it. A little background...whenever we go somewhere, do something or see someone, Seth always says it's ____ day (fill in the blank with names of family, friends, places, etc.). So say we're going to the park...it's "park day." As we drive up the hill towards our house, you can, on a clear day, see Mt. Rainier off in the distance and what a magnificent sight it is. So one day in the car, as we're driving up the hill:
me: Seth, do you think we'll be able to see the mountain today?
Seth: Yah! It's mountain day!
(as we get to the top of the hill, the mountain is hidden behind low clouds and cannot be seen at all)
me: Oh no! We can't see the mountain! It's covered up by all the clouds!
Seth: Yay! It's cloud day!
How I wish I were always able to see the good in every situation this same way. So we couldn't see the mountain. So what? We got to see some lovely clouds in all shades of gray. :-)
Here's my little shining star:
And here's his pretty little sister at 5 weeks, all ready for church.
Life is good.
