Today, I’m thankful for:
- Three days of school left.
- Two days of football camp.
- Two class picnics.
- Two amazing teachers
- One awesome bus driver
- One massive field trip to the zoo (well…maybe).
- One big bottle of ibuprofen.
- And finally on Friday, a big day at the beach with friends. Summer is almost here!!
I don’t want the summer to pass without spending time with all the people we love. So I decided to start it off right – by inviting all the moms I could think of to bring their kids to a nearby lake and beach on Friday. It was a spontaneous idea. I knew if I thought about it too much I’d shorten my invite list, or not do it at all. You probably never think these things, but I do –
“Oh, she wouldn’t be interested in hanging out with me.”
“That person is probably busy anyway.”
“Maybe this is a dumb idea. Yeah, I shouldn’t even try it. What was I thinking?”
Before I know it, I’ve talked myself (via my insecure, introverted, inner voice) out of something that could have been really cool. I do that more times than I’d like to admit.
And so, I squinted my eyes, scrunched my nose, and typed more quickly than the inner voice could talk. And know what? A few moms are going to come. And it’s an awesome group of women who don’t all know each other, and I am so, so excited to spend a day sitting in the sun watching kids play, getting to know some other moms better, and drinking in that first day of summer. I’m so thankful that I pushed through that insecurity and reached out.
What are you thankful for this week? How do you plan to make the most out of your summer?
