Sunday Blessings...Enjoying the Journey
Last night our congregation at Church had a Halloween Dinner and Carnival for the families. It was so cute the scores of princesses, ninjas, superheroes etc. (In case you are wondering I dressed up as Julia Child) These kids were so excited to be there and they were enjoying every minute of the fun. I watched the sugar cookie station for awhile, it was getting messy very quickly as you can imagine. The adults were worried about the frosting getting everywhere, and it staining the costumes just days before Halloween, and so many other things, yet the kids they didn't care if frosting spilled on them or got ground into their costumes with no hope of coming out. All they wanted was to make the cookie and enjoy the experience. They reminded me how important it is to enjoy the process, not just fuss about the end result. Kids are amazing, they teach me so much all the time, oh that I had their energy and joy all of the time.
