MIAGD: Thursday’s focus on moments

MIAGD: Make it a great day

I found this fantastic quote:

“Life is about moments; don’t wait for them… CREATE THEM.”

I was raised in a family that created so many moments, colors of all shades. There were issues of concern as with any family, but there were so many brilliant moments we created.

My mother, and her parents, Grandpa Leroy and Grandma Donna, were specialists in laughter and turning the dreariest day’s into our own personal magic kingdoms.

We were spontaneous, too, with activities and trips. A midnight run, thirty miles away, to the nearest Steak ‘N Shake for a shake was not out of the norm.

One of the rules in the house that I decreed as a dad with broken children who’d been through horrors with birth families and who’d gone through the foster care system was to keep laughter as a foundation. Due to their previous circumstances they were accustomed to spontaneity which was seldom positive. However, spontaneity soon came to mean fun adventures.

So today is Thursday, also known as my Friday. Spontaneity is bustling within me and I’m debating just what to do.

Regardless my choice, I’m making it a great day.
