golden ticket

Yesterday morning I woke up bright and early with Bubba, he has become and EARLY riser, Hubs had to work, the laundry needed to be washed, and there were dishes in the sink. This was all the makings for a not so fun day. I turned on the news to see that the weather was going to be a beautiful, cloudy, and cool, a perfect Bubba kind of day. I sat there on the sofa with Bubba going back and forth with myself..... well, the dishes will still be here when we get home.... oh, but there is so much to do........ now that the kids are in school I just don't get enough fun time....I need to be better at doing these things. After doing this for a bit I decided that the house work could wait and that we NEEDED to play. We have not been to Disney in FOREVER and I have been so excited to take the kids to see the fun fall decorations. Oh, I just LOVE Disney in the fall!!!! With in no time I had the kids dressed and ready to go, Bubba's bag packed, and we were off! We got there shortly after the park opened and I knew right away that I made the right decision.







When we got home all of the house work was just where I had left it, waiting for me.  I was able to get everything done that needed to be done and still managed to get out of the house to watch the RS broadcast. As I sat there listening to President Dieter F. Uchtdorf speak I couldn't help but feel pleased with my decision to play that morning. "there is something inspiring and sublime about the little forget-me-not flower. I hope it will be a symbol of the little things that make your lives joyful and sweet. Please never forget that you must be patient and compassionate with yourselves, that some sacrifices are better than others, that you need not wait for a golden ticket to be happy. Please never forget that the “why” of the gospel of Jesus Christ will inspire and uplift you. And never forget that your Heavenly Father knows, loves, and cherishes you." I think at times we can be harder on ourselves than anyone else. For a moment in the morning I started to find myself feeling guilty about not having these things already done and wonder if this made me a bad house wife and mother. Oh, heavens "Suzy" would never let her home look like this. Yes, clean laundry is important... I don't want my kid to ever be the smelly one in class BUT at the end of the day it is not my "golden  ticket". My golden ticket is made up of the simple joyful moments like that morning, it is hearing my daughter pray and knowing that she knows her Heavenly Father, it is reading our scriptures as a family, it is laughing as Regan and I try to test out our spanish on each other, it is cuddling Bubba in my arms, it is seeing my children smile, it is having a wonderful husband and bestfriend. I can be so hard on myself as I read other people's blogs and wonder how they manage to do all that they do, while having a perfectly clean home in the back ground, and with out a single hair out of place. wink! I need to remind myself to listen to Elder Uchtdorf's counsel and be patient with myself. If you have a minute head over HERE and check out parts of his talk, it is awesome!!

Thank you for your post today. That is exactly what I needed to hear.

Those who are overly concerned with keeping their surroundings spotless, at the expense of spending spur-of-the-moment fun time with children (who will not be children forever), are missing out on making joyful memories that last a lifetime. You did the right thing. As usual. Because, as a mom who sees the world through the eyes of her children instead of just her own, you get it. Those perfect-for-Bubba days aren't always available. Your flexibility is such a sweet gift to him and Regan. The work will get done. And on those sunny days, when Bubba can't be out, you'll have beautiful pictures of your cloudy, cool day with each other to look at. You are the best kind of role model for other parents!
