Today when I pick Griffin up from camp I will also be picking up one of his friends. The two of them will come back to our house and Griffin’s friend will stay and have dinner with us.
Why am I telling you this, what’s the big deal?
Well even though Griffin is a teenager and a very sweet kid, this has never happened. Sure we’ve gotten together with family friends in the past but this simple act of me picking Griffin and his friend up and then having his friend stay over for dinner is something that has never happened. It’s wonderful and a cause for us to celebrate.
It’s moments like this, moments that I’m sure I would take for granted if our lives were different, that have me beaming with joy.
A simple moment is never simple in our family and for that I am truly grateful!
