Simple Saturday

For the 1st time in a long time my family was able to get up take our time and chill out.  Now this sounds funny but our lives have been super hectic and it seems like we have been doing so much stuff and that we haven’t been able to just sit and chill. 
On Thursday night, Aden was blessed enough to go to his Grandparents to stay the night, this was a special treat since it was the week but also a treat because his Uncle was there too.  He wanted to stay last night too and after a day filled with a massive migraine for me we decided to let him stay.  Adam and I got to have a dinner together, it was the second night in a row, so we got to really enjoy and connect with each other in a way that we haven’t gotten to do in a while.  This morning we got up, just Adam and I and we went to breakfast with the whole Moody family.  This is something that we haven’t done in a long time.  To go out with all of us, to simply just enjoy being with each other.  It was a great and loving experience.  I feel so blessed to have been allowed into his family, to be treated like I belong, like I am a daughter of theirs.  After breakfast we went to Lowes and to Target and came home.
Now the next thing to do was going to be doing other things, to run around getting school stuff ready or something like that.  However, we got home and we decided that instead a movie was in store.  I fell asleep during it for those that have been talking to me you will find this amazing, I literally slept the WHOLE movie.  Netflix is wonderful, Adam and Aden enjoyed a movie while I enjoyed sitting there sleeping holding my husband’s hand and slept.  They are now playing Super Monkey Ball, I can hear them laughing, cheering and being excited.  It seems for an instance for just a moment, we can laugh and have fun and just be a family.  Not be a group of broken individuals trying to make it through our lives.
The simple things… laughing and playing, watching a movie, just loving on each other….Those are things that we can’t force, they have to just come from the heart
