Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly celebration created by VikLit and now hosted by Lexa Cain to celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large. You can learn all about it and sign up for it here.
This week I’m celebrating Family! We had a great time visiting with my parents and my brother and his family up from PA. We watched the Olympics, played indoor and outdoor games, and went go-kart racing, indoor rock climbing, and mini-golfing. The kids beat the heat and humidity with a water balloon fight and by spraying each other with a garden hose.
We also helped fix my Dad’s dryer that quit working in the middle of everything. It was a fun collaborative effort, and after replacing one small part, the dryer was up and running again like new.
Times like these are precious. So often we get caught up in the busyness and hassle of everyday life that we forget what matters most. I learned a long time ago that life is short, and every moment spent with family and friends is to be treasured.
What other celebrations are going on out there?
