right in the middle of my complaining, my anger, my frustration and discontent, we took the kids to lunch on the river. it was perfect, a break that was much needed. it was almost...serene.
the weather was almost perfect and we were able to eat our meal outside
the kids were all so well behaved i thought maybe we have accidentally took the neighbor's kids
there was no complaining, yelling or crying
we watched the water, a few boats, a barge, some birds and skipped rocks
i think our new favorite thing to do on a nice day is to eat cheeseburgers on the river.
if i could truly have captured serenity, it would have been the way i felt when i came home from shopping and realized all the things my husband did while i was gone. it was almost amazing and everything that i spent the day complaining about vanished. that was truly the most serene moment of the day.
