Tonight, I sat and watched my daughter eat sushi. I tried for years to encourage her to try it. Just last weekend she decided to try it and found out she loved it.
I remember telling her, “Told you so.”
Of course, that first night she became ill, but I think it may have been a quick flu bug.
Nonetheless, she ordered it again tonight, excited to eat more.
Later, we went to see movie, Before I Fall.
My love for my husband, daughter, and family is my purpose.
The day’s events spin in my mind.
Watching my daughter cry over a test because she could not understand the math concepts.
The laughter of grands playing in the backyard.
My husband’s laughter and joy spreading over his face.
Yes, this is a day I would gladly repeat, except for the melt down over math.
I learned a lot. I need to be more attentive and loving.
I need to grow as a wife, mother, and grandmother.
Purpose and love intertwine in a circle of repetition. These are the facets of life that make it worth living and even if called upon dieing.
Some thoughts to ponder:
What lessons would you learn from repeating a single day in your life over and over again? Which day would you choose. What do you feel is the purpose of your life?
