Yesterday morning Rachel and I decided to let Colin and Erin sleep in and relax into the day. So we headed out to Robeks and had Smoothies together. We talked about how sunny it was, how the smoothies tasted, something Ms. Mary Lee taught war in school yesterday, that a friend hurt her but Rachel was a "good" friend and told her "that wasn't nice, don't do it again!" That one was my favorite, by far.
Really though we just watched people come and go, chatted a little, and enjoyed the morning. It was one of the best mornings I've ever had. It made the entire rest of the day seem almost inconsequential. If there was any problem or anything changed what I'd had planned (like that I worked 6 hours instead of my planned 1.5) it just didn't matter.
Yesterday wasn't a particularly good or special day overall. Starting it off so well… Now the entire day feels incredibly memorable.
How we start the day defines how we live the rest of it.
