Today is Wednesday, which means it’s time for the Inspirational word of the week.
Fun (noun) something that provides enjoyment or amusement. (verb) to joke or tease (adjective) whimsical or flamboyant.
Last week, after I finished writing the first post for Fun, Blake took me out on the boat. While we were out there, Garrett called us to crow about the fact that he had completely beaten the video game he had been playing. He was very excited and when I handed the phone over to his father, he started talking about how he beat all the different levels. Blake said “Hey! Don’t tell me! I haven’t gotten to play it yet, and if you tell me too much, it won’t be any fun!”
Next we stopped at the island to let Tootsie play in the water. She just loves to search for a rock. In fact,
she’ll spend hours searching, if we let her. I’m not sure who has more fun, the dog or the people who get to watch her!
To be perfectly honest, I really do get frustrated sometimes. Although I’d like to think that life can always be fun and wonderful, sometimes it’s just not. I don’t always know the right thing to do or say. Responsibilities pile up, dishes never go away and there’s always somebody unhappy about something.
Sometimes I wish I had a magic crystal ball so that I could see into the future. I’d love to know that my efforts aren’t being wasted and that everything is going to be all right.
But really, life isn’t about tomorrow, or yesterday. It’s about right now. Life unfolds and is created by how we handle the day to day. It’s important to remember to relax. Don’t waste time worrying about negative thoughts and visions. Focus on the NOW because it’s really no fun knowing how everything works ahead of time.
My darling husband and wonderful son are waiting patiently to watch a movie with me. So I’m going to go have fun hanging out with them.
I hope, my friendly blog reader, that you can go have fun with the people who mean the most to you.
What’s your idea of fun? Who do you get to have fun with this week?
I’d love to read your thoughts in the comments.
Have a great week and I’ll be back on Monday with the Inspirational song of the week.
