Adventure- a Words Matter post

Adventure is how I approach everyday. I never know what exactly I am going to see or do. I have four boys and I work in a nursing home. Adventure is everywhere I turn. 

Adventure is waking up on a Saturday and loading your kids up for a trip to a local pumpkin patch. Adventure can simply be sitting down with a elderly resident and enjoying their stories of the past. Adventure is realizing that big or small, every moment matters and should be appreciated to the fullest. 

Living is the greatest adventure of them all. At least that's what I have been told. I think that being a mom is the greatest adventure of them all. But then there is so much more than that in this world. God gave me a great adventure with these four boys of mine. He also gave me the adventure of being a wife, a friend, a confidant, and a Christian. My heart is full and I look forward to the adventure of the everyday. From the child who tells me he loves me to the resident who calls me her "white daughter" to the friend who asks for prayers. Those are the everyday adventures that make life beautiful and make me thankful.

    This is such a great point about the true meaning of adventure. I love your point about how every moment matters and should be appreciated. Thank you for that reminder.
