The Simple Things

My daughter went off to camp for the weekend yesterday. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not glad to see her gone, not in the least. However, I know that she have a great time. I also know that she be glad to be out and away from home for a few days. I’m glad she’s getting the opportunity. Wednesday night I took her down to do some last minute shopping. My wife hates it when I take her. She always ends up with extra stuff and we end up spending more money. Yeah, what the heck. I’m only going to have one chance at this.

Today, I had lunch with my son. We went to McDonald’s. He had a gift certificate to use there. Man, he really got a kick out of that. Then we drove around doing mostly nothing. We checked out the crazy sand at Cowells. Wow. I’ve never seen that much sand at Cowells. We went down and check out the cave.

It is the simple things in life that really matter. We’ve all heard the adage about never having heard anyone say they wish they’d spent more time at work but lots of people saying they wish they’d taken more time for family and friends.
