I found my Bliss "Someday"



For a couple of months now, every time the kids and I drive by this local park we remark that we need to go play there "someday". Well, today on our way out of the local library my son asked innocently enough "Do you think today could be someday?" I looked at him and thought, why not? How hard would it be to just pick up some dinner and drive over to the park? I was equipped with reading material, my husband could call if he needed us, the older girls would be just as happy reading outside than in their rooms. "Sure! Today is someday! " I replied. So we drove through Sonic and picked up some burgers and Cherry Limeades (Vanilla Diet Coke for me) and we drove to the park of our dreams. The park, a fairly new one, was such a nice surprise. From the road we had spied a few play items, but once we drove up we were happy to spot tennis courts (good news for hubby and I since we are always trying to find new courts) clean and well maintained bathrooms, vending machines, various playground apparatus and nice picnic tables. Once we ate, I settled in to let the kids play while I read...but each time I picked up the book to read, I would find myself watching the two youngest play. They were having so much fun, such joy in their eyes and laughter, that I realized that I had found "A Place Called Bliss" right here, right now. I'm so glad that today turned out to be Someday!

This is beautiful. How often we push aside days like this in favor of busy-ness and work. Glad that Someday came today for you. The best kind of day there is.
