12 Things I Learned Over Memorial Day Weekend

I hope you all had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend last weekend.  I know I did!  I spent time with good friends, ate delicious food and enjoyed the beautiful sunny weather.

I also learned 12 things which made the weekend all the more enjoyable: 
  1. Take a leap of faith and jump into the deep end of the pool.  If my son can do it (with “floaties” on, of course), then I can do it too.
  2. God is BIG. Bigger than any circumstance, problem or issue that you have ever experienced, are experiencing or will ever experience. 
  3. You can still look and feel attractive in a one-piece bathing suit.  There's no need to try and squeeze into that old two-piece suit anymore.
  4. When you’re on a limited clothing and accessories budget, don’t get all worked up about what you can’t afford.  Get excited about what you can afford.
  5. If something is important to someone you love, then make that something important to you too.
  6. You’re never too old to jump off a diving board.
  7. Take the time to have a conversation with a young teen.  You might find that they are more polite, kind, considerate and compassionate than you imagined them to be.
  8. Leave the fancy camera at home.  Your iPhone will be perfect for capturing those extra special moments.
  9. Spend actual face-to-face time with a friend that you haven't seen in a while.  It’s a whole lot better than just chatting with them on Facebook.
  10. Don’t rush your child to do something they aren’t ready to do.  In their own time, they will get it done.
  11. Give $25 of your personal money and sow a seed into someone else’s dream.  You’ll be glad that you did.
  12. Never complain about having a busy weekend.  Instead, be thankful for your busy weekend because it means that you have things to do and people to share those things with.
