As I was driving the usual route to Chick Fila: AkA : the street where bored cops sit on their motorcycles looking for someone to pull over because for some reason the speed limit is only 35" I passed the elementary school that I always pass - today when I drove by it was recess. Usually I glance over and look at the kids and think back to my days at recess and how I spent most days either avoiding boys who had crushes on me because I was scared of boys or standing in line to play tether ball only to be beat in the first 10 seconds.
Well today when I passed there was a group of about 10 girls standing at the fence looking at the street yelling "hiiiiii" to each car as it passed. Today was a BEAUTIFUL day so I was driving with my window down to enjoy this day, and not only did I get to see these cute girls standing at the fence, but I got to hear their "hiiiiiiiiii" as I drove by. So naturally I stuck my hand out and waved at them.
The girls immediately broke out into Squeals and Cheers - For some reason the wave of a stranger brought so much delight to their hour of recess.
I could just see them going back and telling their friends that they yelled "hi" to cars driving by and some people even waved to them!
Oh the life of a child. There are many times when I realize that I am getting too stressed out or trying to think things through too much, when I just need to go back to a child-like faith. Remember to let yourself be amused by the little things in life this week - even it is just a wave from a stranger!
In other news....
How could I let a post go by without mentioning the wedding or preparation for the wedding - I mean at this point it consumes my life so something must be said.
Tonight Luke and I went to go get our hair cut and colored (just me) in preparation for our engagement pictures this week. Here is Luke getting his hair cut by Melinda - He is thinking about wearing his hair this way for our wedding.
Then we came home and Melinda practiced how she is going to fix my hair. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE living with my hairstylist?!?!?! It is amazing. I will miss her soo much! (for more reasons than just the fact that she is really good at hair cutting/coloring/fixing pretty much anything you need)
Melinda practicing my hair to show me what it will look like - of course I will love it. Pray for good weather!!! Our pictures are outside.
