Sometimes you nail it.
Other times you talk for days about seeing their favorite film with their favorite hero at movies in the park...only to arrive to an empty park and realize it’s next month. Tonight was that night.
Yet life is what you make of it. As hard as these moments are, I’m glad they come. It’s a chance I can teach him to make the best of a situation. How there is always another way. Moments like this teach him sometimes the smaller less glamorous is endlessly more special. Tonight we are grateful for things like a fully charged laptop, a truck to snuggle in and an old Halloween costume that is treasured on a daily basis.
Sometimes you win and sometimes you loose. And sometimes you get both in the same day. Tonight was also that night.
Here’s to forging our own way, making our own memories and never leaving the special out of life.
