Our kind neighbor gave the kids some toys for their sandbox last weekend. Instead of letting them play in the sandbox, we decided to go to Raccoon Creek so they can also swim if they want to. There were tons of people there swimming, soaking up the sun while summer is still here.While a lot of people were sun bathing, I covered myself with the towel because it was so hot.
My husband and kids had so much fun building castle.
Team building here, go guys make Mama proud hehehe.
Of all the people there, this Mom caught my attention. She have a disabled daughter whom she take in the creek to swim. Whiloe I was watching her, tears came rolling in my cheeks. It made me realized a lot of things. Sometimes, I complain how hard it is to take care of my kids but seeing this Mom made me realized that my work for my two kids is nothing compared to her sacrifices for her daughter.
Believe it or not but right then and there, I prayed and thank God for what I have and ask forgiveness for the times that I complain about things. I also prayed for this Mom for God to continue bless her with strength and compassion to continue on with her life with her daughter
It's amazing how God sends message to everyone of us. Sometimes we think that our situation is incomparable to others but when we look around, we can say that we are still lucky compared to some with miserable lives.
