There’s always a plus side. It’s just sometimes challenging to see it when you’re feeling or looking at the negative side.
Today I found balance. Oh, how I love balance. The yin and the yang is great and where there is balance, there is peace.
I volunteered this morning and had time to chat with my sweet friend, E. I loved catching up and working side by side and having some “me” time.
I did a little cooking and cleaning and chauffeuring. And then I spent the afternoon and evening with my baby girl. We had a girl’s day planned and I loved every minute being with her.
We went and got bubble teas and drank them as we drove over to downtown Campbell. We strolled through the boutiques and shops, looking for back to school clothes and shoes, sharing ideas and laughter. She picked out the latest Rainbow thongs, which are apparently as cool as Uggs, a cute tank top, and two rompers. We got our hair cut and straightened and loved being at the salon together, taking our time with no rush.
We weren’t quite hungry and we weren’t quite ready to go home, so we decided to stop in at Capers to see my friend as we often do after hair cuts nearby. This was a great way to end the day. The food and company was just what we needed.
It was nice to enjoy a day with my teenager (who will always be my baby girl). I am happy that she wanted to spend the day with me and that we both enjoyed each other’s company.
I am lucky and content. Growing up isn’t so bad after all. It’s just another chapter I wasn’t ready to begin and I think it’s gonna be a good one.
