we’re glory gazin’
chowing down on Chick-fil-a
the sky- our dessert!
Having two teenage daughters is… interesting. I never quite know what to expect. One minute they are screaming at each other, the next minute they are hysterically laughing together. It is an adventure, for sure!
The other day, I picked the girls up early from school due to an orthodontist appointment. Hubby was out of town for work, so I decided to stay in town and take the girls to Chick-fil-a for dinner after our appointment. As we pulled through the drive thru, I noticed the sky was beginning to change colors.
When you feed your teenagers Chick-Fil-a, they will smile and agree to anything! They were in the best mood. Let’s watch the sunset, I suggest. Since they were happily eating CFA , they naturally obliged. As we drove around, my youngest daughter stuck her hand out of the window-
Look, Mom- even the sun is shining down on my Chick-Fil-A milkshake!
lol. I had to chuckle at that one!
We parked in the shopping center across the street and took in the beautiful evening. The girls were hysterically laughing at each other, taking “selfies” because it was “glow time” (sunset lighting) and I thought my heart would burst. Any strife that may have occurred earlier in the day paled in comparison to the joy we experienced in the car. It was the perfect evening.
On the ride home, I literally cried from laughing so hard at the girls. They can be so funny sometimes.
It has been way too long since I have laughed like that.
I never realized how quickly their childhood would fly by.
I am savoring every moment-
and realizing how short life is!
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
