Sometimes they are also from your husband!
Late September we took a weekend road trip to Buena Vista, CO. Josh’s Dad spent some time growing up there. It was an interesting venture to experience this little town through our own first time eyes, while also thinking about Josh’s Dad standing in the same place, at a different time. I love looking into a time paradox like that one.
The trip included about 4 hours of driving, lunch, a very chilly walk around Buena Vista’s down town, a look at some calm white water rapids, an hour in the hot springs during icy showers, and seeing fall for the first time! It ended with a rainy Mexican dinner near home.
Oh, also it included a really open and equally gross changing room..,, but I’m working on forgetting that completely 😂
It’s easy as people and parents to forget that some days are simply crappy. Some moods are uforseable and sometimes we get a little lost. I forget this sometimes with strangers at the grocery store, or with people on the road and often with myself. I even forget with my son and my husband. My husband is a minister though, so he should be able to handle his own s**t existentially. I’m just kidding, we all have simply crappy days!
Time to explore the idea that a question might have far more meaning and impact than an answer.
What might have happened in their life today?
What might have happened in their mind today?
The answer today wasn’t Flamin hot funyuns and tea, those just happened while I was asking more questions.
How can I let this person know I care?
I don’t always have an answer, but I can always find a question.
