I love when things happen that remind you that little things matter….some people call them coincidences, some people call them God winks. I prefer the latter.
Yesterday I had one of those. After being gone for several days (and feeling some mom guilt) I forgot to send something to school that my kindergartner needed. I was annoyed that I had to run home to get it, getting my day off to a late start.
When I got back to the school and dropped off what she needed, I noticed the school was having an assembly. I ran the needed items to my daughter and as I was on my way out, her teacher stopped me to tell me she was giving my girl an award.
I had just enough time to run to my car and get my phone to video her. I captured her surprise and joy on camera and she was ecstatic when she saw I was in the audience watching her get this award that was so important to her six-year-old self!
After I gave her a congratulatory hug, I walked to my car smiling the whole way. Instead of being frustrated at the interruption, I realized this was a divine appointment and a redirection in my day so I didn’t miss this special moment to my little girl.
The moral of the story is; stop and smell the roses…even if you don’t want to. Just take a whiff. You just never know what might be waiting for you!
