Rafting Life Lessons

2018 rafting.jpg

This afternoon went down to the river for a little white water rafting☀️At one point we had a chance to get out and swim. One child was hesitant. I asked “if they got to the end of the rafting trip if they will have wished they got in?” The answer was, “yes.” So rather than trying to talk my child into doing it, I walked the walk and jumped in the cold water myself. Within seconds, they were in too💝

I share this with you for the lessons I learned in this moment, in hopes it may encourage another person today.

First, I invite you to join me to...

Pause. Breathe. Pray.

And may we take a moment to absorb the truth in these life lessons...

1. Let’s not get to the end of the ride wishing we had done things. May we do things while you have the opportunity to.

2. As a parent, my words come second to my actions.

(I wish every moment of parenting was as clear for me as today’s was😊🙃😂)

Here’s to living life with a full heart and loving one another where we are at💕🙏💕

With love and hope,

P.S. If anyone is planning to go Rafting in the Smokies, ask for Johnny B.! He was a great rafting guide🥇
