A typical Saturday morning for me goes like this…I get up around 6am, I head to Celebration Cinemas in Mt Pleasant and I take a prayer walk around the theater.
Then, I head to the office and I finish preparing for Sunday at Thrive. I’m there as long as it takes me and then I head home and hang with my family!
Well, last Friday night we had our staff Christmas party and we got home pretty late. Needless to say, it was an amazing night of laugher and fun!
I forgot my phone in the van. That meant that I didn’t sent an alarm. Well, I slept in till 7:50am! I can’t remember the last time that happened!
As I was getting ready, Zach said ‘Dad, can I go to work with you?’ I went to say no, and then thought, why am I saying no? I explained that he would have to hang out in my mom’s office on the computer and he loved it!
We went to the theater and we did the prayer walk together. I told him to put on some worship music and talk to God. I did the same thing. It was awesome!
On our drive to the office, we talked about a ton of stuff.
It was the coolest time ever!
We talked about school. Who his best friends are? Why are they his best friends? We talked about his PKU and how he’s doing with that.
Then, we talked about Church. Gosh, this kid loves our Church and of course I love that.
Here’s what amazing…I almost missed it!
It’s not all the time I can bring my kids to work and still get done what I need too, but last Saturday was a day that I could and my first reaction was to say no.
I’m so glad I took a moment and rethought that.
I know the older my kids get, I’m gonna have fewer and fewer of these moments and I have to take advantage of single one now.
I loved my morning my Zach and I looked forward to many more!
