Trusting there is a Reason

#1756- I had this thought on Saturday that I needed to go to my friend's house on Tuesday. Yesterday, Monday, I was feeling a little busy/full and I thought, "Well, I don't need to go to my friend's tomorrow," (I hadn't called her yet), but when I thought this my whole body said, "No! That is part of your plan for the week." So today when I arrived there I found out she'd had a rough night (little sleep). "So that is why I'm here today," I packed up her 1 1/2 year old and we went to an indoor playground (new to me).

#1757 -
When we arrived in the ball area there was a big window separating it from a swimming pool where some seniors where doing a water aerobics class. They enjoyed smiling and waving at my companion and he enjoyed watching them. I love places that bring generations together, as opposed to isolating them.

#1758 - For the most part I was pretty hands off, I just kept an eye on him and let him explore. After we had been there for an hour and a 1/2 or he was probably getting tired. At one point he ran back to where I sat watching him and hopped up for a hug and quick rest. This is a beautiful gift that I got to receive because his mother was at home.

#1759 - I didn't bring water for either of us, so I located the drinking fountain. It became obvious pretty quickly he had not used one before. Although I demonstrated he didn't get it, and just wanted to play with the water. So I picked him up, held him to it, used his hand to help me press and got to witness him grow.

#1760 - When it was about time to get ready to go, I wondered if he would want to stay. However, before I mentioned leaving to him, he said, "Bu, bye." So he too knew it was time.
