Time you enjoyed wasting, was not wasted. - John Lennon
My children where rolling their eyes...and giving me the sad look as soon as their dad left the room. He had said that we had to stay in town for a few more days as we waited for the car to be fixed. They were not excited (I personally do not know why, having no school to do should be a reason to celebrate for any child...)But this wasted time ended up being just what we all needed...
I decided to take the time to meet with old friends...friends that we had not seen in the five months since we moved. It was nice to finally have the time...and the opportunity. So we both visited friends and invited friends over. It was wonderful to see how everyone was doing...and to catch up on old times.
On the way back to the countryside, even my grumpiest child was smiling. They all said a resounding thank you. Their wasted time ended up being the best time ever!
You never know what a day can hold...if you choose to see it that way.
