The nursery in town is a fantastic place not only to buy flowers but also just to visit. First, there are wagons! I was having the world's crummiest day and the Lord provided a very simple but very touching moment. Little Bit and I spied the perfect wagon but it had rained and the wagon was icky. I told Little Bit I wished Momma had thought to bring some paper towels. An older gentleman heard me and kindly found some in his car. I almost cried. Such a simple act of kindness meant so much during such a hard day. It truly blessed me.
Little Bit and I perused the flowers and veggies. In the back of the nursery is what I like to call little boy heaven. There are two giant cages filled with parrots.
There is also a small pond inside filled with koi and two turtles!
Just behind all of this wonderment is an entire outdoor pond area complete with bridges begging to be crossed.
Even in the midst of grumpiness we were able to have a mostly good time. Little Bit did a lot of exploring. He named all the animals we saw and told me what sound they make. We talked about the different insects that we encountered. He burned loads of energy making circles around the outdoor pond. He practiced waiting in line at the check out and he helped Momma put the plants in the back of the station wagon.
It was not a perfect day but it was a day filled with lots of learning and a little bit of grace. Hubs often reminds me that no day will be perfect. I am learning to embrace that. Learning to find that piece of grace buried in even the hardest of days and learning to thank the Lord for all the trials He puts in my path.
