Just Because

8:21 AM

I wanted to sleep in this morning, but it just didn’t happen. I got up early, had my quiet time and went out to milk the goat. When I came back in, I decided that I would serve breakfast in bed to everyone. I made up some eggs to serve along with the monkey bread that my sister Rose had made the night before and started some water to boiling. Then I placed a tea cup and china plate on each tray. As you can see, I had a lot of fun.

Rose was already up so she helped me put the food on the trays and serve them to each family member. I gave each one of them their tray of food and Rose came behind me with tea bags and salt and pepper. It was a great way to start of our morning.

You know, I think that one of the most important things that my parents taught me is that you should do fun things, just because. Have a nice meal and use the china plates not just for special occasions, but just because you want to. Spend some time with your siblings, just to show you care. Take a walk, just to enjoy God’s creation. Take the time today to do something special, just because.

  6. The 'just because' moments are the things that make life special. In my family, 'just because' moments include taking a drive all over the backroads and hills of our village for no reason, making fancy desserts even if we don't have company, sitting down as a family and playing games or watching a move just because, random water fights in the Summer that get everyone soaking, and laughing 'till there's tears in your eyes and your stomach hurts. None of those things are usually planned, they just happen, and those unexpected moments are the ones we always cherish. Good post, Sarah!
