Three years ago on August 7, 2012 we had our first backyard campfire…
(It was a pretty big deal after living in an apartment for 5 years!)
To some, this may look like a bleak depressing sandy desert backyard.
But challenges often appear that way when you first get a good look.
Overwhelming. Insurmountable. Hopeless. And Depressing.
To me… this was a blank canvas…
An opportunity. A new beginning. A challenge. And freedom.
All I had to do was take baby steps towards a dream.
Tonight we are going to be enjoying hot dogs and smores to celebrate the end of summer.
It will be a wonderful time to savor our blessings and be thankful.
I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather be.
What is your favorite thing to do at home with your family?
Do you ever camp out in your backyard?
