Let Go

About the photo: We took the girls to the Balloon and Wine Festival as a surprise last Sunday morning.  We woke them up early to make it in time for the balloon launch by 7AM, we brought our sweatshirts and took them out for donuts first.  We drove out to Lake Skinner, among a few other families with the same intention.  Giddy and excited we approached the ticket booth to buy our tickets.  And that is where we learned that they wouldn’t be launching that morning due to the fog.  Ohhhh, the disappointment, adult and child alike. The quote, so true, we must let go of these moments so that we can enjoy the rest of the day…a tough sell for the 5 and 6 year old on the car ride home.  So applicable for the bigger picture of life: We can’t fully live the life in the way it is meant to be lived, if we cannot let go of what we pictured it would be.
