Where did you find your sparkles this week? OK, so “technically” I know it is no longer Sunday. But you see, when I woke up today at about 9:00 am (slacker), it was Sunday and I’m still up so “technically”, it still is Sunday for me. Might tell you how my week’s been going. It’s been busy…it’s always busy! You know I like busy. But I couldn’t neglect to tell y’all what made my week worthwhile…where I found my sparkles! This week’s sparklefest happened at the pool.
While the world was celebrating all of the US wins at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, we were hosting our own events here in The Woods. My babies rocked it! Seriously, they took every medal and they made me giggle. On Saturday, I decided to tune out a bit (OK so I did take my laptop, my DROID, and my camera just.in.case…don’t hate…I am what I am). We headed for the pool…just me and the babies…let the games begin!
The opening ceremonies moved me to tears (of laughter…seriously what is with these kids?).
The competitors are focused!
And excited for the games!
There was synchronized swimming!
A little prep before the diving competition (this cracks.me.up)!
I know I should be nervous! I’m her mother and she is about to do a full dive in to 3 feet of water…stay tuned! I know the outcome!
Bwahaha…the dive that shocked the world!
Nailed it! She knew she won the Gold at this very moment.
And as if THAT weren’t enough, there were even gymnastics!
Yes it was a good day and I was proud of my babies and their medals. But most of all, I was happy I found my sparkles! I spent time with my babies and we needed that! Make every moment count. Find your sparkles where ever they hide. My babies won gold medals this week! How did your world sparkle?
