We were supposed to go to opening day at Hershey Gardens today, but it was too raw and gray so we took Isabelle on the ride at Chocolate World instead.
We were supposed to spend most of the past week with my parents, but my mom was sick so we went to my in-laws’ house instead.
In fact, there are a lot of things that haven’t been turning out as expected lately. What this week has taught me is to look for the silver lining. While I would’ve loved to spend the morning at the Garden, we managed to have a great time at Chocolate World. And while I missed spending Passover with my parents, I grateful my mom is on the road to recovery. Plus, we still got away for a few days, which have us the have to see family, friends, and spend time in Manhattan.
My husband heads back to work tomorrow, which is bittersweet. His job is important to our family so I’m thankful he heads back to work tomorrow after a week-long vacation. That said, I relished the family time we had together this past week, even if it didn’t turn out as expected. Perhaps that is why my heart feels heavy and I’m wishing this day, this ordinary, chilly, Thursday would last just a little bit longer.
