This morning, I hit the snooze button one too many times.
Last night, I misread the email about today’s swim meet.
So, I drove to the wrong pool — 30 miles in the wrong direction.
Then I missed the timers’ meeting.
Aaaand I forgot our folding chairs.
Right now, I want a do-over.
Not just today, but this whole damn week, this month, all that violence and bloodshed and hatred for one another.
This video is about perspective. In the end, my son swam. They had enough timers. I found a Walmart just 9 minutes away and bought two folding chairs — then found I actually had one chair afterall in the backseat.
This video is about lifting up voices that have been silenced or ignored. About honoring those brave officers who were cut down in cold blood and remembering the two black men who were shot to death this week by police.
This video is about keeping our cool, and sharing that lesson with my children. Thanks for watching, and please… be nice to somebody today.
