The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – “Today Was a Good Day”


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Today Was a Good Day.”

When I read this week’s challenge I thought – this will be difficult because everyday is a good day. Then tonight while visiting at my son’s house I decided today was a good day.

This morning I woke and went to the gym to meet with a trainer and then attended an exercise class. When I returned home I was feeling high vibration and danced around the house thinking I LOVE life. After showering and eating breakfast I headed out to my son’s house. On the way I stopped at a favorite fresh fruit stand to pick up some peaches and a Fruits of the Forest pie for my daughter who is four weeks from delivery of her first baby.

My daughter, her boyfriend, my son and I had a picnic and then played some crochet. As you can see from the one photo my son found his ball in the bushes and had a difficult play. While they were resting I captured some photos. After the third game of croquet we decided to take a walk.

Remember I said my daughter is pregnant, well she is four weeks away from delivery and not able to walk too far so my son suggested riding in the wagon. We thought he was kidding around but a little while later we heard noise coming from the garage. Sure enough he had a wagon and was placing a blanket in the bottom to make it comfy. As you can see from the photos it is a beautiful area and my son takes very good care of his ‘baby’ sister. He is also her God Father and I am very happy that they can have such fun together.

As I followed them down the driveway I thought – this is a ‘good day.’ But then, everyday I get to spend time with my grown children is a good day.

Cassie was a bit nervous when Joe decided to run down a hill with her in the wagon swaying back and forth. He was trying to get momentum to make it up the next hill, she holding on tight worrying about tipping over. There were no spills. She got out to walk for a bit. So Joe decided to take a ride down the next hill on his own. As you can see from the photo above he did make it safely down the hill. We were a bit nervous when he was heading toward the woods but he was able to steer clear. I think he will always be a little adventurous and maintain that child within that comes out every now and then to play. Well, really it comes out whenever he is with us.

Today was just one of those extra special good days.

Love and Light!

  1. What a fun day, as I sit in my son’s house after babysitting my three grandkids while they went out and celebrated my daughter-in-law’s birthday. While this was a great day, I reported on another great day. Why don’t you come and see my challenge:

    • Thank you Mary. It was definitely a mindset shift that was not always present but it makes life so worthwhile!! When together outside we always have a great time (inside too but we really love being outside). Hope you have a ‘good day’ today:)
