Sometimes, as cliche as it sounds, we really do just have to go with the flow. The disappointing moment of a storm moving in right as it is time to go do our obligitory 4th of July activity of watching local fireworks turned into impromtu dancing around the living room to Aretha Franklin (need I write her last name?) singing RESPECT on NPT's A Capitol Fourth. My little man, who, sadly, is just seeing Aretha for the first time said "Mommy, she sings like Elvis!" The boy knows who has soul and this little good-for-my-soul moment would never have happened if things had gone according to my plans! Got to remember to live in the moment and be open to "happy accidents"!
