Mills had a large coke and it was literally the size of this head. It wasn’t just a tall cup, but very fat around. I mean that cup could have easily held the Arkansas River.
Our medium drinks were also pretty wide around and there was a moment when I thought Madison was going to drop one on me because they were so heavy.
I also couldn’t get over the bucket of popcorn Mom and Madison got. I mean it was crazy. I felt like it was the Mary Poppins version of the popcorn bucket because the farther down you put your hand the deeper that bucket got. I mean there is no way we could have finished all that popcorn. I even had some because there was so much of it.
This got me thinking about how easy it is to be upset with how much or how little of something we get. Particularly when we fill like we don’t get enough, but that is when you learn to be thankful for the “mini” things in life. Big or little life is full of surprises and either way it is important to be thankful for what we get. Some people can’t go to the movie. Some people have never had popcorn. Some people would love to have a problem that we had so much food/drink…they would kill for that seriously. I think it is important to keep that all in perspective. Just think about it and be thankful for what you have… not what you don’t!
Speaking of big surprises, I have onecoming Friday. I can’t wait for you all to see! EEEPPPPPP… I am already feeling thankful!
Southern and Thankful
