Please excuse my absence yesterday, but my mom is here and I am enjoying spending every waking moment with her. For the longest time I have seen other sororities and fraternity’s posting and talking about Mom’s weekend and that was something I always wanted to experience with my own mom… It looked like a special fun time and this weekend, I am getting to experience that. Mom’s weekend has been great, which I will share more about tomorrow, but today has been such a fun day. When they made the Mom’s weekend schedule, they had down on Saturday we would be “painting with a twist.” Okay so I didn’t really know what that was, but the only painting I am good at is when I paint a wall. Needless to say, I was very unsure of this event, but I knew it would be a great event with a lot of great guys and our mom’s! I am not really sure what the twist was, but the painting was pretty fun. They have all of the same canvases and they all have the same out line. Ours today had a TCU horned frog and then they have an instructor at the front of the room who kind of guided us through painting our own beautiful honored frog. It wasn’t something I would do
1. Because I can’t paint at all
2. Because I would have never thought of it
But because of these reasons, it was a pretty good experience. My mom did paint on me and I did realize that I am still not artistic, but it was still a great time. I encourage you to take the time and do things outside of your normal, especially with the people you love. It makes for a great time! Stepping outside of our comfort zone is often not fun, but once we are out, it may become one of the best things.
I will share much more about Mom’s weekend tomorrow, but today I am so thankful my mom is here and I am thankful we got to do something different with each other. We often forgot what it is like to get out of our comfort zone, but when we do, it makes for a great time. I hope you all are having a great weekend filled with thanks! I know I am thankful to be with my momma!
