San Diego VACAY!

This vacay was full of little surprises. 
I was so calm and very contemplative this trip...unexpectantely. 
I witnessed so many little blessings that I would usually disregard; it felt so refreshing and effortless. 
Read the captions for the gooood stuff!

See this man with the shopping cart? My Dad (talking to him) bought him lunch. He didn't boast about it or even mention it to my family. He calmly walked over to the homeless man and asked him what he would like for lunch. As he ate his lunch my Dad sat in tears; he was so humbled and grateful to be able to help. As his proud daughter, I witnessed soooo much goodness just watching. Yes, I'm bragging about my Dad because he leads our family in so many ways. It's an honor to watch him give so willingly and lovingly. You know how they say that children's little eyes are always watching? My little eyes were watching, Dad. Thank you for being so everyone. I can only hope I can lead my children simply by doing, just like you. While he was helping this man, my mom was on the phone with an old friend. This old friend called my mom, distressed, and needed someone to talk to. My mom talked to her and I know, provided comfort and prayer. It says a lot when someone trusts you and calls you even though you haven't talked in years. My parents are pretty awesome. 

How cute is my niece!?

We had a sisters girls night! My talented sis, Kelly, made a delish braised tuna dish. YUM!!!
