I’m going to put aside all our problems for today because Avengers: Endgame is out and we’re going this afternoon. The kids get out of school at 3 PM, and we’re going to head straight to the theater.
I hate using the word normal, but the truth is, sometimes it’s important to feel normal. Sometimes it’s beneficial to get away from everything that’s making life stressful and forget about our problems, even if it’s only for a few hours.
The kids have had a rough couple of weeks, and we’ve always made it a point to go see the Marvel movies as a family. We don’t get to do a ton of cool things but this is something we can pull off, and the kids love every minute of it.
I’ve been sitting on these tickets for a few weeks, and this has been a light at the end of the tunnel for me. It’s something I’ve been able to focus on and remain excited about.
For a few hours this afternoon, we’re not going to think about Autism, Special Needs, fragile health, chronic pain, compromised immune systems, needing to move, figuring out the bills or what we’re going to do when school lets out for the summer.
For a few hours, we’re going to be a family, spending an afternoon at the movies. I think that will do all of us some good. 😉
