April Thomas isn’t super mom. But wearing a cape makes life so much more fun.
Plenty of moms envision themselves as super mom, but I not only have an authentic cape in my closet, I wear it proudly.
Whether it’s a home improvement project taking over our life, a college daughter injured while attempting a selfie (long story that is SO blog worthy), or a marketing strategy discussion at work (ask my team about the dolphin costume), this mom uses what I like to call my God-given talents to make life interesting. I spill things even when I’m extra careful. I trip over my own two feet walking on flat ground. (My husband simply shakes his head and extends his hand.) My mama should have probably named me Lucy. Bless her heart.
My family adore (OK, tolerate) my sense of humor and there are those who say my enthusiasm is contagious. (Is that like a disease?) Yet my detail-oriented nature takes vacation planning to a whole new level. I know the location of the restroom in nearly every establishment in town and on each exit of I-95 in three states.
My husband soars through these adventures with me sometimes shaking his head and sometimes ordering holiday themed sunglasses with detachable mustaches. #twopeasinapod
Through it all, God uses the unusual, hilarious and sometimes humiliating moments of my life to reveal something important. Sometimes it’s motivational and sometimes its correction and even other times it’s just plain funny. But before I’m off to save the day and most likely create a scene somewhere/somehow, I want to share His message through my life’s daily adventures.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
