Spontaneity is not my middle name. If my family wrote a hundred words to describe me, it wouldn’t make the list. I am a planner who embraces a schedule with all the details arranged ahead of time.
On Friday afternoon, my husband called to say he was on his way home – and would our daughters and I like to leave in half an hour for a drive to the beach and dinner out. My reply? “We’ll be ready and waiting.”
There’s a lot to be said for being organized and planning ahead. But I’m learning that spontaneity can be a very good thing as well.
