my day off

Today was a huge blessing as I got to be with my family all day.

Visiting places together, walking outside together, cooking, eating home made salsa that we made from a CRATE of tomatoes a friend left on our deck, cleaning, planning...

I will never take my family for granted or tire of spending time with them, and now I am ready to return to work because my heart is full.

If the Lord allows, later this week I'll be sitting by my dad's side yet again at a tractor pull I care nothing about, but I care about he and my mom, and I can never thank them enough for the sacrifices they've made over the years for our sakes.

I still remember not being able to fall asleep as a kid at night until I heard his car pull into the driveway following his night-time factory job.  A second job he was forced to take when everyone stopped getting their hair cut.  Just knowing he was home let me rest.

It's funny to understand we have the same affect on our grandkids.  Total trust.  That's weighty.  But it's also the best thing in the world.

I'm just full of thankfulness and I know the thankful is directed straight to the Lord.  Without the bond we have in Him - there would be no common love, care and commitments that bind us so tightly!

Have a great sleep - and let's wake up tomorrow all committed to loving our families well, with His love!  Good-night!
