my day off
God is so generous to our family.
I had the privilege of starting my day by taking my mother-in-law whom I dearly love, to lunch and then grocery shopping. We had a great time and I ended the shopping trip by printing off some amazing pictures I've been waiting to frame, mainly of the grandkids!
I then went home to cook dinner for my son's family and my hubby. Following dinner we all ended up in the upstairs bedroom that's been converted into a toy room. Here we played with Legos and danced to children's songs like "Old McDonald's Farm and Twinkle Little Star". So fun!
I am SO thankful for this kind of simplicity. Some may consider it trivial - I consider it life-giving.
And so as my day off comes to an end I'm filled with ribs, and 'guess why the chicken crossed the road' kids' jokes, the hum of the dishwasher and a reluctant glimpse at tomorrow's calendar still clinging to today's memories...
Thank you Lord for simple days and precious memories and being completely surrounded by family.
