The sun is shining. Its not warm yet but its getting there. The birds are singing. I’ve gotten three loads of laundry done, breakfast smoothies and bacon made, Nana’s needs attended to and dishes done. Those breakfast smoothies were delicious. I used frozen strawberries, blueberries, a lime and coconut water. Its more sugar than my body is used to but a small glass really hit the spot this morning.
So, I’m just resting a moment til time to get back at it. On the weekends the whole family gathers here and it leaves my house sort of upside down no matter how much they all pick up and straighten up after themselves. I wouldn’t trade it for anything! I love these days and I know that they can’t be replaced. I treasure every moment with these people because someday, one day, they will go their own ways and have things to do that don’t include me.
When that day comes, I will have these precious times in my memory, these good relationships built and strengthened by the Lord and all the times we spend together now will bless me and my children in the days to come.
