Unintended Vacations

Since my husband’s surgery and for a week’s duration, I am his transportation. As such, we went to his dentist appointment today and I had an unintended vacation. Something simple became longer and I, in the luxury of a doctor’s waiting room, with free Columbian coffee in hand and a very good book, bathed in luxurious calm of an unintended vacation, with I must say greater calm than any family (the only kind I achieve) vacation since my children have been born, 14 years hence. So, thank you, Lord, for the vacation to enjoy two of my favorite things- coffee and reading- in a safe, quiet place for a couple precious hours. Perfection. God be praised!!😄❤

Many Hours at the Pool

The biggest reward for cleaning mom’s house and taking care of her, other than the satisfaction that is present, is that her clubhouse has a huge pool and other grandparents have kids that swim there. So there we stayed for hours of fun at the pool. We are a golden tan now and are exhausted but these are the memories you hang your hat on. These are new good tech-free moments with family that make you feel amazing and you remember as the good times for when things get rough. God gave us good memories there with Grandma/my mom and with her pool. Thank you, God!❤❤❤
