It's sort of feeling like a season of blessings to me. I love the fall transition of the year..it's a contemplative time, and I have had so many things on my heart these past weeks. And so thankful to God that He so tenderly cares for me, even knowing that I am such a work in progress!
I'm thankful for today, because it's my anniversary. 15 years married to JR, who has loved me unconditionally, been an example and a mentor to me, and has always demonstrated grace toward me and our marriage.
And my family. How can I be proud and humbled at the same time? And did I mention that the most incredible news of all is that in addition to the four smartest and most adorable grandkids that we have, we are about to have three more!!! That's right, each of our girls, Meghan, Katie and Amelia, are having babies! One is due in December, one is due in February, and the other is due in March! I still can't quite get my head around that! Did I mention...three more grandbabies!!!!!
The blessings of friendship...camping friends, blog friends, church friends, neighbor friends, and the friends that we know would drop anything when we need them. There are the friends that know every detail of our lives and without hesitation love us more because of our mess-ups.
And to think I get to spend my time here on Earth with all of these people, and live comfortably in a little bungalow, and make and do the things I love to do. That's not a bad way to live.
