    Home on Sunday

    GB is on the road - driving back to TX to pick me up and take me home.  It’s been a grand week with my mother-in-law.  The to-do list has been pared down, and those items left can be taken care of next week.  She’s faced this first week without her husband with faith, grace, and resilience.  She’s had several sad, sad moments and she knows there will be more.  God will help her overcome, as will family and friends.  Her church family will continue to comfort and serve her, as Jesus comforted and served.

    I am happy to go back to my sweet Arkansas home.  Ready to work in the gardens, do some painting, and get back into the daily routine.  Which is really not a routine at all.  Each day is unique - my mornings start out the same on most days, but after breakfast there’s no telling what activity might peak my interest.  It is with thanksgiving that I face my days.  Glad to be home full-time (I am a homebody extraordinaire!), happy to spend time with my mother-in-law, thrilled that a large extended family is close so we can get together often, excited that my sister is off for the summer (maybe we can bowl with Mother and Daddy more often), joyful that I can spend time with nieces and nephews who are home for the summer (minus one)…I could go on and on.  But, more than all those blessings, I REALLY miss my dear husband!

    We’re all hoping for rain.  Which is just extraordinary considering our wild and wet spring.  My rain barrel and water buckets are low, so that means it really needs to rain soon.  If you’ve not read my post on water usage and conservation, here is the link.  And if you have, give it another read.  I like it.
