I can remember a strained tone to her voice because I'm pretty sure we weren't super helpful. One child fell down the back steps of the house to the pavement below giving us a scare. Worse, a teenage brother fell off the dock while fishing at low tide into the murky barnacles of the marsh slicing his back badly and needing a trip to the ER.
Sometimes trips are just memorable for the pain they cause.
Our latest weekend getaway (though I love four day weekend escapes and feel lucky to have them) was similar though not as extreme.
And I say that just so's life around here doesn't always seem glossy though we pave it with the best of intentions ;)
I listened to THIS today on the treadmill and it said so much I needed to hear.
Most especially this gem:
"...where your treasure is
there will your heart be also ..."
Just the gentle reminder I needed, that these people whom I treasure hold all of my heart and the more I treasure them, the more my heart bursts to do and be all that they need. And how can I be luckier than that?
