Christ is Risen!
Have you ever had one of those phases where you were just so busy that even getting normal stuff done – like going grocery shopping – seems impossible to squeeze in? I had appointments of one sort or the other for the first four days of the week, and I managed to confuse the time of one by two hours. I’m grateful that the person was understanding!
The kids have one week left to school and I’m grateful that the end is well in sight. I’m looking forward to not having the first two hours of each day being dominated by getting stuff together for them, getting them ready, driving them there, and then driving back home. So many times, I’ve felt like I’m done with the day after that, and it’s only 9am. I’d like to actually get some progress on house projects done.
I’m grateful that I got some time to spend with my dear neighbors who are moving. I heard the U-Boxes get delivered on Friday night and I just about started crying. On Saturday, I saw one of them outside and asked if they needed help with the loading of the boxes, and the answer was yes. They had a number of people there for some of the time, but most of them had to go after a couple of hours. I’m really going to miss them.
I’ve been enjoying reading online and interacting with people, and although sometimes I feel like I’m slacking off by doing this, I’m grateful for the opportunity to get to read, write, think, and interact with other adults.
I’m very thankful the kids are back home. They were only gone a couple of days, and I certainly crave the quiet, but I miss them when they’re away.
As always, I am grateful for each one of you reading, and for your prayers.
