The greatest blessing EV-er!!!

Our kids want to spend time with us!

What could be better?

This past week of Thanksgiving I heard a lot of people (including me) talking about how grateful they are to have a place to live, a church family, a job, etc. It's easy to lose sight of other blessings that sometimes go undetected when you are used to something -- like your kids talking to you or spending time with you.

I was talking about vacations with a friend whose children are also in their twenties. She shared that her kids would never willingly go on a trip with with her and her husband. She said, "I think that would be their nightmare...maybe mine too."

That got me to thinking how blessed Larry and I are.  Our kids seem to love being with us.  They couldn't wait to take this trip.

I am blessed among all women.  Thank you, Lord, for your blessings on me.

I have so many memories built around our family vacations. We visited nearly all of the national parks, went to the World's Fair in Seattle, rode a glass-bottomed boat at Catalina Island, drove across Nova Scotia, climbed mountains in Maine...we came away from each place with more than photos from the Brownie; laughter, comraderie, learning, growing respect for each other. I loved (and still love)spending time with my parents. You are blessed PD!
