Granddaddy is taking a nap, Billy is watching a preschool program on tv, and my kids are doing math right now, so I thought I'd take a few minutes to write down my thoughts and share a little....
Granddaddy and Billy are here visiting with us for a week! The kids are so very excited to have them here. Granddaddy is my dh's 82-year old dad and Billy is dh's mentally handicapped 57-year old brother. We only get to see them about 4 or 5 times a year. So the kids really anticipate their getting to spend an entire week with them.
It is a little extra work when they are here, but it is so worth it. God has really used this time to stretch and grow me. It gets me thinking about others and less about me.... It causes me to literally run to Him in the mornings, for His strength and help in coping with whatever the day brings. And didn't He call us to serve Him by serving others?
It's also a time of fun and change! We are planning to relax this week, not doing as much school as usual. I do try to do a little school with the kids while they are here, though. I don't want Granddaddy to think I'm raising his grandchildren to be ignorant!
Joy and blessings be yours in abundance!
