At the end of the week I think it is good for a little reflection and introspection. Just a few random thoughts and gratitudes:
Like most everyone, I am busy and sometimes I worry about not spending enough time with my parents. Yesterday my husband, my son-in-law Josh, and my Dad cut down and sawed up a large dead tree on my parents' property. My Dad had been instructed to supervise but not do anything much. Well, take a guess how that turned out! Here's a picture to illustrate.
In my Southern family, you have to work really hard to keep up with the 78 year-olds!
My little Mother grabbed her rake, looked at my shoes and said, "Can you work in those?" I answered in the only acceptable way. "Why sure!" (I had to try hard to not let her see me huff and puff.)
I'm thankful I come from hard-working Southern stock. Don't whine; just work.
I thank God for the fact that my business is sustaining my family in such a tough economy.
I'm thankful for God's grace.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
