Thankful Thursday Thinking

Last Friday our oldest daughter, son-in-love, and 2 grandchildren came for a 24 hour visit. Our children do not usually stay longer than that right now, because of the effect it has on our health. We try to talk them into a two day visit, but they are "strict" with us about sticking to these rules. We are hopeful that will change for us soon.

It was such a blessing to see them again after 8 months. We packed a lot of hugs, game playing, visiting, and food fellowship into those 24 hours! I am so grateful today for being able to connect with them once again. And I am so grateful for their willingness to drive over 5 hours one way to see us and turn right around the next day and drive home. We are blessed.

"Love, love love
Thats what its all about
God loves us, we love each other
Mother, Father, sister, brother
Everybody sing and shout
Cause that's what it's all about
It's about love, love, love,
It's about love.."
Sunday School song

What a wonderful blessing to be surrounded by loved ones and bless them for making the drive.

Family is truly a blessing. There seems to be a family theme on Thankful Thursday today.

Beautiful! I love how you say "son-in-love"...we use that term in our family, too.

On a different note, I see you have Lyme Disease. Have you ever heard of Lisa Buffaloe or visited her blog? ( ) She has Lyme Disease as well and often writes about it. She is an amazingly inspirational writer and friend.

This post is so very sweet and I am so glad that you are blessed.
The memories keep us going for a long while, don't they...?
God bless you and yours always,
