Summertime

My son Eric and his grandmother

It has been months of birthdays.. Starting in May with a newborn, then her little brother, then their mother, my daughter, then my oldest son and today my youngest son and my husband. While rummaging through pictures, my heart strings are pulled, as I think about my children and how they have grown to be responsible young adults. I must admit, though, that sending a birthday wish, through a text or a phone call, does not take the place of hands on and giving the individual a hug… I hope you all feel the Love….

I am sure you all have been thinking that I have been away on a luxury cruise or something like that…The truth is that we are motivated to relocate. We want to be able to see our young grandchildren on a more regular basis. We began the momentum by having two garage sales and sorting through things we had not seen in over three years. It was not fun! All of the little stuff like dried up pens, nails and bolts and tiny miscellaneous things were a real pain… grumble grumble. Then heavy things that were impossible for me to move was frustrating. After about a month of numerous trips to our local thrift stores, we got our garage cleaned up and organized. It looks wonderful! It was worth the hard work, and after all of that and prayer,Ā  it was decided for us, that we should stay put a bit longer. In time we hope to purchase a trailer and experience a nomadic life style. Quite a while ago I changed my settings here at WordPress to be able to read blogs at my Reader. It is not working out well for me. I think it was better when I was notified through my email inbox. Now I have to figure out how to switch back to the other method. I am also contemplating starting up a new blog.. Here I go again.. I hope you are all having a good summer or whatever season you may be in. I look forward to getting back into the swing of things.. Remember that God is good, and all of the time.. xx

    First of all ~ HAPPY BIRTHDAY ~ to all in your family. And, yes…I’d rather hug and I’m a fan of snail mail cards but do the text to them also and remind others in my family of a birthday so they can text. haha
    I so would love to move to new surroundings and love your idea of a trailer and moving about. Hubby is in no shape to do that however. Agree on the garage sales…no fun and I’ve been trying to downsize some things so the kids won’t have to get rid of some day, but hubby is a keeper and he won’t give up things in his very packed garage…lol. Maybe I’ll throw him in a garage sale too. j/k
    I have two blogs and keep trying to decide which I want to do more, and then I think I need a main theme if I’m to keep blogging.
    ~hugs~ sweet lady and hope you have a great weekend and week ahead.

      Thank you Peabea! We did pretty well letting go. My hubby is also a keeper but loosening up a bit.. We will see what God has in store for us but, and I will be patient.. Enjoy the rest of your day!

    Mercy, you’ve been very busy! Cleaning up and out is never fun, but it feels so good to get it accomplished, doesn’t it? You’ll know when the time is right to move on, God will give you that nudge. šŸ™‚
