the best valentine’s day ever!

After nearly 37 years, I must admit that this has to have been our best Valentine’s day…
ever!!!

Here’s how it went…

Firstly— “mom” and “da” drove down to Atlanta to babysit so a young couple with little
children could actually go out to eat like real civilized adults…alone as a couple…
all without the typical pure chaos that usually occurs at their dinner table.

Next there was ball toss and catch…

Followed by some good napping…and eventually Sunday night bath time…

First for “Je” (aka James the Sheriff)

Then it was the Mayor’s turn to beautify…

Finally…once everyone had played, bathed, eaten and gotten their parents back…
“mom” and “da” journeyed homeward on the highways and the byways, all through the misty dark
only to have their own late but extra special romantic dinner…
who knew prosecco and hotdogs could totally compliment one another —-

Ode to the love of family and grandkids….

“…as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua 24:15

    When I began with my present spiritual director, the first question he asked me was “Where have you experienced God recently?” I thought about possible answers and then I was totally honest although I have to admit I did expect him to think me lacking in spirituality. My response: “When I enter my daughter’s home and my grandchildren come runing shouting ‘Nana! Nana!’ and hug me.” He said, “Good answer!” That’s how I felt when I read this post. You were in the presence of God’s love on Valentiine’s Day and there is nothng better than that. Blessings!
