I just returned home from the vacation of a lifetime. It was probably too good to describe in words, but I’ll try to do it justice…
I spent six days at my parent’s house where I didn’t have to make a meal, my laundry showed up in my bedroom miraculously clean (and folded!), and my son was entertained by his adoring Grammie and Grampie 24/7. I spent the mornings going for walks with my boy, I snacked from a fridge stocked with groceries that I didn’t have to buy, and I went running with my sister four times in six days.
And to top it all off, they have high speed internet.
Truly the best possible vacation a mama can have, with the best possible people I know.
(The only thing missing was Nature Boy who had to stay home and work).
And now that I’m back home, my heart is full of gratitude for the wonderful Mom and Dad I’ve been blessed with. Spending time at their home is like finding an oasis in the middle of a desert – it’s so peaceful and beautiful and restorative. And they love me and my family with such real, deep love… They are so much more than I deserve.
Thanks Mom and Dad… you bring JOY to my heart!
And what about you? What brought you JOY this week? Tell us about it!
