I know, I know, it’s Friday all ready. I had some technical difficulties yesterday, so this didn’t get posted. But it’s here now! Yeah!
Today I am thankful for my parents. I have had the great privilege of having lunch with my parents every Tuesday for the past several years. After lunch Dad goes home and Mom and I spend the rest of the day running errands and shopping. I am so very fortunate to live in the same town with them. Our lunches have deepened our friendship and my appreciation for their wit and wisdom. We have a lot of fun together and these times are very precious to me. Occasionally one of my kids or another family member will join us when they are in town. But as much as I love them, I have to confess that I truly treasure most those days when it’s just the three of us.
The older I get the more I understand what life is really about. Life is about relationships. Real, heart-to-heart relationships. And as it is with so many other things, quantity is no match for quality. I have determined to be more deliberate with the relationships in my life. They are gifts from Father to be nurtured and cherished and celebrated.
