We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

 Just when I was getting back in the swing of balancing working again with grandparenting, I took a couple of days off last week to go back up north with Heather. 

Just when I was enjoying spending time with Kai and Halle, I rolled my ankle and sprained it badly!! Ouch!!
 Just when I was looking forward to jumping on the trampoline with Kai, I spent my time on the couch instead....with a little person and his feet beside me.
Just when I was starting to wear out and feeling tired, God stopped me in my tracks!
He reminded me that I need to have margin,
time to be still,
and not worry so much about the 'to do' lists.

Just when I needed a reminder that it isn't about how much I do,
He reminded me that it's about 'being'.

So here I sit...with my foot up, enjoying the quiet.

Our son's & d-i-l car simply 'stopped' the other day. It's not the youngest of cars any more, a gift from his sister and has a lot of road experience. Fortunately it was parked in front of the house and they could borrow mine. It did take a bit of time, focus, patience and expert attention to 're-charge' it again. Keep re-charging and then GO again!!
