My quiet empty nest was a full house this weekend! Bree brought nine pals home with her to attend a couple of events in the twin cities. So the stillness in our home, was filled with laughter and late night kitchen adventures…flaming chicken on the grill, preparing fajitas for a crowd…a homemade video creation of Dog Days are Over…a full row of friends in church this morn!
I have grown to savor the quietness of my life. But what a blessing to fill it up again this weekend with such great kids.
Again, I am reminded to appreciate my present season in life. I have always said that I have enjoyed each stage of my daughter’s life…and I am loving the current one of observing her begin to create a life of her own…yet still wanting to stay connected to home. I am blessed.
