This week was a wild ride!
Full of highs and lows. A week of tissues...for colds and for meltdowns. A week for beginnings. And for smiles and tears. Sunshine and raindrops. Busy schedules for some of us, cancelled plans for others.
By yesterday, life was a bit more settled.
Late afternoon found the girls and me putting together a casual meal as friends were joining us for dinner. It had been a busy day and we had only a short time to get everything done, but we all worked together, chopping vegetables, stirring soup, chatting and laughing and comparing notes about our days, the music of Michael Card as background. We were busy, but not hurried.
I totally love working in the kitchen with my daughters. Working together, we nurture our relationship and make great memories.
Now on this Saturday morning, I linger over a second cup of coffee and some unhurried time. Later in the day, there will be some shopping and then preparations for tomorrow's Irish dinner. But for now, I am grateful for moments to be still. I am grateful for His daily grace.
It is more than enough.
