Sorry I have been unable to post on my blog this week. Country Guy & I have been in Nebraska helping our daughter’s family move into their new house. I don’t get cell reception there, and they were not able to get their house phone or Internet hooked up before we left this morning to return to Illinois so I have been very much unconnected from the world. It is amazing how dependent I am on instant communication. I felt like I was on a deserted island with no way to get a message to you! :o)
It was a fun week, though. We spent the week carrying boxes, putting things away, re-organizing, re-arranging, ironing, assembling shelving, vacuuming & cleaning, caulking, putting up curtains, playing with the grandchildren, shopping for extras for the house, returning some of the extras, planting daffodils which we brought from our daffodil patch in the woods, repotting houseplants, and anything else we could think of to be useful. Because of the combined efforts of our daughter and son-in-law, his parents and us, the place was beginning to look as if it had been lived in for a long time when we left this morning. Even though the process has taken several months, and hundreds of decisions to bring the house to completion, it has been well worth it! The house is warm and welcoming, and the setting is beautiful!
We are so happy for their family and so grateful they allowed us to be part of this happy time in their lives. What a privilege and blessing!
Hopefully, I will now get back to blogging regularly. Thanks to all of you for “hanging in there” and not giving up on me. And thanks to those of you who leave comments and email me. Please continue to do so. You are great encouragers!
