Celebrating the Everyday Stuff

I took the day off from work today to spend some time with my family.  My parents are visiting from Dallas, TX, and my kids were off from school today.  This morning, I took a walk with my wife before cooking up a batch of pancakes (made with our “farm” fresh eggs).  I “dragged” my dad along on some errands to pick up some groceries and stuff for the chickens.  After lunch, we fed the fish (I mean went fishing) in the neighbors’ pond.  And now my parents are taking our son to his weekly piano lesson.

Besides the fact that I’m not at work on a Thursday, it’s been a pretty usual, uneventful day.  But I love it!

Having parents here is a blessing, and we don’t get to see them very often thanks to the miles between here and Dallas.  But I don’t think they mind just going with the flow of what normally happens around here.  I’m so thankful for the everyday stuff.  And I’m thankful to share that with my folks.

Back to work tomorrow, but I’m looking forward to a fun weekend with my family.

“This is the day the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it!”
