A Wonderful Week

Sometimes my mother heart is scattered all around, in six places all at the same time. Parts of my heart walking around with each of my six grown children. And about three months ago part of my heart left for a three month job on a fish processing vessel in the Bering Sea. 

This past Monday we went to the airport to pick up our youngest son. We enjoyed five wonderful days together, hearing of his adventures on the Bering Sea, eating and talking together, having family over, cherishing spending time with our son.  


A precious gift ... five days together. Love given and love received. And now he is off again (though nearby) earning money for future adventures. My prayers follow him, my heart always with him, and I hold these five days of memories close ...

365 - Thank You, Lord ... for safety, for valuable experiences, for strength given ...

366 - For five wonderful days together, our son here at home ...

367 - For the joy of being mom ...

368 - For two daughters (with their three two year-olds) home one night ...


369 - For another daughter (with her two children) home another night ...


370 - For more progress on a daughter and son-in-law's brand new home, just 5 1/2 miles away ...


371 - For time at a nearby consignment sale with two daughters and three grandkids; one grandson discovering a fun workbench toy ...


372 - For a Silent Auction put on by some of our fellow staff members, raising funds ... and for the joy of helping out by bringing a few food items ...



373 - For hearing my prayers and giving us a wonderful week, filling this mother's heart to overflowing.

374 - Thank You, Lord, for Your faithful promises ~ "As soon as I pray, You answer me; You encourage me by giving me strength." (Psalm 138:3)
