Yes, Monday gets a bad rap. I still like them. But I don't 'work'.
Since my mornings begin an hour earlier than they have in the past due in part to a high school schedule, it seems like a very long time til lunch. I should be accomplishing an hour's worth more than I have been.
Happy Grandparent's Day yesterday! I hope the grandparents of our MYP don't feel slighted as it went by without notice. Until I saw on FB someone making a fuss over the day. We are so fortunate to have all four grandparents. They all bring something unique to our children's lives and we're glad of that.
One of the goals of my life is to not have any part in bragging. Would it be considered bragging if I said that son #1's football team had a 44-7 score by the half? It does? Well never mind then. I cheer wildly until it seems like things are too lopsided. Then I say quietly, 'yay!' and leave it at that.
Yesterday we were driving along to someones home for dinner and some time together. On our way home five hours later we came upon a dreadful scene of an accident. We saw the cars involved on flatbeds heading to the boneyard. It looked very very bad. The news now says two were killed. Three injured. And the accident happened just 20 minutes before we drove through. It is one of the moments where you think, 'that could have been us'.
And then this week! The first couple days promise to be very, very busy preparing. The rest of the week promises to be restful in heart, mind, and body. Next week when I muse I'll be completely unable to recap what the days meant to me. But that's ok because you can't even begin to share how your heart feels.
Aren't they cute? I think so.
