Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Rise and Shine and Give God the Glory

Hey everyone..long time no see:) Just wanted to stop in and say hi and let you know all is well. It's summer and we've been crazy busy.

I woke singing, "Rise and shine and give God the glory." Complete with hands motions and all. After the day I had a work yesterday, I needed pepping up. And that song will do it!

I wonder if taking a week off work is worth it?

Yes, it is.

We had the most fantabulous time! No reservations, no GPS, no schedule. Just a $10 Rand McNally , and we were off. We started out in Nashville, TN and ended up in Cincinnati, OH by week end, with Louisville, KY and Milltown, IN in between.

I was reminded also, there is no place like home. Home to family and friends. Why is it that after you've been gone, everything looks different? You seem like a stranger in your own home and town. Funny but true. Then once you are back at work, reality body slams you, and you feel all normal again.

If you are wondering about Mom, well, she is fine:) She did a happy dance after her last antibiotic IV. Way to go Mom! Now she is feeling better and we are praying each day brings her strength and healing.

I love that song also - it is very contagious when you sing it.

I am glad that mom is doing better.

Many prayers,

We just got home Friday night. I want to go back. I also want to do your trip someday. Our goal is to see every state in the country before we are too old to travel. Sounds a little corny but you know I am getting older!

Glad to hear your mom is doing better. And your trip sounds so fun! We want to do that with our kids when they get a little bit older. I think we would all be miserable if we did it now 'cause they still ask "are we there yet" and "how much longer" every 5 min.

I'm so glad you had a fun trip. Good news too that your Mom is doing well. Have a great week and enjoy your weekend :-D

Would love to see Kathy do the Happy Dance! Glad she has such a good attitude. I know you are so proud of her. I have been busy this summer also and do not get to visit blogs very much. Glad to hear you are having a good summer though. Love you sister;)
