I often stop by my parents house on Sunday nights. I always get a little chuckle out of my dad and his best friend and neighbor, DeRae. Now my dad rarely gets out of the house because of his poor health. But he just adores hanging out on the front lawn with DeRae. (DeRae is my brother-in-law's father--they happen to live next door!) They talk about their childhoods, the weather and about their latest ailment. I always sneak them a treat but I'm sworn to secrecy that I won't tell their wives! (Neither are suppose to eat many sweets.) I love the sweetness of this relationship!
On to another cute relationship. My little neighbor girl, CJ, just adores our dog. She will sit in the dog's cage with Maggie for what seems like hours. They totally speak the same language--the universal language of love. Last Friday night, CJ's mom, Portia, called to see if Maggie could sleep over. Of course I said yes--I was thrilled to have a night off from the dog's snoring! At 4:00 a.m. CJ started to cry. Portia got up to make her a bottle but by the time she got to her crib, the crying was stopped. Maggie had heard CJ and had jumped in her crib to comfort her. The two were sleeping side by side!
Sage has always been a "Kade" girl. She has missed him beyond measure. So you can imagine my joy when I saw Sage nestled in Collin's arms while eating breakfast at I-HOP a few weeks ago. Just had to capture it on film.
I love this quote:
Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand. ~Emily Kimbrough
So glad so many people are there to hold my hand through the "stumbles" of life.
Hope your week will be great. I'll be "girls-only" camping with my daughters and a bunch of friends.
