I am really enjoying (Freddie's) vacation week. We went to the camp last night and I cooked a chili over an open fire while Freddie and the kids fished off of the bridge. Aubree caught her first fish- a "poly-wog". LOL. It was really enjoyable to be able to get away from the "noise" of life, even if only for a few hours. No TV and no radio and no internet can be a blessing! We didn't want to leave, but, we had to get back home because this year, Freddie is spending his vacation catching up on his "honey-do's" with bits of fun scattered in for good measure.
I returned home to check my blog (my baby) and felt blessed to see so many people reading it. I hope everyone is enjoying reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
I want to share a blessing with you. Everyday I check my email inbox for a devotion that I have subscribed to. And more than once, the devotion of "today" is about the blog that I wrote "yesterday". And this morning was another case of such "confirmation", as I like to call it. It brought me to tears because I could almost hear the audible voice of God telling me that I am doing right by my children. I know I am not perfect at parenting. I do mess up, and sometimes big. But, I believe that if I can douse them with enough "right" parenting then it'll all be okay.
So, be encouraged as I am. Just try your best, in spite of your failures, to sprinkle in some "right" as often as you can! We are doing okay guys! We are doing okay!
