By the time you read this I will have spent the past 4 days shopping and lounging at the beach with my lovely daughters, daughters-in-law, and granddaughters. It’s become an annual tradition.
While we were doing girl things, my sons and son-in-law proved their manhood by backpacking several miles into a lake with 50 or so pounds a piece on their backs. We ladies are all really glad we’re not guys. We’d much rather shop at the outlet mall, watch Jane Eyre, and take bubble baths, than live without a bathroom and eat dried fruit and jerky.
We also spent the holiday weekend completely computer-free, a good thing to do once in awhile! That’s why I didn’t write a regular post for today. If you haven’t tried it, turn off the computer for a day, and spend the extra time doing something fun with your kids — read a book, take a walk, play a game, run through the sprinkler with them, watch some ants do their job, pack a picnic and head for the park (or the beach!). And thank God for the beautiful world and the beautiful family He’s given you!
