"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." Matthew 11:28-29 (NIV)
Today is the Friday I have been looking forward to for a month.
Today is the begining of my church retreat
Today I hugged my son "good-bye" at his school (he let me get out and hug him, but there were only 5 cars in the parking lot). I don't think he is embarresed to hug his mom, and he kissed my nose before I would let him go, like he has since he was little. The diffenence is that the kiss come from above me, no jumping up to reach my nose.
My ballerina and my archaeologist have left for their day at college. English Muffins and Coffee and their off!!! Like in a road ralley. The little Chaveler purrs out of the driveway.
Now, "Mom you said you will pickup a little before you leave" rings in my head. I told her last week her boyfriend was around enough he could starting helping with chores. Her answer was to go in and clean the bathroom.
I love my kids so much. I don't hold them in my grasp anymore, but God holds them in HIS Hands.
