Well, friends, as it turns out, I’m out of town for a few days.
I was going to write a clever post about my trip, but between packing, getting things set to leave my family, and knowing I have to be up at 4:00 AM, this is going to be short and sweet.
Russ and I are taking seriously our 2017 commitment to restore neglected relationships. The last (many) years made it difficult to spend time with some of our nearest and dearest family members. Today, I’m off on a trip with my parents and sisters. Can you believe it?
This is a big deal for us, and not easy to pull off, but we are making it happen and I’m very thankful – especially to Russ.
After our accident, I remember being struck by how short life is and how precious people are. We have to pause our crazy lives and cherish the people we love.
I’m sure I’ll have a lot more to say on this when I get home.
I’ll try to get a friends-letter out this weekend to tell you I made it back and maybe share a story or two. Add your name to my list if you would like a short note from me in your inbox most weekends.
As I prepared for my trip, I found myself wishing I’d done a better job asking if some of you would like to write guest posts – just a simple day-in-life, nothing earth-shattering, unless you want to wow us.
So often we want to hear a story of another life, another woman loving children God has brought to her through birth, foster care, or adoption. Or maybe still waiting and hoping for children.
If you would like to share your life with us, please take a look at the My Thankful Life guidelines and send something my way. Sometimes it’s seriously hard keeping up the pace of publishing posts while also working on a book (or two), traveling, speaking, being mom to the six kids at home, wife to Russ, and doing life.
I could use a little help from a friend, or two, or six.
Can’t wait to tell you about my trip. I’ll be back soon!
