I’m on vacation. That’s means I’m doing no work…nada…none. But I’m still a son and need to update my Mom on how her son, daughter-in-law, & grandkids are doing. And with technology today, I can even shoot her some pix. (I will point out that the-greatest-wife-in-the-world told me, "Tim, you told your mom she could find some pictures on your blog…" So, Mom, this one’s for you!) 🙂
Most exciting memory of the drive? A few miles after a stop, we were in an orange-barreled, one-lane maze with no end in sight. I looked down and saw "7 mi" of gas left. Yikes! Visions of me putting my ACL brace on and slow jogging for miles to get a can of gas hit my mind. (I had just been wondering how I could do an even better job of living out Deuteronomy 6:6-9 in a greater way. God hears our hearts when our desires are consistent with His, doesn’t he?) Our whole family prayed and prayed and prayed and prayed…and we finally rolled into a gas station with 2 miles to go. Way to go God!
Later, we hit up a baseball game with a few hundred other people. 🙂 The little clone got 2 real baseballs from the players. And our baby girl had the chance to be on the field and do a bunny hop competition…she won herself free ice cream.
Happy 4th! L8R…
