Summer Fun!

Our daughter Sara, son-in-law Mark and granddaughter Maya recently returned from a 2-week vacation, and so it was a delight to have Maya come for a visit yesterday. It was as if she was making up for lost time as she went from activity to activity! We spent quite a bit of time outside as she went from swingset to tricycle and garden. After that, it was time to go inside and play with toys and "read" Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. We had lunch together, enjoying the tomatoes she helped pick from our garden, and then it was off to stories in the rocking chair and a cozy nap.

So today I am thankful to the Lord for: 

  • returning Sara, Mark and Maya home safely and for the time they spent with family and friends

  • hugs and kisses from our sweet little Maya

  • hearing Maya chat about whatever came to her mind

  • tomato-picking and finding Daddy Longleg spiders

  • the swingset the Lord provided for us

  • cuddling during storytime and singing together

  • energy to keep up with a 2 year old!

Oh Laurie, Maya is adorable! How fun to spend time with her and yes, praise God that you had the energy to keep up with a 2 year old. LOL.

I wanted to also thank you for your kind comments on Heart Choices. It meant so much to me.

You do indeed need energy to keep up with your little granddaughter. She looks delightful and so content to be home again with Nana.
