I am spending a year writing about thankful. It’s my One Word for 2015.
3 Gifts Only Seen Up Close
I think most everybody who visits me here on the blog knows that I live in Florida and most of my people live in Pennsylvania. We talk to each other fairly frequently. But sometimes I just have to go home because some gifts can only be seen up close.
58. Mom had two knee replacements last week. It’s good to be home to see up close how well she’s doing, how quickly she’s recovering. I’m so thankful she’s a tough old broad.
59. My brother’s family has two really cute dogs. They’re labradors. I already know their chocolate lab, Luna. And on this trip, I’ve gotten to meet their yellow lab, Stella. It’s really fun to see these two up close.
60. So geocaching has become a new hobby of sorts. In Florida, I’ve been going out on these adventures alone. I was super excited to come home this week and go geocaching with my niece and nephews. They are 12, 9, and 5. I think geocaching is really a lot of fun. But geocaching with little kids? I’m really glad we got to share this adventure, to see up close the joy of such a seemingly small thing.
