I’m so thankful I can incorporate my one word, thankful, into my favorite Friday activity – Five Minute Friday, which I confess takes longer than five minutes for me to compose because I’m a
deep slow thinker, but only takes five minutes to read. That counts, right? This week, the word is visit.
I never dreamed I would be so happy or excited to live with my #1 son again.
When I left home five years ago to strike out on my own, kid free, I really thought I would be okay with the occasional visit.
I quickly came to realize however, just how much I missed having someone in the same room, the camaraderie.
Doing overseas missions left me craving my family even more. I visited so many places where family is treated with the upmost importance, unlike the USA. In the USA, independence is what we strive for.
My whole world view changed thanks to doing missions. Missions taught me that I would much rather be together with my family then just being an occasional visitor.
