It's quiet here this morning at our little country house. Everyone is still in bed and all you can hear is the chirping of the birds and the whirling of a window fan. Eight hours earlier you would have heard a house buzzing with the sound of bright and bubbly family.
My sister-in-law and her family are here to visit and it has been so much fun. The boys had a camp out in the back yard last night. I could still hear them whispering outside at midnight so I'm not surprised they are still sleeping. They were the cutest; dad's and sons and cousins carting their pillows out to the tent in their pajamas. "We'll be up at six," they said. The clock just chimmed telling me it is eight o'clock and I have yet to see anyone emerge from the tent.
I can't begin to explain how happy a full house makes me. Taking care of people and being a hostess is kind of my thing. Filling this house wall to wall with love makes my heart burst with happiness. Our cousins came over too and we BBQ'd, took the kids on quad rides, made Smores over a bon fire and played well past sun down. Music and laughter filled the air. It was wonderful.
I'm about to put on my apron and make a big breakfast for everyone. The dad's usually claim the kitchen in the morning, but since they are still sleeping, I get to do it. I don't mind at all. I am happiest in the kitchen cooking for my family.
This weekend is special and I'd like to take a moment to remember the people who sacrificed their lives for us while serving in the armed forces. Thank you. We will be forever grateful.
I don't know what this weekend brings you, but I hope you are able to fill it with moments of love and happiness. Until next time my friend,
