Easy to please …

familyStay on good terms with each other, held together by love. Be ready with a meal or a bed when it’s needed.” Hebrews 13:1

Now that I’m alone, I can’t imagine spending summers in Arizona confined indoors all day when the sun is at its peak. Glen and I used to hang out together, make up excuses to get out of the house now and then to go to a movie or hit all the Goodwill stores and then would cozy in for the evenings to watch Netflix. That doesn’t sound appealing to do alone.

I have been talking with my daughters about spending six months in Arizona and six out East. I can float between both of them and make some side trips to visit friends. I’ve been sleeping in my youngest grandson’s bedroom and keep telling Karen to put me in a corner in her large family room and divide it off with screens around the bed. For some reason, Karen doesn’t think this would be kind to her mother. I assure her, “I just need a bed and a place to put my stuff, and I’ll be okay.” We’ll see how it shakes out when I return this winter.

I’m grateful I get along well with my three children. Our family is held together with love. And, they are willing to give me a bed and great meals, and I would do the same for them.

Lord, thank you for the options I have in my life. Amen.
