Omelets and Ease

At the time of this entry, I am sitting in my mother- and father-in-law’s living room, typing on their computer and listening to lively discussion about Splash Mountain at Disney.

My belly is full of the most amazing omelets I’ve ever had (Pops, I’ll never be able to make them like you do) and Riley is sitting here watching me type.  Got that?  Riley is sitting. 

Quinn is getting his fill of attention and we’re all enjoying each other.

How many families can say that?  We enjoy each other.  I am so thankful for both sides of our family, and especially that most members of the family live close by.  It’s not something to be taken for granted, especially as we head into the Christmas season.

So many people have horror stories to share about their parents and in-laws…  I have blessings to report.  God has given me a wonderful family, and they’re not just people I tolerate – they’re people I love and cherish, respect, and admire. 

Our kids have 4 grandparents nearby, and Jon and I are blessed with advice, babysitting, hugs, text messages that say “hey how are ya, love you…” and omelets.  🙂

Feeling at ease with people is such a wonderful feeling, especially if it’s your family.  Thank you, God, for mine. 

Make sure you hug your loved ones close, even if they’re an “adopted” or “unusual” family – whoever makes you breakfast for dinner and squeezes you tight.

  2. Psalm 128
    A song of ascents.

    1 Blessed are all who fear the LORD,
    who walk in obedience to him.
    2 You will eat the fruit of your labor;
    blessings and prosperity will be yours.
    3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
    within your house;
    your children will be like olive shoots
    around your table.
    4 Yes, this will be the blessing
    for the man who fears the LORD.

    5 May the LORD bless you from Zion;
    may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
    all the days of your life.
    6 May you live to see your children’s children—
    peace be on Israel.
