I am enjoying the blessing of spending part of this week with my parents in Kentucky. I’m always so thankful that my husband encourages me to go and visit them. They live four hours away, and with busy ministry lives, we don’t get to see them too often. To stay connected, I’ve come to see them by myself pretty much every spring for quite a few years.
I love our times together. We visit, eat delicious treats (see below), make runs to town, and share stories, laughs, and memories of their lives. I’ve heard many of their memories before, but I never tire hearing about the years of living during the Depression, the wars, and the simpler days of the 40’s and 50’s.
We’re having a great time! How about a little peek?
It’s been a great visit, and I still have a couple days left! I feel blessed, privileged, and a teeny bit spoiled (okay, more than a teeny bit!). Having family hours away from you is hard, but it seems our visits are all the more special. I don’t want to take a minute for granted. Now excuse me, while I go for another bowl of ice cream and a nice, long chat.
What do you do to stay connected to your family?
With love from a Kentucky porch,
