A Little Sunshine

 This was posted on FB and pretty much sums up my prayer life recently.  
I'm thankful for a weekend that left me feeling restored.  My thoughts are now clear and that overwhelmed feeling is gone.  I didn't cook one meal this weekend.  Chuck made dinner Friday night and then he ran through the drive thru for breakfast Saturday.  

He did that since I was busy making dessert for our evening plans.  
Saturday afternoon we headed over to visit with Chuck's cousin.  This is the family where I babysat their boys, Abe and Eli, for six years.  You often hear about friends that are like family well this is family that is like friends.  

Besides the dessert we all took the easy route.  Angel picked up fried chicken and sides.  I was suppose to bring rolls and Chuck suggested we pick some up from a restaurant chain.  Worked for me!

The kids had a blast playing and the adults had a nice time catching up.  We all decided we must get together more often. 

Sunday was another relaxing day.  We didn't make it to church.  Chuck didn't wake me up in time.  He figured I could use the extra sleep.  I admit, it was nice.  I suggested we head out for brunch before we went to visit the in-laws.  

All of the cousins showed up while we were visiting.  The kids had fun playing while we were able to chat with the adults.  When we left we ran a quick errand and headed home.  I had plans for dinner, but we ended up running out for a quick bite.  We can't dine out like this often, but I sure felt spoiled not making meals.  Not to worry I'll be back at it tomorrow! 

I only picked up my camera twice this weekend.  The second shot was of my silly girl.
She said, "Hey Mama! My, what big eyes I have!" 

My little sunshine always makes life better!  I'm thankful that I was able to recharge this weekend.  Now I say, bring on Monday!

May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
