"You're Lucky You Don't Have to Go To Work, Mom"

My daughter, said this to me yesterday.  "You're lucky you don't have to go to work tomorrow, Mom."  I said "I do have to work tomorrow, all week, 2 nights and even Saturday" - she said, "ya, but not at an office" - I had to laugh.
I "put my time in" at an office too, for 11 years.  I am blessed to be self-employed - but, that by no means, means I don't work.  She knows that.  I was thinking the other day, wow, I have a whole day to myself, to do what I want....I know, right?!?  My brother recently said, "you sure have handled the empty-nest well, you keep yourself busy."  I understood and I took it as the compliment it was meant to be.

I think on my own grandmother, mother - old ladies, still planning their day's, week's and month's activities.  Cooking, baking, planting, sewing, volunteering - busy women, working hard even when they could hardly walk.  They are my heroes, Godly examples of how to live your life to the best of your ability - all while loving and caring for others.

My mom, with her parents, my grandma and grandpa Kincaid.

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
