Do you know what these piles on the floor of our new guestroom/formerly daughter's room mean? THEY MEAN THAT THE DAUGHTER AND HER HUSBAND ARE HOME FOR A VISIT. (Please back away from the 'caps lock' button or someone will guess the level of excitement in this post.)
Both sets of New Son-in-law's grandparent's live a stone's throw from our house. (Which is a LOT closer then the Young Couple's home two states from here.) They have come to see NS-i-L's grandfather who is battling cancer, and to see D for the first time since his most recent diagnosis. But even with not great news from both sides of the family, we are having a sweet visit. Eating bar-b-que and laughing. Talking and reminiscing. Sharing hugs and smiles and tears. Because that is what families do best.
Please continue to pray for Dave and Charlie. And for more precious visits.
