Vacation Dreams

I'm yearning for a break, for an evening where my only "to do" is to walk down onto a dock and watch the sunset. Ah, restful bliss, how I yearn for thee!

Vacation Bible school program was awesome yesterday, the kids were pumped, and we all enjoyed a fun ending to the week. Lil' Princess refused to cooperate during practice, but jumped right in at the program, and had a great time singing and doing the actions. She proudly showed her daddy her classroom, and all her projects. Then it was time to really switch gears, and get ready for the prayer service that evening. It went smoothly, and the sisters seemed to be getting along better.

The funeral was this morning, followed by lunch, and then burial in a town an hour's drive away. All went fine, it just made for a l-o-n-g day. The family seems to be doing all right with each other, and came together for the events of the day. The grandkids are pretty young, and a couple of them took it hard, and cried during the service. It was pretty heartwrenching to look out and see these sweet little girls crying their eyes out for their grandpa.

It was good to come home and hug my girl. Now that she is bathed and tucked into bed, I need to come up with a message for tomorrow. Something coherent and meaningful would be nice! I have a few ideas, but I'm just so exhausted. Some vacation time is overdue!!!
