Not much going on here that is blog worthy. I have lots of stuff percolating, just not to a point that it would be interesting! We have been doing yard work. Working on our well. We got it repaired and we are ecstatic! It looked like the well was going dry, but that turned out not to be the case. I am just in awe of all the things that my husband can do! He's such a great guy!
We have been visiting with family as well, as I am sure many of you have been. Father's Day and all! I was really struck this Father's Day, at how all the fathers in my family worked over their fathers day weekend to make their homes and/or the homes of their loved ones better. My fil had us come over and make some clippings, because he knew I have been wanting to get some of the standard flowering shrubs going on in our yard. So we had a nice visit with him while doing a little yard work with him and his wife. It was very nice. Then my Dad worked with my youngest brother doing yardwork at his home one day over the weekend, as my brother had a tall order to get done, and not much time. Then Dad took a day off to visit for Father's day on Saturday, and followed up with working with my older brother (though younger than me, I'm the eldest in our family) on a bathroom remodeling project and a bunch of other things he had going on. Through out the whole weekend my husband worked on things around the yard and home, he is currently on a gardening kick and is constantly planting, weeding, watering, or walking and planning. Not too mention the efforts he is going to in bringing the birds and squirrels in and keeping them fed! He's a hoot! His next project is not as much fun though, we need a new starter put in our truck. Kay-sa-ra-sa-ra!
I guess the theme that seemed prevelant throughout this weekend was the way fathers show love to their families through the care they take of them, the effort they make at making a good home. I was grateful at how blessed we are on both sides of our family to have men (I'm focusing on them because of Father's Day, Ya'll! I know we all work hard, too!) who love their families and work hard to not only bring in an income, but to help make their homes beautiful and welcoming. These are tangible ways fathers show love. Every man is not equipped to be as expressive in a way that we often times think we would prefer. But, if we will observe the commitment many fathers serve their families with, I'd say we would hear the message loud and clear - "I LOVE YOU, I LOVE OUR FAMILY! I WANT TO HELP US HAVE A BEAUTIFUL HOME AND LIFE TOGETHER!" This weekend that message rang loud and clear! I heard it, I did! Did you?
