Summer is Finally Here

Category: All Posts,Stories of Life – Rose – 9:40 pm

The weather ended up somewhere in the high 70’s today! It is 9:30 on Tuesday evening. Alex’s friend Micah is staying with us while his mom and sisters are away working in a children’s school in Mexico for the next week or so. Rich set up a tent in the backyard for the boys to sleep outside tonight and is now building a fire in the fire pit so they can make smores. It smells like a campfire in my home office right now.

Earlier this afternoon I was working in my home office, trying, trying, trying to get the creative energy to write, write, write!
It was so warm, I opened the window that is over the front yard. Soon I heard the lawn mower going and then some kind of muffled singing? Talking? Yelling? I got up and looked out the window to find Rich, shirt off, mowing the lawn and praying really loud in his prayer language…I wish you could have seen and heard what I was witnessing…I laughed out loud…you would really have to know my husband…I was thinking…this is a great picture of how he is going to age…an eccentric old man praying out loud not even aware that some of the neighbors might think he is out of his mind:)

  3. Praying in his prayer language while mowing the lawn? That is one blessed piece of land indeed.
