After about 4 weeks of recovering from a surgery, I felt comfortable enough to drive. Between that, walking and being able to cook, I was regaining some resemblance of normalcy.
After 6 weeks, I returned to work. It felt so good to be back with my team and contributing to our community once again.
This past weekend, the kids and I helped my husband Randy plant flowers at his work in preparation for upcoming family camp.
I enjoyed being with my family, soaking up some sun and getting our hands dirty planting.
During this process, I have learned to lean on others and ask for help. It has been a humbling experience to say the least.
Have you had to rely on others for a period time? If so, I’d love to hear about it.
I am a planner and have my todo list. When I accomplish a task, I scratch it off. Homework√ Laundry√ Groceries√ Clean house√ However, lately the idea of play has been on my mind.
So, this weekend we sent our son to Hume Lake for a high school youth group winter camp. My husband Randy and I had the weekend with our daughter Alicia. We spontaneously grabbed coffee/chai…
and drove over the hill to Saratoga to eat at one of our favorite restaurants called Bill of Fare. My daughter and husband ate pancakes and I devoured rice, eggs and bacon. Yum!
Then, we drove 30 minutes north to attend the San Mateo Truck & Jeep Expo. It was the first time we’ve attended anything like this. It was fun walking around looking at all the 4 wheel drive vehicles and after market upgrades. Below, I am in sitting in a Polaris sand rail. That’s what I’m talkin’ about!
I understand the importance of work. My aim is to play more. In fact, God’s word encourages us to in Zechariah 8:5
“The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.”
Do you balance life with work and play? I’d love to hear how you do both.
As we remember all who labor in our nation today, I am reminded of a bible verse.
That each may eat and drink, and
find satisfaction in all their toil – this
is a gift from God. – Ecclesiastes 3:13
I agree with King Solomon’s writings, because today we moved furniture into our place. It was satisfying decorating together and enjoying the fruit of our labor.
How did you celebrate Labor Day?
Remembering all who labor. Thank you!
“Come to me, all who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest.” – Jesus
