I hope you all had a good 4th of July (even if it was just another day in your country!) We had a lovely lunch with my sister and father and then, once it got dark, hubby, the kids, and I set off a few fireworks in the driveway before calling it a night.
The best part of our 4th celebration turns out to have been the lovely phone call we had with my husband’s mother. She’s been in declining health and mental acuity since the fall, but on Tuesday she was alert and cogent and we had a long, lovely chat.
And then Thursday morning she went home to be with Jesus.
We’re grateful she didn’t suffer for a long, protracted time. And we’re grateful that we were able to tell her how much we loved her earlier in the week.
I’d love to know what, if anything, you did to celebrate!
