My Sweet Serenity

I'm back from sabatical once again. It's been hard to come up with anything interesting to write about (or at least something that might seem interesting to someone other than myself!). Alex and I have just been enjoying life. The rain has kept us indoors a lot, but we've ventured outside to tackle some much needed yard work this weekend. I joke that we have the 2nd worst landscaping in our neighborhood, second only to a man two doors down who keeps a rusty broken-down car, rolled up dirty carpet and an old recliner chair in his driveway. We've tackled the weeds, but oh how I'd love to do more than just try to maintain what landscaping we have. I dream of putting down fresh mulch and ripping out some of the 20-year old holly bushes that are just not so good-looking anymore. Someday, someday...

Last night, we went to a fish fry with my parents, a friend and her little boys and her parents. It was so peaceful to sit on a deck overlooking a little lake just enjoying the scenery and company. I feel like that kind of sums up my life right now. Things are peaceful and serene. God is good. I have wonderful friends, I feel closer to my family, I'm so blessed. I pray that the same is true for you.
