Well worth it.

I sit in my back yard, typing on the laptop, watching my children swim in the pool. It has been a long wait to get here. First, the school year had to end, which it finally did. (Amen!) Then there was the hours of pool preparation and work landscaping in the backyard. (Okay, still some yard work left to do.) But I am at a point where I can finally sit under the pavillion in the shade with a nice breeze blowing, watching my children play, listening to some classic Beach Boys, and catching up on the blog (it has been way too long).

It is wonderful, but it did not happen by accident and it took quite a bit of effort.

And to think, this does not compare to that which awaits in heaven. That too did not happen by accident, and there was some work involved...most of which was accomlished well before I was even born.

Hopefully I can get to the other computer and post a few pics later. But right now it is so nice out here.

...fun, fun, now that daddy took the T-Bird away...
