Lately I have been overwhelmed with all that is going on in my life. Not only am I raising our grandson, who happens to be right under my feet at all times, but I am also helping my husband in the office of his business. Sorting out paperwork and also it is tax season so I am trying to get a start on that. Then also I have been helping my mother in law clean, fix and paint her farmhouse they just bought and are about ready to move into. I enjoy helping others, when I can.
In the mix of all that craziness we are working with our architect for the plans of our new home. Meetings and phone calls with changes and rough drafts. Yep pinterest these days has been helping my ideas go wild. From the front door I love to the type of windows I would like. It has been fun but also very overwhelming. In the back of my mind I keep thinking I need to start going through all our things. Boxing up stuff to keep and making a pile to donate. My mind is on overload. Let’s just say God has been listening to me a lot more lately. That is one thing I will always be thankful for, prayer!
My husband is good to me. He notices when I need a break. When I have to much going on and need to take a deep breath and relax.
The other night was one of those days. He came home, took one look at me and said ” go get ready, I’m taking you out “. He called and had our son come over to sit with our grandson and we were off. I don’t get to get away often. Once we hit the backroad and headed southwest towards Oklahoma I knew where we were going. A little over an hour drive on small town roads and by the lake we were there. Drakes! A small family owned resturant. They have the best country fried steak and chocolate pie. I have been enjoying this restaurant since I was 16. But not until I brought my husband for the first time some 17 years ago did I really start loving the place. It is our place. Just a couple times a year we stop in. Enjoying the coffee, food and conversation. Just the two of us. My heart is full. I love this man and all the little things he does for me.
