Your whole week has been consumed with taking care of grandbabies, helping plan a wedding that will happen in less than two weeks, helping family with the care of an elderly grandpa, visiting your parents in another state for a day trip and lunch, studying a little for a continuing education class, doing normal household chores, making daily runs to take our teen to driver's ed at a big high school, visiting a far off grocery store looking for ingredients for the wedding shower, going out with family to test food at a place that caters weddings, cooking this and that for all that family to eat here and there, no naps, lots of coffee, and I think I read the Bible a couple of times along the way of this week.

|helped my man at two services on Sunday|
|attended a bridal shower with my daughter-in-love on Saturday|
|fixed my teen a birthday supper on Thursday|
|drove to see Mom and Dad on Monday|
|quietly sitting and thinking|
