With all the hype about this most recent lottery, I’ve reflected on my personal winnings. I’ve been lucky enough to watch my two step sons grow to be fine men, husbands, and dads. I hit the jackpot when it comes to my daughter-in-laws…such fine women, wives, and moms.
Robert and I live in the same town as our four grandbabies and have the honor of seeming them often.
Recently with my Robert in a cast and my own tumble on ice, there have been a few tasks that we’ve not been able to do. While I know our kids a super busy, I texted out a number of things we needed. Instantly my phone was beeping with “consider it done” “no problem” and the like.
They were as good as their word and brought treats, changed light bulbs, stored boxes in the attic, took down outside lights, and basically did things that were too high or too heavy for me to do alone.
This morning my battery was dead. The trickle charge that my step son and daughter-in-law helped set up for me the night before did not work (because the battery was beyond help). So my daughter-in-law left work to jump the car and then follow me to the battery store.
Such blessings. Instead of “making it rain” with money, they have showered us with such love, trust, support, and thoughtfulness that we feel we’ve hit it big!
