So yesterday was our family Easter dinner. I was blessed to have my sons home for a meal. My younger son arrived early and helped me with moving furniture and some heavy lifting. My older son arrived later bearing beautiful tulips and a gorgeous card.
I realized how incredibly lucky I am. They are both good kids (ok...they're in their 20's) and they both love their mom. As we sat around after dinner, I realized I was content just having them in the same room. It doesn't happen often enough that both of them are there at the same time. I see them both pretty regularly but they are both busy with their own lives and fate rarely brings them to the house at the same time.
So for a few hours yesterday, my empty nest was full again and I absolutely loved it. That's not to say I don't enjoy and love my empty nest...I do!! I enjoy the freedom and quiet that an empty nest provides. But sometimes, I crave that nest being full...a reminder of why the nest is there.
And those are my random thoughts this morning...
