This past weekend hubby and I traveled to Idaho and helped baby girl and her husband move to Reno. Our son-in-law’s year-long pharmacy residency begins. A long stretch for him. A transitional year for them both.

A lovely gift for us that they’re now 2 hours away instead of 12.

Yep. The aches from the past weekend are well worth it. Each moan and groan is a “thank you, Jesus” in disguise.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for families and for new opportunities and experiences you place us in. Bless us in the doing and turn our groans into songs of praise. Amen.

WHAT ABOUT YOU? Do you have family members for whom your heart aches to be near?

Good news Carol, glad to hear they're closer now!

I'm very fortunate to have most of my close family very close... within about 3 miles!

@ Chris - 3 miles? Awesome!

So glad to hear that the move is over! Not only is the drive only 2 hours away, but what a beautiful drive although maybe tricky in winter weather. A new stage of life for you? Kids done with the college scene! I am thankful both my kids live within about an hour of home. I am thankful for a good relationship with both my kids. That's not something to take for granted♥ Thank you, Jesus!

From Carols Quill said...

@ Pam - yes, it is a new stage in life for all of us. Thank you, Jesus!

Boo-hoo, boo-hoo! That one boo-hoo for each distant child! One son lives one mile away and all our baby grand girls are within this area. But the other son lives in California and our daughter lives in Orlando. I miss them s-o-o-o much! I'm so happy for you, Carol, that your precious ones have moved so much closer. Such happiness! Snoopy loves to dance to that kind of music! {{wink-wink}}

@ Lynn - awww, sweetie. Your kids are all spread out! Hugs.
