Unity of Love

A friend, also from the OALC, writes:
So my mom just left tonight  I bought her a ticket out here to help me out with organizing my house etc and I missed her! She stayed for 4 nights and 5 days!  It went really well. I didn't hide anything and there was not one problem or one thing mentioned which I was glad about! On Sunday her sister picked her up for church and no one preached or asked "Aren't you going?" Very thankful for my loving family! Even if they're thinking and feeling things they aren't saying Im glad its not shown and they just show love without involving religion. My kids also enjoyed grandma, except my youngest was a little upset he could watch a movie lol I was trying to be respectful of her beliefs so I let him just watch something in bed with my at night in bed  He did at one point ask her to put a movie in for him and she laughed and said I don't know how to do that. — feeling Thankful and Happy, I love my family!
For those of us feeling a leetle bit jealous (okay, ME), how about we just acknowledge that and then feel grateful that things are improving in some families. That grace and generosity is possible. Perhaps too late for some of us, but still . . . wonderful.

  1. I am feeling just a smidgen of jealousy, but I am very happy for her (I'm assuming it's a her) and I hope that she continues to have a relationship with her mom and her mom will be in her children's lives.

    I got a chuckle out of the youngest one and the movie and how her mom responded to it, I say good for her, it seems like her mom was trying and I applaud her for that.

    If only we all could put aside our differences and reach our hand out, instead of drawing a line in the sand.

    This was indeed wonderful, thanks for sharing.

    Happy 2
