Happy Father's Day!



I suppose you could say that Adam was the first man who made shopping difficult.

We are in our apartment. With the help of our son, daughter-in-law, and one of our granddaughters (two others were attending a church meeting) we have the apartment looking like our home. Two-thirds of our boxes are being stored in an air-conditioned warehouse until our new home is ready. Most of our furniture is in the apartment. Some we gave away and some is stored in the warehouse.

After church, I am so blessed to celebrate Father's Day with my husband, a wonderful father. Joining us are our two children, their spouses, and all seven grandchildren. Three fathers (Johnny, our son, and our son-in-law) are celebrating Father's Day. In addition, Johnny's birthday (June 17th) is being celebrated. What a special day of celebration!

Spiritual Sundays are hosted by Ginger and Charlotte. To visit other participants, click here.

Congrats on such a successful move, Sally. Obviously you all were very organized since you knew exactly what would go in storage and what would go in the apartment... I'm SO happy for you.

I know that your kids are thrilled to have you closer--at least the ones who live in that area.

Happy Father's Day to you and yours.
Hugs,
Betsy

Good luck with your eventual move into your new home. I moved to a rental and put things in storage, hoping to be in a permanent location within six months. That was almost two years ago.

Sounds like y'all had a wonderful Father's Day.
