|My Grandaddy, my 3 cousins and I|
Back from another fun-filled and busy weekend with family and friends!
During his celebration, I shared how much of an inspiration he’s been to me over the years and how he’s continuously motivating me to be better and better. He’s a very straight-forward man – he definitely says what he means and means what he says, but it’s always done in a non-condesecending way. He grew up in an era where family values were important and he passed that down to his children and grandchildren.
Whenever we talk, he asks me 3 questions: (1) “How’s your pastor?”; (2) “How’s your husband and the kids?”; and (3) “How’s your job?”
Faith, Family and Work – keeping those things in balance and harmony helps keep so much in perspective. I’ve been extremely busy and just plain tired the past month or so and I really needed the time to just step back and evaluate what was really important and what wasn’t.
