We are thrilled to have guests at “The Parsonage”! My parents arrived late afternoon yesterday and are with us through tomorrow early afternoon. We’d love for them to be able to stay for church, but as my dad just moved to a new church it’s still a little early for him to take off a Sunday. Still having Bill and Sue visit for even a quick trip is a real treat! [smile]
I only have time for a quick post so I thought I would list the top 3 best things about having weekend guests:
- #3: The house is super clean. Even though we’ve not completely finished decorating, I wanted to present our new home in the best possible light to my parents so we spent yesterday cleaning top to bottom. I love waking up in our clean house and knowing I don’t have think about cleaning anything for a few days.
- #2: We get to be tour guides and tourists in our own town. I love the opportunity visitors provide to drive around and explore where I live.
- #1: Finally, I love getting to have real, in person conversations with people I love. The telephone is a marvelous invention, but nothing beats a conversation across the table with someone. Plus actually being together means I get plenty of good hugs from Mama and Daddy.
Gosh I miss living closer to my parents, but I also love having a house they can now visit.
