Family Reunion Alert!

Our grown children are both coming to visit us this week, one with the grandchild to boot, so it will likely be a rather light blogging week (I hear the sigh of relief from both Fragments-oppressed readers). I have strick orders to take extraordinary efforts to make the place look well cared-for.

If it looks shabby and neglected, the children might see us as incompetent and try to put us in a 'home', says the wife. She hears them having a private conversation: "They'll wander off into the pasture or both suddenly take naps with the bacon frying on the stove and set the house on fire, poor dears". My list, therefore, is long.

So, with it being Sunday and all, bretheren and sisteren, I can verily say that my dear bride hath been granted the Gift of Exhortation. And I am the only exhortee... and I'm sweepin' it here, boss.

So... it's Mother's Day. Perhaps not your day precisely (i won't stoop to straining definitions), but there are females in your family, many of whom actually are someone's mother, and today will likely be a particular source of joy and satisfaction for them. Therefore, when you rest your weary head on tonight's pillow, do so with the knowledge that today would not have been were it not for your responses when someone once asked, "Do you take this woman?". In a way, today is very much YOUR day. I hope it's a lovely one.

Dear God, if having a clean and tidy house is the main pre-requisite for staying out of the "home", I'm overdue for a visit from the guys in the little white coats! They're coming to take me away, haha, hehe, hoho... ;^P
