What A Week!

We just got home from a wonderful, relaxing week that allowed me time to step back and reflect on everything going on in our lives. It is nice to have time to see and appreciate all the blessings in life. My mom came up for Nathan's First Communion and we went to Evansville, Indiana to the Daughters of Charity Convent. We spent the entire week on the grounds visiting my great aunt, who is a nun living there. It was really great to visit with her. Since moving to Mississippi we missed her annual trip home twice, and have been planning to visit her for about 5 years, so being able to go was a blessing and a gift that I will never forget. The time there with her and on the grounds was priceless. We had time to relax, fish, play with the kids, visit with some of the residents(most were in retreat and not talking), saw lots of wildlife, visit the chapels on the grounds and spend lots of quiet time walking the grounds. From every angle there was a beautiful sight. It was so exciting ,while we were there the earth actually moved under our feet;we had our first experience with an earthquake that shook us out of bed at 4:30 Friday morning. Saturday we drove home and Celebrated Nathan's First Communion on Sunday, then in the afternoon on we went to the zoo to have a little more time with Granny before she went home.
