glen's Journal, 26 August 2013

I'm sitting in my tiny front porch of our home. My neighbor from across the street is moving and there is this giant white box with the letters PODS sitting in his driveway. It's wonderfully cool here tonight. There is a slight breeze. There are clouds. Lighting flashes ever so often. It's a great night to be perched on the porch. My neighbors dog needs to do his ritual bark. God only knows why he does that. Tonight's dinner involved the leftover's from last nights feast. I attempted to "smoke" a huge volume of ribs last night. The kids and spouses came over as we got the update. One daughter had a stabbing at her church last week. It's inter-city church dealing with homeless people, but the blood really created a mess. The other daughter is looking for a new job ..... Shadowing a medical person in the style of health care that is done in this clinic. It was a Norman Rockwell scene .... we filled the living room, one daughter snuggled on the couch with her head on her spouse's lap, the other daughter was on the floor with her ipad showing her mother pics of homes that some day may be in her future , as I and another son-in-law yelled at the tv in response to the Vikings games. I love nights like that. I love it when my 30 something daughters become little girls again. Yes, I did eat too much ...... But the trade-off was worth it.

What a lovely evening you described. Family is one of life's greatest gifts. I sometimes wonder how I will feel when my daughter eventually moves away from home. The different stages of life bring with them new challenges but also new rewards. It sounds like you enjoyed the rewards tonight :)
