My parents are down south for a few months yet and my in-laws will also be leaving for the warm south soon. I think it is great that they have a chance to go away from the cold weather and spend time together. Both couples are very busy while they are up here with social agenda and both are active in the lives of their many grandchildren. It is good to have time to reconnect with just each other. I hope someday that Steve and I will have the opportunity to do the same. Actually, I pray for it with all of my heart.
My father has become quite the photographer since he retired a decade ago. He takes some amazing pictures. One if his favorite subjects is wildlife, especially birds. There are a few pictures he's taken through the years that are just so neat. Yesterday, he sent me a few pictures that he's taken down there. I loved the one of my step-mom by the crocodile (or was it an alligator) warning sign but I thought the one I'm showing was just precious. It really makes me think of so many wonderful couples who have been together for decades and still adore each other. I do believe that if we choose right, then this lasting affection is the reward God gives us for that choice. Thanks Dad for the picture.
Have a great Thursday everyone.
