I love weekends.

Being that I stay at home with Park, I often find myself having to think about what day of the week it is. But, even so, when Thursday rolls around I start to feel that swell of excitement, just as I did when working outside the home.

I treasure that Chris is off with us on Fridays. And although it is true that the weekends of a pastor's family look a little different, they are still sprinkled with family, friends, and the stuff memories are made of.

Nothing out of the ordinary took place this particular weekend, but I loved it just the same. Chris and Park spent hours in the yard on Friday. I couldn't really give you the specifics on what all they did, but I do know that our grass looks great and our flowerbeds are coming along nicely. I sat outside and soaked up some rays while watching how much joy they both get from yard work.

The rest of the weekend was filled with swimming, time with Chris' family, finishing up projects around the house, church, a picnic by the lake with friends and late night movie dates once Park was tucked in bed.

But, as the upcoming weekdays close in on us quickly, I also realize how thankful I am for their presence, as well. Without them, it's quite possible I wouldn't treasure the weekends quite as much as I do.

*I hope you and your families are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, too. As we enjoy ourselves, Chris and I thank God for all the freedoms the men and women in our armed forces have secured for us.
