AC and I are going to help our youngest daughter move to a new little apartment tomorrow and that is a rather scary thing when you think that we both have gimpy backs. Yikes! We are the moving crew????? Hard to believe. At least she is just a poor student and doesn’t have heavy appliances or bulky furniture to be carted around. Just one small apartment of “stuff”, to be moved to another small apartment. Shouldn’t be too bad.
I remember my dad and grandpa coming and helping us move each time we went from student housing to student housing and then to our little townhouse when John got his first teaching job. I don’t know what we would have done without them. We didn’t have two cents to put together and they gave freely of their time and energy to help us. They came with their gimpy backs and sore legs and drove the truck and then carried what they could. They lifted our hearts and spirits right along with the boxes and bookcases. Love enables us to do many things, and love will help us move our daughter into her new little place tomorrow. Hopefully we will make many happy memories for her to look back on in years to come and they will warm her heart like the memories of my dad and grandpa helping us, are warming mine today.
We will be gone for a few days so I won’t be doing much writing or posting blogs in the next little while. Come visit me again in mid- September and I will tell you how the move went.
Talk to you all later.
