Take a moment

I don't know about you, but I feel as though I am just now today having a moment to rest after the whirlwind of holiday celebrations, travel, getting back to work and all the stuff life gives us after a trip away from home.

We were blessed to spend Christmas with the Williams Clan in West Tennessee. Love going there and being welcome by open arms by each and every person.

We were blessed to have meals prepared by Laura, Anna and even Kayla prepared a meal for the family over the weekend.

David got to see his nephews and that was precious time he enjoyed whether they were chatting, practicing duck calls, playing card games or playing music on their guitars.

On Christmas Day, David got phone calls from both his children and that was so good for them. He even took his phone around to the cousins so everyone could see his Abby after all these years.

All the gifts were opened and enjoyed, all the food was eaten or stored for later and love was around every table and no one left the Williams home without a few hugs goodbye and promises to see each other again soon.

Monday I took down the tree and it is stored away and will make it's way back to the storage building soon.

I am applying to several jobs again. I revamped my resume and doing an active search daily to make an effort to find the next opportunity of gainful employment.

In these quiet few days between Christmas and New Year's, I hope you take a moment to breathe, pray, be thankful and love on those around you. Don't be shy about telling someone how you care about them. They may not know you really care if you don't tell them. Please don't let the opportunity pass you by.
