Last night, our home group insisted on having our regular weekly gathering without us.
As I wrote before, Mike has been encouraging the group to stay in daily contact via email, sharing the ups & downs of life. So I wrote to everyone, “I have been very, very busy lately and I’m concerned that my family is not getting enough of my time — especially the girls.”
Kay wrote, “I’m slowly but surely getting worn down by Jon’s absence.”
So the group organized a coup. We don’t know where they gathered, or what they did. Instead, I read stories to my children. Kay & I sat around doing nothing — together. We were tired and fell asleep really early. It was great.
(Funny, I was just reading in Jason Evan’s blog about leaving the gathering he leads to spend time with his tired wife. Look for the Sept. 18th entry.)
Thanks, you guys. You are such a blessing. You must love us or something.
