What a week – in the news and in my home – and I bet in yours too! My TV died, my senior mom’s radio handle broke, her cassette player died (do you have any idea how hard it is to find a cassette player any more? Especially an easy to use one?) And our weather yo-yo-ed from 80 to 50 to 70 to 30 and then some! The last two days have been quite delightful though. My grandkids helped me set up my new Vizio TV – the cheapest I could find – and it was less expensive than the one I originally bought, lighter, and yet bigger! Gotta love technology and BOY, are my aging eyes appreciating the bigger size – from 13″ to 22″! It may not be huge, but it’s an easy size for me to move easily. Very important in our household!
We also wrestled with their Minecraft accounts as this grandma did some brain-stretching to learn how to add mods to Minecraft (NOT as easy as you would think it would be),
while enjoying several games of Carcassonne as well – along with some important lessons on both humility when winning and the art of gracefully losing – for all of us. 🙂 ).
I was also quite excited to have them help me with a small but important ministry opportunity. We are coloring some of the decorations for our church’s upcoming Vacation Bible School.
It’s a LOT of coloring and I’m sure I’ll do most of it. But every bit of help is awesome and it’s such a fun way to teach them about giving in service to our church home. Won’t they have fun come June when they see our parts up and can enjoy knowing they had a hand in helping prepare for VBS. It’s definitely a fun way of leaving a spiritual legacy of service in their hearts.
It’s definitely been a busy week around my Sandwich Generation family! How about you and yours?
