I'm getting really good at this moving thing.
I've done it 8 times in the last 4 years--once for me and the rest while helping my three kids.
|Moving John to college 4 years ago|
My kids not only get their parents' free help, but we load them up with housewares and furniture, too.

And you know what?
It's awfully good for me, too.
All of this lifting and packing and scrubbing keeps me grateful.
Grateful I'm healthy and young enough to do it.
Happy our children even want us around.
Thrilled to have a reason to make so many purposeful road trips and spend quality time with each individual kid.

This life of ours is spinning by.
How do I keep from missing any more of it?
