Mom, I know you don't care for Lee Iacocca, (I'm thinking of a certain incident between you, a faulty seatbelt in our brand-spanking-new, first-one-in-town, woody mini van, and a suggestion that Mr. Iacocca do something unmentionable with said seatbelt if it doesn't get fixed right this time! When I say this.) but I loved the quote. I'm sure if he knew that seatbelt was giving a lovely family like ours problems, he personally would have taken care of it properly, but I digress.
The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works is the family. ~Lee Iacocca
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I put Ben to work. Hey, someone has to clean around here! Luckily, he enjoys his chores, and doesn't get at all overwhelmed by the stack of laundry smiling at him each morning. He could teach the rest of us a thing or two.
We said goodbye to Jim this weekend, well more like "see you in two weeks," but it was still hard. Not nearly as difficult, however, as it will be to say goodbye to our loved ones here in10 days. I'm not looking forward to it, I hate goodbyes.
Please pray for Jim as he starts his new job today.
"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard."
