Former First Lady Barbara Bush said, "At the end of your life you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent."
A couple of centuries ago, Jane Austen had this to say: "There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort."
No, I didn't stay at home this weekend, but I did go home to my mom and dad's. Family gathered, and we had a great time catching up on news, eating Dave's magic cookie bars, going on walks, playing games, and crowning our time together with homemade ice cream and chocolate sheet cake :) Anyone out there enjoy the comforts of home or friends and family like I did this holiday weekend? Tell me about it -- I love to hear your stories!
"...who can comfort you?" Isaiah 51:19
