"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

52 Weeks of Blessings- week 32-- Company

The blessing of company-- as in those who are willing to travel to the ends of the earth {the middle of no where} to visit.  My sister and 2 of her kids came to visit on Thursday.  It's been a year since we got together and it is nice to have her company.  The whole family wasn't able to all be in one place this summer because of high gas prices and work schedules.  Because we are the two who live in this state and the rest live in another, she came over for a visit.  We however live the farthest away and she has the opportunity to see the rest of the fam more often. {It's only a 3 hr drive to visit them and an all day drive to come see us. } It's been a great visit, but I think they will be heading home tomorrow.  This weeks blessing is that of having company over!

I think visits are always all the more special when they come just to see you. (rather than fitting you into their vacation)

That is a great blessing! You always come up with good ones! Although at the end of this very long summer that was very FULL of visitors sometimes the blessing can be when the company is leaving... (I know I'm HORRIBLE!, SORRY!!) ha ha
