Elephants and Evening Prayers

I've been thinking lately about the concept of eating an elephant. For now, here's an evening prayer I found on a former coworker's blog (thanks, Jason)....

"May He support us all the day long, till the shadows lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in His mercy, may He give us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last."
- John Henry Cardinal Newman

They're Here!

Nate & Tiff are here! We had a phone call early this morning, "We're in the driveway in our U-Haul. Please let us in." I'd half-wakened a few moments earlier, thinking I'd heard knocking, but wrote it off as a dream!

They had "travel adventures" out east somewhere--NY or PA--when their U-Haul died with a blown transmission. They had a several hour delay--first waiting for roadside assistance, then replacing the truck, then moving all their furniture to the new truck! But they're here now, unloading "even as we speak"!

Am I a happy mama? You bet! All my "little chicks" are only a local phone call away! I plan on enjoying it while I can!
