Brad and I and the girls were invited to spend Friday evening at our friend's Ryan and Megan's house. We haven't made the time to spend time with them in quite a few months. We have been going over there for dinner, cards and conversation since our girls were little. I can remember Ryan and Megan's house being one of the first places, other than family, that we took Peyton and Paige after they came home from the hospital. They have added two boys to their home since then, so it makes for a lively evening! We were grateful for the upstairs toyroom. We spent lots of time laughing, and it was so good for all of us. I felt actual contentment on the way home from their house. I know that I get daily grace from the Lord to be content with whatever circumstances, but it is great when it gets handed to you effortlessly for just a little while. I felt very blessed to be part of my own little family, and part of our circle of friends who love us.
