Then just as two are fighting, I go over to start some coffee because I just needed a calming moment. I looked out the window to see Benaiah standing with a homemade fishing pole at a hole that he filled up with water. Wondering what he was doing, I asked, "What are you doing?" To which he replied, "I'm fishing for alligators". Now if you know Benaiah, you know that he doesn't talk right (we're working on that). I had to ask him what he said to make sure I heard him correctly. Sure enough, he was fishing for alligators. I'm so glad he didn't catch one!!!!
Everyone ran off to bed, I sat down to check a few things online, and I looked out the patio door to a beautiful moon. As I stood there and watched, a bat was flying in the back yard. Now, usually I'm not a fan of bats, but that one was doing a fine job and catching bugs, I just know it.
I really enjoy where we live. The sights and sounds are so lovely. The neighbors are great, which helps. The dreams can come to life, and the children can be a part of that, hopefully something that will be truly a blessing to us and our community. Time to close things up and head to bed. A work day tomorrow, blueberry picking, and maybe some fun in the evening. Our days get full, but I wouldn't want them any other way.
