My 72 year old dad is coming to live with us right on the tails of our baby going to college. Just when I thought the nest would be empty:
Our oldest daughter moved home!
Her friend has joined us too!
My dad is coming to live with us and will be making his new home in what was our dining room!
Wanting the room to be festive for him, I wanted to find the bag of red balloons that we used for Victoria's graduation party; but I found the following touches that will make his room a bit cozier:
Dad's high school letter jacket hanging from the hall tree!
A picture of Dad and Mom on their 25th anniversary. Mom's well worn Bible. A family photo album with a nest on it!
Welcome to our nest Dad!
My day is joy and busyness intertwined,
God, keep me connected to Your vine.
Even when I wanted the welcome to include red balloons,
You gave alternatives to make Dad's new nest, a cozy room.
