I will never forget the first time my mother-in-law came to visit us in our new home in Sandy, Oregon. It was a lovely, sunny week, and we had all sorts of plans for sightseeing and events in Portland. But we are blessed with a deck above the Sandy River with a fabulous view of rapids and a canopy of trees overhead. The morning after she arrived, we all sat out there with our coffee to enjoy the morning. Four days later we were all still wearing our pajamas and all still sitting on the deck.
