Milestones in our lives can be
joyous or painful.
Yesterday was another one of those
If Dad had lived, He and Mom would
have celebrated their 42nd anniversary.
Wouldn't it have been cool to have them
over for dinner and rejoice in all of the
years they have served together in churches,
at the radio station, in International
But it is not to be.
Mom went up to visit my brother over this
time and to do some things at the grave site.
It makes me sad to think of her out there
alone weeding and planting and missing
Daddy. But, this is where she is in her
life and I cannot change it.
I suppose to want to is kind of like saying
that God made a mistake...and I know that
can't be...but to watch your mother grieve
is a very hard thing to do.
I am very thankful for the parents God gave me.
I certainly wouldn't trade them for any others,
even knowing that Daddy would go home to Heaven
It just disconnects the heart from the things of
this world a little bit more every time we lose
one of these dear people.
On a very different kind of milestone...
Mikey has just discovered that it is just
over a month until he can get his permit...
He is such a clown!
Color him HAPPY!
He will be a very good driver, if his foot
doesn't get too heavy on the gas pedal.
We have a State Trooper who lives in our
neighborhood. Perhaps there will be an
opportunity for some one on one with him
to learn the dangers and helpful hints to
being a great defensive driver.
Thanks for being there, you lovely bloggy friends.
I appreciate all the kind words about the blog
color changes. I love to mix things up.
Warren liked it better the old way. I told him
not to worry...I'll be changing it up again
Tears and smiles.
Isn't it crazy how they mix together to make
up our emotions and how quickly one can change
This is life.
How are you living yours?
Taking time for both?
Blessings on this day!
