Whenever I can’t sleep, I have the most random thoughts going through my mind. Drives me crazy when I can’t shut my brain off.
I heard on the radio last week, that in October we had more day’s in which it snowed then day’s that the sun shined. Even though the snow never lasted, that’s a lot of day’s without the sun. Lots of rain, cold, snow and grey gloomy days. Depressing.
On the bright side… So far, November has been nicer and the sun has been shining…and causing more people to smile…especially the farmers.
I’m going to pretend that I did not hear about the predicted rain and snow for the end of the week
The nice weather and the shining sun has enabled the farmers to finally start harvesting their crops this week. What a beautiful sight to see all the combines, and tractors working out in the fields. They will be going day and night to get everything harvested and fields plowed before it’s too late. I pray for their safety.
I have been seeing quite a few deer on my drive home from work in the evenings. Last week, I was driving in the dark and it was snowing hard for a period of time and deer ran out in front of me. Hitting a deer is one of my fears about driving at night, at this time of year. Thank God I didn’t hit any.
One year ago today, little lady got the “pretty pink” cast taken off her leg. It was snowing and the roads were bad so the school I worked at was called off. We celebrated the cast removal by her finally getting to take a bubble bath.
I am grateful that she has not had any more incidents of getting hurt.
I had a blast with my girlfriends this past weekend. We talked and laughed…and ate junk food…sang and danced…and watched movies…and talked some more…and we stayed in our pj’s all weekend.
I am truly blessed and honored to be called their friend.
My youngest son flew home here this past weekend to see his best friend, who has been stationed in Italy for the past year and is home on leave and is being sent to Afghanistan for the next 12-15 months. I took care of this young man and his sister when they were quite young, in my daycare. The 2 of them have been best friends ever since. He and his family are very special to us. I pray for this young man and his family.
Even though I didn’t get to see much of my son, he took the time here and there to spend with me…and to play with the little people that love him immensely!…he took the little people and I out for lunch yesterday(he paid), then spent the afternoon with us and ate a family supper with us. My oldest son was able to join us too which made it that much more special. I love cooking for my family!
I took him to the airport early this morning. He has flown back to the home he’s made for himself. The hardest part is that I don’t know when I will see him again.
It is always hard for me to let go.
Yet, I am thankful for the kind of person he is and that he is out pursuing his dreams…that he is out living his life and living it so well…so I must let go.
My home feels empty tonight without his presence. I miss my kids. I miss my grandchildren.
When I was looking for a pen in my desk tonight, I found a piece of paper that had these quotes on it.
Reading these made me remember the truth…
Hold your children
with open arms, so
they always know
they can come
home to you.
Don’t cry because
it’s over, smile
…and they made me smile. I have a lot to smile about.
This is my 200th post. Wow!
