Here we are another Monday it was a great weekend , I took Kailyn and Amber to a play on Friday eve and dinner ,then Sat went to breakfast with a friend and then watched nephews overnight, and we met Liz and Miah and the kids in Saratoga and took a walk around town then off to our favorite spot nope not Starbucks but Ben and Jerrys, it was a great eve. Then Sunday went to some friends house for dinner.It was a busy weekend but a GREAT one. I am so thnakful for family and friends and my life is filled with many friends. Then today O get home and open my mailbox and what do I find but a very special letter from the Gabers and then my heart aches for Texas did I mention that its only 18 days till I see them ...THANKS BILL....I am excited beyond words I cant wait to see and hold and kiss Lily and Gabers,,..There is so much I want to do with them and teach them (only good things) he he he...I dont like this long distance grandparenting,so if all goes well we will be spliting out time ,when I think about it I get nervous but I know that it will all work out..

I am also super excited to be working at Good Tiding as part of the staff for the up coming Ladies conference, that place is and will always be near and dear to my heart. I am still struggling with the whole job situation not really loving it where I am but am greatful that I am employed so for now I guess I am where I am ..I am looking forward to warmer days and gardening and birds singing and warm summer eves with the sound of crickets ..but we will be hearing crashing waves first as we gear up for out family vacation with Bill and Sarah in May and my really good friend Lori and her daughter cassidy,,,We are very excited about that too...

until next time
may GOD richley Bless

Cant Believe I am trying this again

Well everyone else blogs so I thought I would give this one more try. I am so excited to be going to Texas in April to see Sarah and the kids Bill will be away but he did pay for me to come and see my daughter and grandbabies. I am so excited to finally get to me Autum thats Lilys BFF. This has been a tought winter for me I have missed Sarah more than ever and have realized how short life is and how quick the years go by. I have always felt that family is the most important thing but I just feel this need to be with Sarah. I keep saying to God you dont want us to really pack up and go , what about my mom what about Liz and Jeremiah ,and the kids here.He keeps reminding me on a daily bases that he has something more. Why is it so hard to trust in the unseen, why after being a christian a good part of my life is it still hard to trust? I have seen God do amazing things in my life and the life of my children why would I even doubt that he would use me someplace else.
As strange as this seems I just cant get Autum off my mind,everyday I read Lacys blog and I am so convicted by her strenght,she seems to trust God with all of it and I have a hard time with just a little piece of it, Well as most of you know I have been a nurse for well my whole life but I have never worked much with children ,although I have always felt thats what God really wanted me to do (and I might add I am really fun around kids just ask my grandkids.....) I have never felt stronger about meeting someone as I do Autum kinda funny how God has His hand in all this I was not even going to be going to Texas as we are doing a vacation in Florida with Bill and Sarah ,Funny how God made the funds available and I was able to take time off from work and How Lacy has a hard time trusting strangers taking care of her child,God is this my calling are you asking me to go and help with Autum ,, I am asking that all you join me in prayer as I seek the Lords will in our life as I go in April Lord make it clear, maybe it not Autum but maybe some other child but I am asking the Lord for direction..
Did I mention that I have 3 amazing grandchildren here .....
