Thursday Morning

You know that saying, " Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most." In a nutshell that is me. I have lists now that tell me what I should be doing. Today, I will go shopping for the water and the ice and all of the stuff that will be needed to pull this thing off. My son Ben came by last night with three arches for us that he had made. When I get them up I will take pictures so you can see what nice work he does. Megan will be here getting the vases ready for flowers on Saturday morning. Today the bridal bouquets will have to be made.

The dance floor will be going in and post holes dug for the lights to go on and we will be putting lights in all of the trees in the front yard and I keep loosing count of how many shepherd's hooks have to go in today. I have laundry to do and my oldest daughter and her family will be getting in today. Silly me, I was thinking of cooking dinner for 20 tonight and decided well maybe since my sons work at a pizza place maybe I will just have them bring pizza home for dinner.

This evening, though, I will be a happy camper. All of my kids will be home, all of my grand kids will be here.
All of the people I love will be together and it will be so good and filled with memories and lots and lots of laughter. Today, all of the ideas and the planning and the dreaming will finally be taking place. Tonight when I fall into bed, I know that I have been given more good than I of all people deserve. I am thankful for a strong back, and strong hands and when people thought we were out of our mind to keep having babies, I am thankful for a large family who steps in and helps us pull things like this off. Tired beyond tired we are but oh, so blessed and full of joy.

Have a wonderful day,

~Kim~

  3. Oh my, I'm getting tired just reading your post. But then I'm already tired to begin with. So much to do with so little time left. Now it's really coming to a head like they say.
    It will be a great time for all. Don't resist having a great time. The Holy Spirit is already there amongst you and everything will be so beautiful.

    I hope that you will sleep good tonight.
    Hugs,
    JB

    I have a grandson named Benjamin, 10 mo. old. He may be earning the nickname "Holy Terror". What about your Ben?
