Guess What?

Guess who will be coming in the driveway today? Only the other direction. Isn't that exciting? Well it is for me. After a whole year of traveling the United States, in every kind of weather, they are going to be home. Of course, we would be having downpours and thunder and lighting today. The storms have chased them home.

I will get to hear all about the travels. I will get to hear all about their new place in North Carolina. I get to feed them. I get to bake and bake. I am so excited. I feel like today is better than Christmas. I am sure the boys will be taller than me.

So a very busy day today, I need to get myself in gear and get about a million things done before they make it home.
This grandma/mom is counting her blessings and feel like its the best Christmas present ever. Tonight they will be sleeping at our house.
God is so good!!


Today, God gives me the desires of my heart, my kids will be home. I will not count the days as they pass, but embrace every tiny bit of time we have. I will not look to the goodbyes, but to the joy of the moment. In every grain of sand, that pours from the bottle. I won't even try to catch the sand in my hand, but open my hands and give back to God freely. Following God is always better, than safety and wishing things were this or that. Dreams are hard work, and full of sweat and tears.
I am glad that our kids all have dreams and they have had the guts to accomplish those dreams.

OH! Kim, I know exactly what you mean by just living in the moment when our children are home, our son and his family just left from a visit here and it was wonderful! Wishing you a very happy and blessed memorial Day weekend.
