And The Journey Continues

Yes, it has been quite some time since I've written anything. Partially due to a hurting heart, and partially due to a joyous heart.
How can that happen you ask?

Well, the hurting part of my heart has to do with my son being deployed. I'm not worried per se, but more like part of me is missing since he left the states. Kind of a different feeling in that he has been gone from home over 4 years, and has been married for a good part of that time. I think it is more the distance and being out of country, and being in the Middle East. Probably all those things combined make my mom heart a little uneasy.
Those are the times that I remember that he is God's son before he was ever our son, and that God's plans for his life are for good! PTL!

The joy comes in knowing that we are going to be first time grandparents around the first part of December. Our daughter and her husband are expecting and are so excited at becoming parents. Choosing names, registering for shower gifts, all the planning that new parents do...they are busy doing. I'm busy planning on all the cute things I can make this precious little one...ooohh it's going to be so fun.

So, maybe it is a little easier to understand the mixed emotions.

Right now, I'm working on a secret for when the baby arrives, so I can't write about it yet...but boy is it going to be fun!

Stay tuned...thanks for following.

    I hear ya about your son - it is different than being in the states...or even in Paris!! But, He will comfort you ~ though, at the same time ~ you will miss him and that is ok! God is in the details of our life, as a beloved Sister/friend once told me ♥
