Today is a happy and sad day all rolled into one. As a Christian, I know that when another Christian passes on, they are with God. However, that doesn’t stop the hurt and sadness of the flesh. My husband’s grandmother/godmother passed away a little while ago. She has been battling leukemia and decided to stop all treatments. She was ready to meet the Lord. The fact that she was ready makes me happy. The fact that she (and her wisdom) are gone makes me sad.
The thing that makes me really sad right now is having to tell my kids. They loved Big Granny. My 4-year-old asked to go see her today. She lives 45 minutes away from here and we weren’t able to go because we are in the process of moving. How do I tell him that he will never see her again? How do I explain to him that I should have dropped everything to take him to see her? This is so hard, so hard.
Just when things seem like they can’t get any worse, they do. My soul is crying out to God for comfort and peace. I know He will provide it. I just don’t know when or how. Facing my kids in the morning is going to be the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I know we will all make it through this. We always do. God will carry us until we can carry ourselves.
It seems like the time is right to make some changes in my life. I feel like I have misled by some of the people who should be showing me the way. It is time to venture away from them and use the map on my own. This isn’t a decision that I am taking lightly. For those of you who are wondering about this, please know that this doesn’t have anything to do with my family. We are doing fine. We have some changes going on, too, that seem to coincide with the changes I am making. There comes a time when we have to figure things out without the help of ‘outsiders’ and for me this is one of those times.
It is kind of gloomy outside. That makes for a lazy day instead of a productive one. Unfortunately, I need a productive day today. I just hope the kids cooperate with me about it. So far, so good.
Have you ever had a day when everything under the sun stopped you from working? Today is that day for me. I am just now getting started at 6:37 pm! At this rate, I will be done around 3 am. Just in time to get a couple hours of sleep and start all over again….
It took four articles for me to cover all the drama of tonight’s episode….
Just a relaxing day with the family….
First the earthquake. Now Hurricane Irene. I am praying for everyone along the eastern seaboard. God bless!
