Trip from SS to Lubbock and back to SS.
We took a side trip - went by and visited with Joshua, Dessie,
Shell and Kyla! MUCH needed momma and grannee time!
They met us at the Dairy Queen in Graham. It is a very quiet and nice place to visit when we can't get by the house. Thankful that it is there - with good parking for the truck. Thankful, too, that they don't care how long we stay, nor how loud Grannee and the grandkids get! LOL
Some days I miss being a Momma so much. Oh, I know that I am still a Momma - will always be Momma. But I miss the day to day stuff of being a Momma. Sigh.
My children run thru my memories so much lately.
I see their faces, I hear their voices.
I can feel their arms about me when we hugged and snuggled
And the regrets of my soul are those times and days that I took
it all for granted ... and the times that I didn't appreciate it all, even the times I resented not having "ME" time. Sigh.
"Remember When ... " by Alan Jackson haunts me more than I like to admit these days.
It's hard sometimes not to be filled with resentment and bitterness over the way our life has turned out.
0h, I know that we are blessed.
Blessed in ways that money cannot touch, let alone buy.
And I really do try to count those blessings. In fact, most days counting those blessings is what keeps me "sane"! My LIFE-line.
Rick had to have a couple things looked at (and hopefully fixed) on the truck yesterday. So, he was off.
Lunch with Bro. Jeremy - thank you for the smiles and the laughter! Thank you for showing me Jesus! :-)
A little time shopping - Christian Bookstore and then Wal-mart.
To the house ... cold watermelon on a hot day. :-)
Watched the movie, 2012, last night. Talk about special effects! OMW!!!
Only God knows ...
As a Christian, there is nothing to fear about the end of our world. But as a human - well ...
