First, my sister left this morning. Hopefully, we'll be able to go out to LosAngeles in 3 yrs for her first vows. Other than that, she won't be home for 4 yrs. All for the glory of God, right? Right. But it's still very hard to see her off. And it's harder for me to see my children sad.
Secondly, our first baby bird leaves the nest tomorrow! I still can't believe it! She's local, but she'll be living on campus. Still, she won't be here. It'll definitely be strange - but it's exciting as well to see your first going off into the world. Praying that she holds fast to all those things you tried to teach her since she was yay high. Praying that she'll keep her Faith close to her heart to guard it from life's evils. Praying she finds great friends who'll keep her grounded. Praying that she'll ask us for help when she needs it. And praying that she... prays. It's so easy not to. Believe me, I know.
I love you, Kayla. And I'm sad. But, it's a happy-sad kind of sad :) Strange, I know, but true.
You have a beautiful soul!
Thirdly, Kayla's Bearded Dragon, Cicero, left today. Kayla can't take him, and frankly I didn't want him in the house anymore - so after much asking from the homeschool group and no takers, he went to a pet store today.
That leaves us.
Fourthly, we're leaving Sunday for the beach! Yay! We won't have Kayla with us, which is quite sad - I know her cousins will miss her being there, as well as us. And Karen won't be there. But we'll just have to make the best of it ;)
Today was a fantastic birthday for me! My children are just the best & my dh is awesome too. I'll have to post pictures of my treasures tomorrow.
I pray you have a great week everyone!
WHY OH WHY do i have such troubles with the spacing on part of my posts at times? As much as I go back to "edit" the spacing of these last few paragraphs, it doesn't take! Anyone else have these probs?
