Wow, we had a whirlwind week beginning... On Sunday (which happened to be Mother's Day and Kendall's first birthday). We decided to pack up and go visit our kids. (perfect timing - right?)
After church in a snap decision and realization that we actually NEEDED to do this, we threw stuff in the car and took off with both cars so we could leave one there to make the move easier next week (YESSSSSSS NEXT WEEK!!!!)
We helped celebrate the birthday even though the party was the day before, we still got in on some good kisses ... then all the kids and grandkids came over for a visit and we played games and talked and ate pizza (some of us did) and I got to hold amazing Grace and talk to her and look into her big beautiful eyes.
Monday we got up and got dressed, went by "our" house to look at it from the outside again and then to Walmart and then to eat lunch at Olive Garden (yummmm)... came home and loaded up Andy and our stuff (I had forgotten some very important items like brush, curling iron, moisturizer - thank goodness for daughters!)
then we headed north to Kansas area to see our new appointment and meet with our new members. It will be a sweet place. God is good and is blessing.
Now I'm home and in a frantic time trowing stuff in boxes and cleaning out from under the refrigerator! The week promises much activity... We are blessed, God has been good to us here. It is a bittersweet time - saying "goodbye" is never fun or easy... saying "hello" is always exciting and being with grandchildren is wonderful...
so, until I "steal" a few more minutes on the computer, know I'll be thinking about what to say next and what YOU are saying...
