Answered Prayers, Friends, and Laughter

The wait is over for almost everything I was "waiting" for a few days ago. Sal made it safely home from Austin, the Lord said that the job He has for me is right where I am so live with it and get happy. I'm living with it and will find happiness before school starts in the Fall. Praise God my Dad's test results have revealed that he is fine and well. AND....summer will officially begin at my house in FIVE DAYS.

We already have so many things planned. Our first task (interject Sal - "We're calling this task PREPERATION H - We're preparing the house for summer) is to have a very late Spring Cleaning event the week after next. Memorial Day could be just that - some things will only be a memory!

We had our last soccer game today and ended with a perfect season. Well...a perfect losing season but Clarissa doesn't care. However, if she would have played as hard the rest of the season as she did today it might not have been a perfect losing season! She has also had her gymnastics exhibition today and was absolutelyn adorable! We have Jonathon's in just a little while.

I had a thought today as I was leaving a message for my dear friend. Life is funny. There is a couple that Sal and I have been friends with for many years. Our children are like brothers/sister. In fact, she was Jonathon's first caregiver. We had attended the same church and usually sat by each other in church up until January of this year when the Lord called us away from Alliance. How funny it is that we have seen this family more since we've been gone than when we saw them weekly at church. Life is funny but I sure have enjoyed the laughs and good times we have together. thought for today is this.....Keep praying, laughing, and spending time with friends. It makes life and those nasty "waiting" games so much more bearable!

Yeah, I got that message...Remember "they" have your number too missy!

And I want you to know that we have so enjoyed every moment with your family these past few months. For us it was a matter of realizing what we were taking for granted. To allow us continued time in your lives, is proof that God blesses His children beyond measure.

And I am REALLY glad (so are my children) that we had time together Friday night. And if you get your place done before I do, and you still have the itch...feel free to come on over and spend some of that time with ME! ;-)
