It has been a wild couple of weeks in our family....
some great and some not really great at all.
The NOT Really Great -
It has struck a few of us that we as a family (living 1000s of miles apart) didn't have to deal with both of these major health scares at the same time by allowing me to be done first so now we can all put our focus, faith and prayers toward my dear brothers family. We are all acknowledging how blessed we all are by the Lord's timing and watchful eye .
The REALLY Great-
We just spent a great weekend with Random Wisdom and her fiancé who came up for an extended weekend. It is so great and comforting (for a mom) to see how much they love each other and especially for witnessing the way he treats and treasures her...I couldn't ask for anything more. The stress of a long-distance relationship and the immigration waiting game has not been easy or fun for them but the tender mercy for me "mom" is watching them resolve conflicts, short tempers, stress and frustrations and the messes they can cause on a relationship. They are truly a team and a united unit that face these challenges together with love and laughter. It makes my heart sing and the "mom worries" go away. I know they are blessed to have found each other but best of all is that they know it too.....
AIN'T LOVE GRAND!!!!
(trials and all)
