I hope your day is spent in beauty and love.
My wish is to always be the best Mother I can be to my son. The Sarah Connor Meme was what he posted on my FB wall for Mother’s Day. I guess that speaks for itself. LOL! Oh how I love that boy of mine. ❤
Friday evening was the Band Awards Night. My parents came and my son received his Junior year award, his Jazz, Percussion and Marching pins and was named Most Outstanding Musician for this past year. So proud of him and his accomplishments. Afterwards, I took him, my parents and one of his friends out for dinner at Ruby Tuesdays. Delicious food, great company and lots of laughs. Gave my mom her gifts for Mother’s Day and we all had a great time. So blessed to have these great times together.
I know I have a year until my son graduates and we’re making the most of our time together. The first two weeks after school gets out, we’re going to Virginia to spend time with friends. Not sure if the whole time will be there; but we shall see. Also have an open invite from my Uncle in NC to stop by, so I may spend a few days with them as well.
I am so looking forward to our trip. It’s about a 17 hour drive; but I know the two days it takes to get there will be tedious, however, well worth the hassle. Seeing a friend I haven’t seen in over 20 years. So blessed to be able to do so. He’s just had both knees replaced and I just can’t let any more time go between us. I have to see him. I can hardly wait to meet his wife. She’s sweet and kind and has tamed this man a lot from our youth. I adore them.
This year has gone by quickly; but the last week has seemed to crawl by slowly. I guess knowing that it is only a few weeks until I get to vacation must be what is making it seem this way. Of course, the time we’re away will fly by for sure. LOL!
Last week, my cousin laid to rest her boyfriend of 17 years. It was unexpected. He had a brain tumor that he didn’t know about, caused him to lapse into a coma and become brain dead within two days. Devastating her, his family and their friends. What is strange is that in September, shortly after my own loss, we had gotten together and had discussed what would happen to her if something happened to him. I had been explaining to her all the things I needed to go through with the power of attorney, lawyer, cremation, etc. She expressed her concerns about her situation with me and I listened and shared what I knew from my own personal experience. I hope it led to a talk with him about it. She hasn’t been up to talking to anyone, so I am not sure. I feel so bad about the situation. She loved him so much.
Actively working on my patience. On my second Max Lucado bible study book. Did a short one on patience that I’d gotten from another source. It was only on patience and about 60 pages, but very intense. I certainly needed that. Still waiting on God’s perfect timing. ❤
