Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

They're Off!!

My husband and three oldest children left today for Hastings, Nebraska. Grandpa went home to be with the Lord on Monday and we decided that only Daddy and the big girls would go to the funeral. We were all out there in June for Grandma's funeral and we just took Levi to see Great Grandpa last week. I find it is not very easy traveling with a six week old so we figured this would be best for our family. It feels a little weird because we don't normally do this. Either we all go somewhere or Daddy just goes by himself. I really don't know what I am going to do these next few days but I hope I will be able to have some quality time with the little ones. The funny thing is that the three youngest girls are inseparable and pretty much entertain themselves so I am thinking it is going to be a time of relaxation. I will let you all know what we do for these next couple of days.

Know that I am praying for your family and for safe travels for Mark and the girls.

I need your email...shoot me an email so I'll have it. I'll send the picture you want.

LOL! Why is it that we moms feel so out of our element when moments arise that would, for others, provide a little respite? I too feel the "what will I do with my time?" dilemma when I have those rare moments away from my bunch.

p.s. I know this isn't a normal time of relaxation, with dh and the girls traveling for a funeral. Praying for their safety and for their hearts too.

Sorry and happy to hear about grandpa! Hopefully you know what I mean by that.

Praying for Mark, girls, and family!

Love you

Relax, take a long bubble-bath, and just enjoy some quiet "mommy time".
