A Roller Coaster Day!
Friday, June 19, 2009
Today is one of those roller coaster of emotion days. You know the kind, when you start out on top of the world.. have a great beginning in prayer and lifting up other people in prayer... then later you find out YOU need lifting up as well! Well....it was going great, until I started thinking about my older son moving away to California, now being in Texas, California is like another whole world away when you don't travel! So....he popped online and we played some Scrabble together, and that was great, and then I realized he was moving like next week....so I got all discouraged. Later my family met him at the Outback Steakhouse, and had a wonderful dinner. Then we went to his house and he was sending different things home with each of us, things he couldn't or didn't want to take to California. So that was cool. Till I started thinking about what it meant... him being gone, and I started crying again. Then he hits me with "Oh, there is one more thing I have for you!" I'm like thinking a computer game or something, oh no..... "I accidentally got online and Southwest was having a sale...so I accidentally got you a ticket to fly out to California in August!" Well that was it, I started crying and couldn't Stop! After that we left and I cried all the way home. Dunno how I'm going to handle myself next Thursday, but somehow with God's help, I'm taking he and his wife and 2 cats to the airport! So... You people better start praying for me now! :) I'm sure that will be another roller coaster!
