Friday was a hard day, so I was glad the weekend was uneventful. It's those older kids this time. Worrying this momma's heart, which doesn't know quite how to stop worrying about them even once they are "legally grown."
They seem so- well, immature still.
The son. WOW. I can't begin to tell you the fear this "boy" has given me over a number of years. Wondering if he will make it through some of the things he has pulled. Children are such a blessing but they also come with very different personalities and free will. (
This son was a gentle little boy, with doe eyes and a sensitive heart. It's a heartache to see him struggle so. As I totally believe 100% in the power of prayer, that God can and will get these 2 on their feet and on the right paths for each of them, please send a prayer up for them, will ya?
Miss Kitty went off to school this morning, as grouchy as could be. I never know what I'm going to get out of her, some mornings it's kisses and love, but more often it's dirty looks and tears. Girlfriend is SOOO not a morning person. I've tried earlier bed times, waking her up earlier, later, nothing seems to make a difference.
She must think I like the surprise each day of not knowing what I'm going to get out of her? She'd be wrong about that. (Mom do not say she is just like me and I deserve this)
Chance spent a better part of Sunday pouting, he was mad that he got in trouble for crawling under a pew in church and then had to sit next to dad. He is also not happy that he has lost microwaving rights, he was warned about messes left by him in the microwave and must have thought I was joking? Nope. Not at all. Hope he enjoyed those spilled over noodles and hot cocoa while he got them, 'cause he's banned now for a week.
It's not like he is the only one who got in trouble this weekend, Miss Kitty tried calling Camden and Chloe, who were spending time frying their brains on DS games- actually playing together quite nicely, "idiots." Not sure where she got that word, (no mom I do not call anyone an idiot, not even hubby) but it's certain to get Kat sent to her room. And she knows it but does it anyway?
Even the doggie is a goofball here, Teddy took the pad out of the kennel, drug it over to the patio door, put it on TOP of Tommy, who still has stitches in his neck, and laid down. Not sure why the kennel didn't suit him, maybe wanted to sun himself?
Today Mal and I are off to help make peanut clusters, one of the last fundraisers for Chloe's Costa Rica trip. Chloe will join us after school to help. Since I firmly believe chocolate can fix pretty much any ailment, problem, issue, I will TRY hard to not eat the profits, but it's gonna be tough. Ha ha.
I feel the need to ask, do any of you need prayer? Is there something you are struggling with? I feel as though God is telling me someone out there needs some prayers. Can I spent some of my time, helping you in prayer for your issue? Whatever it may be? If so leave me a comment, nothing is too small or too big for our God so don't be shy.
I would love to spend some time with God for you:)
