It’s after midnight on a Thursday night well now Friday .. just finish reading …well could of read a bit more but I’m thinking time to get some sleep. I just wanted to post the photo I had taken with the sun setting over the mountain from our deck . It was absolutely beautiful and up lifting. I hope all of you enjoy it.
I’ve realized I skipped a day of posting . Yesterday was a amazing happy day. Well all days are pretty good but this one was exceptionally happy. Finally heard from our Son since arriving in Missouri on base last week . He called to let me know his address and was finally heading to the Basic Training unit… yes took a bit I guess quite a process. He said he sent me several letters in the mail and if I received them ? As of yesterday I hadn’t but at least I heard his voice he sounded good but was persistent on my checking the mail .We got off the phone adding he wouldn’t be able to call for two weeks but send him letters .
Today I woke drank my cup of coffee did a bit of things around the house but was anxious to get to the post office to check for mail. The results were 4 letters all from my Son .. the thoughts, questions went through my mind as I drove home wondering why so many and what I would find in them . I arrived home settled in cozied up in my chair and started reading he went by 1st letter then 2nd letter so on.. I read and my heart felt every word I won’t say what he wrote .. somethings are personal . Let’s say a lot of adapting .. adjusting going on for him but as I got to the last letter #4 he was doing better. Things looked brighter . Then my wandering mind thought what would I right ? I know be uplifting encouraging words . But what for excitement he knows it’s not that exciting . But then again he was missing home .. so home it was ..now I can’t remember the last time I actually wrote a handwritten letter but once I got going the words flowed as did my fingers and within seconds I had filled a page . Writing felt so good . So refreshing then typing on a keyboard or tapping on a phone. Words just filled the page. There was seriousness and humor . It was just unbelievable I ended up with a two page letter for him was it exciting .? Couldn’t say but honest and straight from the heart it was . I folded it up and placed it in an envelope and drove back to the post office with in 15mins of it closing to get a stamp for it and mail it . I wanted him to have a letter on its to him to look forward to.
I’m thinking it has me wanting to start a journal again like back in the day when I had so many journals filled with thoughts ..dreams life . For now though I ll just keep the letter flowing he wants them needs them . I am so proud of him . And proud of myself for not over thinking and just letting go and just did what I needed he needed . Now I’m going to get off read my book and then say my prayers before bed . Good night everyone.
I woke late which has not happen for a bit but then again I didn’t fall asleep until well after 1:30 in the morning that has not happen in a bit as well. I dragged myself out of bed ran a brush through my hair since showering the night before and then headed straight for the coffee . Which on this very cold morning tasted so good. After chatting with both of my kids changed for the the day and hubby and I tackled food shopping grabbed the house groceries then the things we needed for my sons family going away gathering.after going home and putting groceries away . We were off for mum shopping and that consist of backroad driving . Nothing like a ride in the country on beautiful quiet back roads with the leaves changing . Yes there as been better foliage years but here and there we were able to find some pretty sites. Arriving at the place we love to buy our Fall mums at was booming with people . Their mums are gorgeous and a good price. We purchased 6 big ones nice and full and their color is so vibrate their beautiful. Next weekend maybe some pumpkins, right now their a bit pricey. As we arrived home and was parking the truck their in our yard looking straight at us was the cutest baby fox we stayed in the truck for a moment to reassure it that it was fine. That it wouldn’t be harmed. After a moment it headed back into the woods. As I write this the boys (coyotes) are around we could hear them yipping and the crunching of the leaves outside our bedroom window so yes very close. Now that’s not good. This is when I wish so much we still had our pups to scare them away . He did such a great job making them know they needed to leave. It’s been a nice relaxing fun busy day . …and very active night with our wildlife . I guess now it’s time to call it a night and get some sleep going to be busy and emotionally exhausting next three days tomorrow family over for food and see you later not goodbye and then tying up the last few details and packing things and getting him to where he will leave from for Basic Training in Missouri . So Night everyone. I’ll keep you posted.
When your sitting outside on your front deck over looking the yard and your enjoying a book in the warmth of the sunlight and you see and hear these guys coming for a visit .. they stop for a moment when they have spotted me looking at them but know their not going to be bothered so they enjoy my front yard and I just enjoy the beautiful sight of the wildlife that is a benefit of living in the country.
The rain has subside . Beautiful sunset now tonight! .7:30 now and its about dark already… happy I caught it when I did. 🙂
