I woke after a very restless night of waking up every hour … my son had to be up for 4:00 this morning to be ready to leave the house by 5 … so I was so worried he would sleep through the alarm that my my mind must of been having me react this way . When the hr I woke up and it was 4 I was on my phone texting him are you up ? when I did not get an answer back .I was nudging my husband to get up and check ..he looked at me half asleep not too happy with waking him and puzzled how I was awake . Oh if he only knew how my night was. Today was the day the Army National Guard Sargent picked him up for his physical exam the last thing to do to make it in was to pass that…and he made it in. So my day was spent keeping myself as busy as possible with cell phone and home phone in hands reach. Let’s say a lot of praying inside and outside as I dodged the sun not knowing if it wanted to come out blazing or hide behind the clouds . When it was tolerable it was spent out side with my book and phones in hand and I looking up to the sky and praying he would be okay and in good shape to join. When 3:00 in the afternoon arrived I prayed even harder that no news was good news. At 4 he arrived home and my son and the Sargent got out of the vehicle and greeted me. Anxiously I waited to hear the news. The Sargent said to me well we have good news and bad I’m like oh no …okay? He said good news he passed and has been sworn in . I just gasped with joy because I knew how much he wanted this ,my son has always wanted this and it’s a good start to a college and army career .. so I said what’s the bad news ? He said well it was a very long day for one .. just waiting around for everything to process and instead of the end of June shipping out for boot camp for 6 months it’s October then back for Christmas for two weeks and then gone till April . So weekend trainings two weekends a month through the summer to stay in shape . We could work with this. So my son is thinking summer classes until boot camp is over them start up in the fall for the rest of his college so it will be college and National Guards on weekends 8 yrs well 4 college 8 National Guards and who knows maybe full time serving after ..knowing my son I may not be surprised. I just know we are so proud of him. He wants to serve so much I thank God for getting him through this day .. I think I prayed all day to get myself through.
Now it’s night time and my son is settled in bed . I would think he would be tired after getting up early and all he had to do plus made it to a part of his track practice . HIs championship meets start tomorrow under the Lights so another long day with School and meets Well time to settle myself and pray one more time with a big thank you. 🙂 good night!
Today I brought my son tux back after renting for his prom ,really do not like to rent because no matter how hard I try something always comes up and I find myself in a jam returning it on time … believe me I had every ounce of good intentions of getting the tux back on time . The prom was this passed fFriday so the guy said Saturday return it but if something comes up I will let it go till Monday .I told him ok thank you but you will get it back Saturday . I know you know what I’m going to say ..yes something came up and here was Sunday mid afternoon and it dawned on me the tux.. oh no.. my son was off at a meeting and his mind has been all over the place senioritize…so I call the place we rented from and was very nice and explained and how I totally forgot it was Mothers Day weekend yes no excuse and I wasn’t trying to make excuses and too stated that the guy said Monday could work as well . The lady who answered the phone was so rude she raised her voice and said Saturday was the return day no buts about it and I’do not care what the sales guy told you your late she stated really loud in my ear I said ok I know …I will pay the late fees and it will be there Monday she said fine and slammed the phone in my ear .. oh my I wanted to cry . So today my daughter and I rushed over because my son was in school and it’s 45 mins away or more depending on traffic so I didn’t want him rushing after school and sports . My daughter carried it in for me and there was this older guy working and saw the tux and said oh returning I said apologetically yes and how I was so sorry and how I forgot about it being Mother’s Day and things came up and I understand if his worker yelled and slammed the phone down I would pay the fees , he said what?.. she did ? We don’t raise our voices and slam phones in customers ears here he took the tux hung it up took the slip that was in it did whatever they do with them and said I’m sorry for that ,Happy Mother’s Day . My daughter and I looked at one another .. I said oh my no I was late I need to pay he said no all set you have a great day no problem . He didn’t even check to make sure it was all together ( which it was ) but still . I couldn’t thank him enough . He just smiled and said enjoy the rest of your day. I was so amazed he was so kind and I know even more there are still some nice people in this world .. I know I was in the wrong there was 40 dollars Worth of late fees I would of paid and he could of made out with. That was a welcoming surprise ..,and on that note I think I should say my nightly prayers and get some sleep it’s getting late. Didn’t realize the time Goodnight everyone🙂
the fan is humming it’s the only sound breaking through the quietness in the house tonight my hubby and his fan… the bedroom is darker then usual no light from the moon ,clouds moving in to bring some rain. My daughter is out with a friend and my son is in bed settling his mind down with a hot cup of night time tea . Hubby is fast asleep and I am not 🙂 always… I was just reflecting on the little things I guess when my phone went off a minute ago because my daughter texted me a heart because earlier before she left work she told me she was going to be a bit later she sent me a heart so I sent one back but I guess she was just seeing it and even though she is out with her friend she sent me one back still ❤️ so it got me thinking of how her and I had this special goodnight saying she was the one who thought of it ,it was long and she would say it first then I would repeat it back with her name and it went on for yrs and I always wondered when she would grow out of it . Well it took a class trip in Elementary school that she went on for a week . She was worried she wouldn’t be able to say it so I told her when your all settled in and your ready to fall asleep if you think about it say it to your self your part and when I go to bed I will say my part ….. she. Liked that idea , honestly I do not know if she ever said it to herself that whole week . I never asked because when she came home she never ask to say it just said good night … hmm funny what you can remember and still can tug at your heart… my son was more simple it was ,have sweet dreams then a hug .. hmm how I miss all those moments ..at the time it was just second nature what we did . Now its missing memories .. oh the simple things we can take for granted but then when time passed it’s really becomes a big thing and means everything. So tonight when I say my prayers as I drift off to sleep tonight I will make sure to add a thank you to god for all these simple blessings I believe I have thanked him for all these blessing but I think I need to thank him again especially about the little things . ❤️
Today our friend came back , she was roaming around our woods and front yard during the fall time . My daughter and I where driving up our driveway yes up our driveway is like a small country road I will have to post a photo sometime. So as we are driving she pasts in front of us thankfully a good space away and went into the edge of our woods we stopped to get a picture .she was beautiful she just stood their wagging her little tail and happily staring at us there was no fear in her eyes I think he knew she was safe. I can’t tell you how long we sat there admiring her this beautiful animal God created and blessed us with her presence again it seems she made our home hers for the moment because as of this evening she is still roaming and eating on our land and staring as the kids coming and goings in there cars. This amazing beautiful doe. we are so happy to have her back she brings a good energy with her .I hope she stays around a bit longer .
This is so true, sometimes this is all you need. it’s been a rainy foggy Tuesday November day .It’s all good we need this rain so much and I am sure our well is happy as well…hahaha okay that was good wording 🙂 but very true. A strange day it’s been usually rainy days drag on this day flew by ,happy to say dinner is all set thanks to my daughter who needed it to be so she could eat before her late work shift. Now just waiting for my son to come home from Track practice and then the rest of us will eat …yes I’m sure for some this is all so boring what I write about but I did warn everyone my blog would be about my family life. yes…yawn.. sigh … sorry. I am so thankful for all you wonderful people who follow me I enjoy your blogs as well. Over and over I thought about should I do the November what I’m thankful for but there are days I am just not able to get on. I am thinking when December starts I may do a count my blessing moment when I am on or at least find two seconds at night to write it. so bare with me. 🙂 okay my son should be here soon and I am ready for an early dinner myself . Have a good night everyone.
It’s Friday night, whats that mean to you? well for me let’s see we are all home My daughter is down in her apartment my son in his room with his bedroom walls rocking from his music. and my husband and I are in our bedroom he is watching television while I am on my laptop. oh can’t forget my pup is at the foot of the bed sleeping, yes sound boring I am sure to some… to me it’s contentment I you told simple is what I like I will take any moment we are all home together and safe .At the beginning of the week when school started back a young married couple in their middle 20’s I would say a local couple two towns over from where we live was in a horrible car accident I can’t say if horrible even defines how bad.. they were headed I believe to work at 5 in the morning and some how hit a tractor trailer truck…nothing was left of their poor car .. I believe they died on site, sad thing is they left 3 children all under the age of five. the whole situation is devastating , for whatever reason this happened doesn’t matter it just shows how short life is and how fast it can be taken away . So hug your love ones tonight and if your spending a Friday night like I am be thankful you are able to.
