Monday Morning Musings: Where is Suz?
I survived the 2014 April Blogging Challenge, then promptly turned invisible. I've posted at most three times so far in May. I got way behind in responding to comments, too. I want to apologize to all of you for being so absent.
The month of May has just been a blur for me. There are things going on that I can't discuss in a public forum, though I really want to and then there are things happening that are ripping my mama-heart to shreds. Our youngest son is leaving on June 1 for the Marines and I cannot fathom him being gone. I can't think; I can't focus. I feel such a huge sense of loss and I can't stand it. If I understood correctly, we won't be able to hear from him during boot camp and that is thirteen weeks long for the Marines. If I'm counting right, that will be sometime in September. Although all babies are miracles, he's my miracle given to me at a very hard time in my life. I had just lost his sister to stillbirth and Heavenly Father gave him to me. Now, twenty years later, I have to let him go. I'll end up in an asylum after this...
On a happier note, our oldest daughter graduated with an Associate degree on Friday. So many things are changing around here! My daddy wanted at least one of his children to graduate college as he'd never even graduated high school. Here she is with her daddy.
Well, Daddy...none of your kids have graduated college (yet!) that I know of, but your granddaughter has done it. :)
There were other invigorating moments at our house last week.
On Monday, we had a snake in our kitchen.
On Tuesday, we got our Zoomie stuck in the mud in the front yard. The car was in the mud up to its axels. Little as the car is, it took four of us to unstick it. This isn't an adventure that I'd like to repeat again any time soon! I would rather deal with a snake!
What adventures have you all been having? Please share. I would love to hear about them!
