Wordless Wednesday!!!!!!!! A Proud Momma & Daddy!!

One day a few weeks ago Grayson asked me if I could take him to the Larry Boy Store {Family Christian Store} to buy him a cd for him to sing at church,

I of course was really excited to go take him to find something, because I grew up singing in a family group and had traveled all over the US singing from the time I was 9 years old until just a few short years ago, and had always hoped and Prayed that My children would love singing as much as I always have and would want to share it with others, So i was ready to go, When we got to FCS, I asked Grayson if he knew what song he wanted to sing and he said "well it's a slow song" {so that narrowed it down!} lol!

So we started talking about the words of the song and he could only remember a few words of the song so i was wracking my brain to figure out what song it was and Low and Behold the song came on the radio in FCS and he pointed up at the speaker and said "That's it" So we found his CD. We had practiced the song on the way home that night and the next day we had music time and i decided to sit and explain the meaning of the song to Grayson & Brayden, I wanted them to understand the meaning behind the song not just sing it because they liked the way it sounded, so we started talking about the song and they both had alot of questions about different parts of it but I could tell that Grayson really understood what the song was about, so later that evening before bed Grayson came to tell me goodnight and he said " Momma I want Jesus in My Heart"

I am blessed to say that Isaac & I were able to lead Grayson to the Lord!

On October 30th 2009, My Big Boy asked Jesus to come into his Heart!!!!!!!!

He is so excited and has wanted to tell everyone he meets that he has Jesus living in his heart!

HOME!!!!

Yesterday {Tuesday} morning
My Mom was released from UMMC in Jackson
and around 4pm yesterday we were so relieved to see that white car sitting in there driveway.
Mom has not been feeling to well since she left the hospital
but she has had a long 2 days with just the 3 hour drive from Jackson to the house when she has not been out of the hospital bed basically for the past 21 days.
We are so glad that they are home and pray that Mom will be able to drink plenty of fluids and at some point in the next few days be able to start eating a little something.
She was very glad to be at home in her own bed last night
and was thankfully able to get a pretty good nights sleep last night.
My Dad called me yesterday once they had gotten on the road,
so I hollered to the boys that Shashi & Poppy's were coming home from the hospital
and it was so funny because i heard both Grayson & Brayden shout YES!!!!!!!!!!
and then yesterday when we pulled up over
at Mom & Dad's, Easton said Yah!!!!!!!!!! and started clapping and laughing.
Thank You all for your Prayers and words of encouragement! You will never know how much you have meant to Me and My Family!

Tired!

That is all I can say right now is I am TIRED! worn out, stressed, in need of a vacation, a mommy's day out, TIRED!!!

It seems like all i have done for almost an entire year is take care of everyone else and i am just worn out. Don't get me wrong, I have loved being able to spend this time helping my parents, but trying to juggle everything like taking care of My Hubby, My Kids, My Parents, taking care of the house, cooking for us and my parents, homeschooling and now running back and forth to Jackson every weekend, leaving on Wednesday or Thursday nights and coming home on Sunday or Monday nights, while in Jackson taking turns with my sisters staying at the hospital with My Mom, coming back to the hotel with no sleep from staying at the hospital and taking care of My kids. I am exhausted!!! The last year and a half of my life has seemed like nothing but hills that i have to pull myself over, Easton being born premature and him being so very sick and not knowing if i was going to get to bring him home, sitting inside with him for 4 months, never leaving my house but to take him to the doctor, wondering every night when i put him to bed if he was going to stop breathing during the night and his machine was going to fail, and just when life starts to get back to normal My Mom getting sick and being so scared that something was going to happen to her, and then running around trying to do everything by myself because it just wasn't convenient for anyone else and i didn't want to waste any time that I could have with My Mom, now i am running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to keep up with everything that needs to be done but yet not being able to concentrate on anything because i am so stressed out and exhausted. I have spent alot of my life caring about other people, making phone calls"just to let you know that i am praying for you" and "that i am here if you need me" and trying to do for others what i would want them to do for me in my time of need. Well, I am TIRED!!!!!! Let's just say that over the last year and a half I have found out who my true friends are and that they are few and far between.

I just needed to get some things off of my chest because if i don't i will probably blowup.

Sorry for the rant. I know that i have alot to be thankful for, Thankful that i DID get to bring My Beautiful Baby Boy home and that staying in for 4 months kept him well and healthy, thankful that My Mom is doing good although she is going through alot of crap right now, Thankful for the few people that have been there through most of this time in my life when i feel like i am barely keeping my head above water, Thankful for my hubby that i can vent too when i need someone to talk too, Thankful for my 3 beautiful happy little boys that can make me smile even when i feel lke crap. But most of all Thankful for My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that can get me through the rough times in My life and promises me that he is GREATER than all of my little ole' problems, and that he will bring me through.
