What a week! I was reminded that I am not in control of this life and that the Lord is in the driver seat. I can't give many details now, but I literally had something fall into my lap. I will be able to chat more about it in a few weeks. Just say a prayer that I make the right choice for my family.
On a side note, I have had some good conversations with AJ this week. His Marines continue to be out and about and he is able to chat with me before he goes to bed. We were talking yesterday how fast our 13 year old has grown up. I am taking him to a military kids camp today. I remember the day I was wishing he would just grow up a bit and get out of the toddler stage. Now.. I wish I could have stopped time. I never really understood what people ment about kids growing so fast. They really do. I felt bad because AJ told me that he really dreads not being around for much of his life. *Tear* I can't imagine how he can be away from us. I am hoping I hold it together when I pull away today.
The kids and I went out to dinner last night and to church. Our middle child, is literally "something else". I will call these the Bradyisms for the day. I told him we were going to church yesterday because I had to get out on the road to take Keegan today. He replied, "Will there be donuts there. If not I don't want to go.". Um.. then I had to explain to him that we don't go to church for the donuts. =) I guess the cookies that were there were a good substitute. The one thing I have enjoyed so much from this new church as that he is excited to tell me what he has done. He told me they played Bingo and talked about trusting in the Lord. He also told me he prayed for Dad. =) When we were out to dinner I let him tell the waitress what he wanted. He chose shell noodles, meat sauce, shrimp, and garlic potatoes. I did have to put my foot down on the garlic potatoes, as I wanted him to have some type of vegetable. It sure looked yummy all mixed together.
I will leave you with a song that touched me last night.
