One fun thing about graduations has to be going through all the old pictures. This picture is of my twins Jimmy and John, (they were about 5 months old) with there grandfather about 4 months before he died. He sure loved our boys! It brought back so many happy memories when my Mother-in-law showed me this picture today.
Sorry for over reacting today, I have been so good all this time! My emotions just all of a sudden came on me as I was getting ready for Church on Sunday; it just got worse, until this morning I thought I was going to crumble. I was going through all the details of the party in my mind and all of a sudden it all hit me like a big brick falling on my head. The tears started falling and they wouldn't stop. Just this morning my A.J. over slept and I had to run him to school. I have to say it was the best feeling in the world. I was rushed and overwhelmed because I had my Mother-in-law and daughter-in-law over to plan the food and wrap silverware for the graduation party. I just couldn't even be upset because I know, one day soon, I will long to be able to run him to school or just give my boy a hug.
Before we go to bed at night our children come in and give us hugs and kisses. (The Waltons is what we sound like at night, "Good night JimBob", "Good night JohnBob" o.k. I'm being silly) Boaz likes to sneak in our bed once in a while still. (Our baby is way to old but he tries anyway) A.J. came in to give us hugs last night and said, "o.k. as a reward, it is my turn to sleep in your bed tonight". (all six foot 175 pounds of him, "I don't think so") (He thinks he is so funny) I will sure miss his funny personality. He is a good young man! I think he is going to do just fine. We raised him to love the Lord and follow his teachings so I have to trust in the Lord to watch over him. (How hard it is to let go)
