Family for the Holiday's

Do you know what I have seen through the acts of both of my children! Love is a sacrifice, a choice someone makes for another. I never asked my daughter or my son to come see me for the holiday's. I told them if they couldn't it would be o.k. I knew that both of them wanted to be home more then anything else in the world. I talked to both Aaron and Rebecca yesterday. they both said the same thing to me. They couldn't wait to "COME HOME". This might not be their home any more, but in there hearts this is home and always will be. My children know how much I love them and how much I am willing to and have sacrificed for them over the years. Even though some might see me in a different light! I try to always sacrifce for the people that I love. My children are really showing me how much love was in our house, just by the fact that they can't wait to come home for Christmas.

God shows us this example so clear in the scriptures.

God is love!

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son as the atoning sacrifice for our sins.

I am going to be swamped for the rest of the weekend. To many things on my plate to write them all down. I'll write all about it next week

I pray you'll have a great weekend!

Hugs to all of you!

These are the people my daughter works with. (Pretty scary) They were the Willy Wonka Choc. Factory for Halloween. My daughter is the 4th one in from the right.
This is what Becca wrote in the subjest field "My Ugly Helpdesk Photo..." I think it is a nice picture.

My daughter Becca is working as a help desk Operator right now. This is a picture the company took of her. She will work this job and cut hair part-time, after she receives her Texas Beauty licence.

I found out that Becca will be coming home for the holiday's. It won't be on Christmas but she will be here for New Year's Eve. Aaron and Becca will be able to spend a few days together before they return (One to Texas one to Chicago) January 3rd, to their own homes. I don't believe, that I will see Aaron for at least a year after he goes back. After his A school is finished he will be on a ship for 6 to 9 months. That is the reason Becca really wanted to try to get to Michigan for the holiday's if she could.

I feel almost like singing! Well, my children would tell you that I sing, way to much, as it was. When I dropped John and Jimmy off at school this morning they asked me to please keep it down until I pulled out of the parking lot. Hee, Hee

So I thought I'd call my daughter and sing "It's beginning to look a lot likes Christmas" when she got to work this morning. I thought I'd try to start her day off laughing, and it worked! Yeaaaaa!!

I can't believe that both of my children are coming home for the Holiday's. God has been so very good to this old mom.
