Do you see the bright side of Things?

I can't leave my blog on such a sad note, it is just not my personality. I had a wonderful visit with my boy; I can't wait until I see him again. Maybe, I'll be able to visit Virgina. Won't that be fun!


I talked to Aaron last night and he said things were going to be o.k.., I am so grateful that he is willing to serve our Country.

I always try (I sometimes fail) to look on the bright side of things that happen in my life. My husband asked me if I was always going to cry when our children visit and when they leave to go back home. I told him, I am sure I will always cry! I don't think that it is a bad thing. God gave us our tears and emotions for a reason. I just seem to always have a reason to either laugh or cry. I asked my boy's if they were going to cry when Aaron left this time. Jimmy looked at me and said he was just hard to him leaving. I understood what Jimmy meant. It isn't that he won't miss him, he is just use to him not living at home anymore. I don't ever want to get to the point were I am hard to them leaving. If I cry it is just because I will miss them so much. I don't stay down for long, just a few days. I am now looking forward to all the fun stories he is going to be able to share with me.

My weekend was busy but good! Bo had a soccer game yesterday; his team won! They are 2-0 right now. There was a big Word of life conference at our church yesterday so I couldn't clean the church until they left. I got home around 10:00 p.m. This a.m. my papers were really late, so late that I couldn't even make it to church. There is a bright side! It was suppose to rain last night and it didn't. When it rains I have to bag all papers plus I get soaked. Sunday papers are pretty big, it takes a lot of energy without having to bag them.

This afternoon I went to my oldest Grandson's soccer game (His team won) I then went over to his house for a Birthday party for him. I can't believe Josh is 10 already. I had a wonderful time!

I am now going to get an early start on my Monday cleaning. On Monday's I try to go through my house and clean really well. That means dusting, vacuuming, mopping, scrubbing everything I can get my hands on. This way the rest of the week I just have to pick up and do laundry. I like to always have my house ready for guests to drop in.

On the brighter side! (Just kidding)

I am now going to sign off and get to cleaning!

BTW-My kids all made the schools Honor roll! woohoo!

Oh! You make me want to get my house all nice and clean! It's so hard to do when I'm working a full time job.
But, I completely understand about the crying when your kids leave to go back home. I do it too when my Aaron leaves. I thought I'd be over it by now, but I'm not. I hate for him to see me, because he just thinks it's funny.

Kathy,

I think my Aaron wants to know I'll miss him. I think he looks for me to cry. I haven't disappointed him yet! LOL!

Love,

Lori

Congrats on the honor roll. And it is ok for a mother to cry. Mine never did. I think she was glad to get us kids out of the house, lol

Lori said...

Thank you Greg! The kids have worked very hard.

I pray I never get to the point were I want them out of the house. I'm glad you can laugh about it.

Oh, Waaaaaaa! I'm still sad for you. :~D But I know those feelings do pass quickly.

Lori said...

Oh Emom,

That is just how I feel! Waaaaaa! LOL

Praise the Lord they pass quickly or my family might just disown me.

Hugs,

Lori

I like the idea of cleaning the whole house in one day. Unfortunately, my house is too darned big for me to do that successfully and consistantly. "On the bright side", I have lots of room for guests and I have a husband and girlies who help me keep up.
