Thoughtful Thursday

Hi ya'll. Thought before the weekend rolls around again, I better tell you what I've been up to this week.

This weekend I have been spent trying to keep up with everything at the house so that Michael and I can go away this weekend for a little getaway without having any cares while I am gone. Woo Hoo! Today is Tori's last day at her 'salon' job so she will be coming/moving back home. It will be wonderful to have her back at home. I have really missed her while she was at her dad's. Granted I know she misses her dad, and spending time over at his house is nice but she doesn't see him as much as she would like because of his work schedule. Guess she probably sees him more when he comes to visit with her at our house or they meet for dinner someplace . That way she has his undivided attention. Since Michael and I are going away though, she will go back to her dads for the weekend. At least he should be home and so she will be able to spend some time with him.

Michael and I have been so busy with our work schedules and everything else this summer we didn't even take a vacation. Mainly because we have made trips to Texas to visit with his mom and felt that was more important. Speaking of Texas we are planning to head back out there again over Labor Day. His mom has been having some more issues so please continue to pray for her. We feel truly blessed that she has done as well as she has, but she has been battling and fighting so much lately with fevers, sickness, and complications on top of the new chemo that they have put her on.

Last week, we took Tori to get her Senior pictures made, and we got to view the proofs on Tuesday night. It's hard for me to believe how grown up she looks and is. In a couple of weeks she will be 17 years old. I married her father at 17. I remember feeling quite mature for 17, and thought I was ready for marriage. But I can not imagine Tori wanting to get married at 17. Now I know what my poor parents must have gone through when I mentioned marrying at such a young age. Isn't it amazing how it takes having children of our own to realize what we put our parents through. Most people would say it was a mistake that we married so young but I have never felt that. Even though the marriage ended in divorce, it was a good marriage and still to this day I feel that it was right. I don't think age had anything to do with the divorce.

Really need to close and scoot. Hope you have a blessed rest of the week.

Hi Cindy! Hope you have a wonderful getaway, & relax 'lots'!

I got married a month after my 17th birthday...I was a baby!! I didn't think so then, but I was. And I thought I was a woman! :-) You are right, we don't realize until we are grown & have kids of our own. I know my Mom cried her heart out over losing her 'baby'. Have a wonderful weekend Cindy! Hugs!

Hi girlfriend! I have been blog missing lately and now it is almost time to go back to school! We should have Brian's senior pics anyday. We choose the ones we wanted back in July. He went and signed the paperwork to go in the Marines on Friday. He will be leaving on June 15th next year. What happened to my baby! Hope you and Michael had a wonderful little vacation. Hugs

Hi Cindy,
I hope you had a great weekend. You would have been up and going now for about three hours from the time I am writing this. I think of that as an advantage. So many have already visited the blogsites and commented.
Doesn't time go fast? I wish it wouldn't. I would like to slow it down. I do believe there is a way to do it.
Kari my daughter has been out of high school for almost 10 years now. That time went by so fast. Now there are two little boys that I can't imagine not ever being in my life before. I guess that is why I want to slow things down, so I can enjoy them to the fullest. Even more than I do now. HUGS
