2 down....3 to go.....

pictures from last week......
when it was more like summer.....
we were at grandma's and she showed us a baby bluebird nest that had 4 eggs in it.

And yesterday we got to see that they had hatched.....we think on Sunday....Donovan's birthday.

What sweet days....warmer weather....barefoot....smiling children.....husband that came home after work.....kissing after the kids go to bed.....

Today, not as easy. It hit me hard at 3:30 that Donovan will not be home for 3 more days. I miss him so much. It just seems like so long to wait to hold him again. The work load is heavy when your by yourself. I'm thankful for my oldest 2 that have really helped while dad is gone. But it's just not the same.

On a more positive note....Donovan's parents were here tonight to help out. What a blessing to see them come in my door. Donovan's dad mowed the yard for me, while his mama took the kids outside and watched them while she also swept off walks and cleaned up around outside. I made dinner for us all, and it was just so nice to have some solitude for a short time inside getting dinner ready. Before I knew it, it was too quiet, and with too much quiet I had too much time to think. I was so sad and lonely for things to get back to how they usually are. Ready to have the husband home. While so grateful to have Donovan's parents here, I was so lonely for my best friend. So I finished up dinner and headed outside. Donovan's mama and I got busy on a project I had been putting off....of re-potting some plants. It was good to get it done and good to have help. Good to get my mind busy.

We came inside for dinner and then mama helped clean up the kitchen. Baths, bed, packing lunches, laying out clothes, and here I am ready to fall into bed.

Thanks to mama and papa G. for all your help tonight. You were a mood boost!!

And one more thing before I sign out.....

the quote of the day.....

by William, "why is your tongue wet mom?"

my reply: "because God made our tongues that way"

William, "I want my tongue to be dry, I don't like it wet"

Keep on counting down, Heather...soon it will be 5 down 0 to go and you will have a sweet reunion with your man.

I understand how you are feeling so much and am praying for you this week.

What a blessing to have such wonderful in-laws to come and help you last night!
