Some Days are Really Hard!!!

Sunday afternoon, I spoke with John and Di. All is well with the little guy...he is due in three short weeks! Unfortunately, John's deployment date has been moved up.

While we chatted I could hear the anxiety in their voices. The doctor has assured them, the little guy will be delivered before John departs, so this is a really good thing. However, it was their hope to have a couple weeks together as a new family.

Some days are really hard to be a Mom. I tried to encourage them, by reminding them God has a plan and His plan is good. The little guy's birthday will be...when it will be.

John will fly through BWI...so there is a chance I can see him before he takes off. Oh dear God, I do pray this works out.

So often things are simply out of our control. Words are easy... actions are such a challenge some days.

I ask each of you to lift a prayer for this new family.

I pray Di knows an easy labor and delivery.
I pray my grandson is healthy and perfect.
I pray my son meets his son and has several days to bond with this gift from God.
I pray the days and weeks and months that John is deployed, everything goes well for Di and her new little boy.
I pray that I can offer the support Di needs, and that everyone prays for my son's protection.
I pray that Almighty God gives this Mom the strength needed to make it through another son's deployment.

Last year, while B was in Afghanistan...I listened to this song every single day.
I will be placing this CD back in my car...Six months is a long time.
