My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Dad's On Retreat!!

So we woke up EARLY this morning and drove to the church in our jammies to drop Daddy/Subvet off at just before 7AM for his Christ Renews His Parish Retreat. We'll be picking him back up tomorrow afternoon about 4PM.

Till then, what's a Mom and 3 hooligans to do to pass the time??

Well, since the sun was just starting to rise we started OUR retreat time by driving through Chik-fil-A for coffee!! and breakfast in the car to watch the dawn. We talked about how the sun always rises in the East and sets in the West. We watched as the sun turned us all red. We got excited as the parking lot lights turned off one by one with the increasing light. We watched 3 large flocks of blackbirds converge in the empty lot and search for their breakfasts.



The moment that made it all worthwhile....

*no camera with me, all pics from phone, sorry for the poor quality*

Then we started home.

We marveled at the mist in the lowlands.
Passing the big cemetery on our way Gator asked to go see the statue. So, of course, with no time table but our own whims and fancies we turned in for a closer view.

The start of another day!

Wish us luck. My plan is to get Gator OUT of daytime pullups this weekend!! And I have an outing or two planned just to pass the time..... ;-)

So, in addition to the private duty job that's waiting in the wings for a start date, I interviewed yesterday for a NICU internship. Since they're both night positions 3 times a week these are not mutually exclusive and should by some crazy huge blessing I get to do them both I will be one extremely happy woman! I've been trying to get into this internship for 2 years without ever getting called so here's hoping! I should know about the internship by Halloween, the private duty is a done deal, once Shelley's able to hire me. I know she's ready, God Bless her!!

So keep those prayers coming! Amazing things are happening!

I'm sitting at the end of the dark tunnel,
blinded by the light.
I can't see what's ahead
I don't know which way to turn.
I'm just sitting here,
waiting to feel Jesus' guiding hand,
Grateful for the light ahead.
