Back in Florida

Wow! How can a week go by so quickly??? It seems like just yesterday I was getting in the car heading home with my kids!
The week flew by and I cherished each day as a family, was able to spend some time with my step-daughter and grandaughter :)
She is crawling everywhere, saying dada and mama too now and has the cutest silliest little grin you have ever seen....well I know I am biased but hey! :) My mom came over and spent the night because my husband had to go out of town so thought it would be a perfect way to spend some extra time with my mom. I was able to do her hair and we didn't go anywhere just enjoyed the day with one another and the kids! Saturday my honey took me on a date early and then we had some friends come over and had a GOOD PRAYER TIME and caught up with one another! On Sunday we had all of the family over, except my brother because he went to St Louis to enjoy a baseball game. We cooked out and it was a beautiful day and the Lord blessed our time so very much.

I returned to Florida today and was so happy to see my dad. He looks so darn cute with his hair gone and honestly looked so much better than I had expected. Each time I had talked to him last week he sounded awful and I was really scared. So seeing him as I got off the plane tonight was such a relief! I have to say the enemy was at work today ATTEMPTING to attack me with fear and anxiety to an extreme. I don't travel well alone anyway, but let's just say when I went to order a hamburger before I got on my connecting flight in Dallas and came out only to find they had moved my gate and I had 10 min. to get there and dropped my lunch and made a huge mess of ketchup, mustard, pickles etc all over I wanted to cry! Well, the enemy didn't win, never does and seriously the Lord just washed over me, then and there, I just laughed it off, picked it up, and moved on. Got to my connecting gate just in time to board and as I was walking to my seat I felt the Lord with me in a way that was so powerful. I can't even describe ~ it was just that Peace that passes ALL understanding and HE was with me. That is how He has been through this whole ordeal and I am humbled to the core!

I have to share we were driving to the airport my son says to me "MOM, when you skype (where you can talk to each other via the computer, seeing each other too) me one night I am going to turn the computer to the tv and put my arm around the computer (which will have my picture in it) and we will watch a movie together ok ??? Is that not precious??? He is soooo sweet! I am blessed beyond measure!
