Going home

Time goes so fast when you're away from home doesn't it! I honestly cannot believe we are packing up and hitting the road to go home this morning.....

We have all had a good time here in Tennessee. The cabin was just wonderful and being with my family has been so much fun and the memories will be cherished forever....

As we started out yesterday morning I knew it would be the day that we would wander into the smokey mountains and scatter daddys ashes.....but those were my thoughts and as the Lord has shown me sooo many times in sooo many different ways this past year.....things don't always go the way I think they will.

We gathered around the table yesterday with our coffee and one another and started talking and sharing our hearts. I know the Lord directed our conversations and our hearts because so many things were shared, so many tears we shed and in the end laughter rang throughout as we talked about our Daddy knowing how things would have been so different had he been sitting here with us...but you know what....HE.WAS. After our talk we all realized we needed to honor his wishes and scatter his ashes in California and we will plan this trip this summer or early fall but after all was said, cried and laughed out I know that this is the right thing to do. I had a peace knowing we had made this decision and that the Lord directed us in ways we didn't even know or expect....Isn't it awesome how HE does that! I just LOVE HIM SOOO!

We will be heading home and going through Nashville so it may take til Friday before we get home but more fun awaits and my brother and nieces with be right behind us all the way!

I want to thank each one of you for your Love, your prayers and your Friendship ~ it just means sooo very much!
