|Little, Older, Older, Little|
We had a fun New Year's Eve weekend with our friends here at the house playing games and eating appetizers with all four of us staying awake almost until midnight. Mr. S. is back at work again in the City and we hope to see his face once more before he has to return for the second half of his yearlong deployment. God knew my good friend would need the distraction of being here right now but the reality of the long road ahead for her and their two young children is heart aching for me to watch. We were thrilled that he was able to be home for his R&R at Christmas. The two bonus weeks he had tacked on to be in our area for his boss's time at home was a huge gift. J and the kids will be hanging with us for the next couple of weeks until M flies out. Please pray for their Little and Older as well as their brave Momma in the new year. Hurry home, M!
On a positive note, our time together as families has been precious and God has shown more than one answer to prayer this past week. He is working.
Needless to say I have wanted to write and am now only getting the chance (My Love has been home and off of work since Christmas) because I fell asleep shortly after the kids went to bed and am now wide awake. Perhaps this is my opportunity to post something. I have much to share. Stay tuned...
