We have had 46 days to get to know each other. We have had a wonderful 46 days. Some days were hard. Some were full of silliness. Today....boy, I have all sorts of conflicting emotions going on inside of me. So many people have months and months at home with their kids. Some are always home. God knew way back in August of 2011 as I began this process and he started to weave together my family that I would have limited time away from work. He knew this when he was preparing the children that he would bless me with to parent. Rather than be sad today, I trust that the Lord has this all in His hands and He has plenty of work for me to do from 7-3 each day with my 5th grade students. My little boy is going to be more than ok! He gets to spend two days with Grandma and then beginning next week he will be in school from 7-3 where I am sure he will grow leaps and bounds more than he would with just me at home! He will be with 3 teachers and 10 other kiddos what we have both grown to love over our 3 weeks of visits.
I am sure there is more to learn about each other, but we know each other now. The smile he gives me now is not the smile he gave me 46 days ago. When we look into each other's eyes, there is love, security and a bond. I love him with all of my heart! He makes me so proud! Little things he does just make me thank God for blessing me with such a wonderful and special gift. He is such a bundle of personality and I cannot wait to continue watching him grow as we begin to spend our days apart.
Pray for me! Pray for him! Pray for Grandma over the next two days! Also pray for those 3 teachers and 10 others kids.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me! I pray that before Christmas I will have some more exciting news to share with you!!!! Have a blessed THANKSGIVING!!!!
