Okay, so yesterday’s post was long. I had to compose my thoughts. And I did. It did help, and God was so sweet to me yesterday. The main point was the emotions of a day can take you in every direction…sometimes all at once.
My mom is leaving for Iraq, most likely, Oct. 22 Update: Monday, Oct 20th. She got the call yesterday. The kids are doing as well as can be expected with it. Red probably summed it up best in words. He kicked a rock and said, “THAT’S STINKY! IT STINKS!” And then, he decided that wasn’t quite enough and said, “It’s poopy.” And that wasn’t enough. He said, “That’s WORSE than poopy. It’s worse than poopy.”
Goldy and he are probably saddest that she will miss their birthday parties…she’s been at every one since they were born, and Goldy is sad she might miss her on an academic team meet, if she qualifies. I don’t know if there’s a meet before then or not.
