Holding On

How was your Memorial Day weekend? I spent the most of mine preparing for this week....this last week, these last few days - before my baby girl gets married. To say I am overly emotional would be a bit of an understatement - and I'm really not getting all my thoughts and words together, so my posts could be "different"...but I'll sort through it all and look for God's hand in each day (each moment) - and I'm going to do my best to enjoy...and savor...every part!

When times get stressful - read that emotional - for me, I often make the mistake of wanting to hurry through them....but I don't want to miss anything. Reminds me of this song that I have used to give advice to others...but, I guess, now its for me.

You're Gonna Miss This
Trace Adkins
You're going to miss this
You're going to want this back
You're going to wish these days
Hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're going to miss this
Oh....no kidding!! I already do........

  4. Don't make me cry, girl.. oh snap. Too late. Sending hugs and warm thoughts your way, knowing that it's possible to be extremely happy AND extremely sad at the same time. Sort of like kettle corn, with sweet and salty mixed in... do your very best to enjoy the "flavors" of the moment, and to even savor them. I'll be thinking of you... and praying for you... and for God's blessing on your baby's marriage...
