Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

But WAIT!!! Just WAIT!!!


Have you ever run after someone with these words, "just wait, just wait, I have more to tell you?"  You usually can hardly breath and the listener thought the story was over.  The story might be one full of joy or one so full of struggles you can't believe what you are hearing.  Well I have both, but I am just keeping the struggling part of my story to myself...I mean, who wants to hear those anyway?

So  I am running to catch you after you read my last post with the next part of the story.

Thursday night, while I was at the end of my shift at work, my newly-wed-daughter poked her beautiful head into the room where I work with children.  She said very calmly and matter-of-factly...come to think of it, so not like her..."mom have you gotten Sarah's text?"  Well no!!!! I hadn't.   I had been corralling rowdy elementary school-aged-boys.  She turns her phone around to reveal an answered prayer so deep in my spirit that I literally thought my heart would stop.

Without any reserve I started to scream....and jump...and scream...and laugh...and cry...and scream and dance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yes, there was no reserve in front of people I hardly knew and don't know....I lost it!!!!.  When something so wonderful is announced how can you keep it inside?

My heart has busted all week with little one coming home to his parents and now this!!!

The phone picture showed my little grandson with a shirt that said....MY MOM IS...then in his lap was the jar of Prego.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am going to be a grandmommy two times this  year.  My daughter-in-law, who has been fighting years of infertility,  is pregnant!!  So my new grandson will be a big brother in November.  Can my heart handle anymore?  Marriages and grandchildren...I would say a wonderful combination in this season of life, and just the piece of joy that keeps me from sinking through other struggles.  God is so gracious!

Due to the legal items on the adoption I will not be able to post the happy family for six months...just know he is beautiful and looks like our family.  He has hair like all mine had and brown eyes like his mother...he is a Wright!

Okay my dear friend I am jumping and all that too that's called the "happy dance" really - and so from now on when I say I am doing the happy dance you know what I mean - it's so thrilling to be a grandma -- great things are in store.. Thanks for the "but wait - just wait- wink!!

Praise God! Congratulations- how exciting!

Nearly Martha said...

Congratulations. I love the way the news was broken too! So funny x

podso said...

So clever and it took me a minute to figure it out and take in your heart-stopping news. They say that happens often in the process of adopting, and when it does it's like a double blessing/miracle. Congratulations! What a year you are having. Lots of hugs.

You have more excitement than any one person I know. I know so many couples this has happened to. Our son and DIL adopted our Princess when she was born 3 1/2 years ago and she has been the delight of our lives.

Three part time jobs! Wow! you truly are an amazing woman. Blessings abundant!

Sue said...

Donna Volkenannt said...

How wonderful! Congratulations to you all!

Debbie said...

Get out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can hardly believe this wondeful news! You need to take the whole family to the nearest amusement park and take a picture in front of a roller coaster because you are definitely on a ride just like you said "that" day months ago. As it turns out, the highs have been higher than we could have ever imagined.

I am so happy for you. Wish you could see into my heart right now.

Oh, what joyous news!!

How exciting for all of you. I am always so amazed at how God gives us such blessings - sometimes even in the middle of difficult times. He is generous - and often, downright lavish with His love!!

GOD BLESS!

(Wishing all of you a wonderful Easter!)
