I know I am running late.
I know life keeps jogging along as I am skipping, enjoying the slower pace....or trying to.
I can't go into December without reflecting back on three years ago. Three years ago my oldest and his wife were still going through treatments in order to conceive their first child. Many of you prayed for them. Three years ago they opened their home and heart to a little boy name Joshua, my first grandson. The day they announced their desire to adopt him, we were celebrating the engagements of two of our other children. Three new family members were to be added to our family.
I also hear the voice of a friend of mine from decades again say, "whenever I call your house it is like calling the Lucy Show!" So began the fast pace Lucy Show of the Wright household.
Since that day of announcing the adoption of our first grandson and the weddings of two of our children, we have now added two in-laws, and SIX, yes I said SIX grandsons!
Such a testimony of God's work in all of our lives. We just never know. We only see in part, yet He sees the whole.
Today I wanted to reflect and rejoice. Things still go up and down. Many of my daily struggles are the same, but somewhere in the midst of struggles there are six little boys that smile at Grand Mommy. When they warm my heart with a smile, I remember God isn't finished yet!!!
In the business of feeding the twins, and chasing two, two year olds, I didn't get a picture of my daughter and her family. Thanks for your prayers. They move this week. They will be an hour and half drive away. Their new home will be an adjustment for all, as she steps up to bat.
