A Good Life

There is a time for everything...
But a lot of times, we aren't ready.
We are never ready for the time to come.

It's amazing how God makes things happen in His time.
Regardless of whether or not we are ready, He just calls the shots.
In a way, I'm grateful He does.
I really don't think I could handle making big decisions in this life.
Sometimes, time just takes your breath away...
knocks the wind out of your sails,
and leaves you gasping,
unprepared,
shocked.

Tuesday, knocked the wind out of me.
My husband called me at work (which never happens)
to tell me that his Mamaw was found that morning and no one could wake her up.
It just totally surprised me.  I wasn't prepared for this news.  And I know I've shared with you all that I'm far from my home and family and its not always easy for me.
Mamaw has become my Mamaw.  She loves me and listens to me and cares about me and now she isn't here.  And sometimes, I feel a little selfish for even being upset about it all when I didn't have the opportunity to know her nearly as long as her children/grandchildren/great grandchildren/great-great grandchildren.  Honestly, so many people loved Mamaw.

Words used to describe her:
loving
motherly
caring
faithful
young at heart

In the 5+ years I've known Mamaw, she has made me feel a part of the family.
She told me she loved me before my husband told me he loved me.
I will miss her.

So, in this hiatus from blogging, please, pray for our family.
Specifically pray for my mother in-law and my husband.
Thank you
