It's Monday and the Sun is Shining!

We've had some nasty weather here in our little corner of the world lately. First it was almost unbearably cold, then it warmed up and rained part of Saturday and Sunday.

However, on the way to church yesterday, as I drove west, there was a faint rainbow in the western sky. That told me it wasn't going to rain much longer, and when I got out of church, sure enough the sun was shining.

It's supposed to get up to 60 today and is at 57 now. Unfortunately, I'm stuck inside but I do have a window that allows me to look outside.

I appreciate the comforting comments about my grandson moving away. I know I'm not the first to feel this loss, and it helps to know others have survived.

When my husband and I first married, we lived in a small mobile home attached to his grandparent's house. While we lived there, we had our first child, who happens to be the mother of the grandchild who just moved away. I was a stupid young girl when this child was born, and gave not a second thought to moving away from this older couple who had fallen in love with our baby.

I'm sure they knew we wouldn't always live in a trailer attached to their house, but they certainly weren't ready to see us move. I later learned from another relative, how upset this grandmother was when we moved 30 minutes away. That same grandmother also told me often that you pay for the things you do on this earth before you ever leave it, and I am now paying for taking that precious great grandchild away from her. It's true, what goes around, comes around.

I hope you are having a great day. Pray for the people of Haiti. Love one another.

We all must have wings to venture out on our own. It's learning to come back to the nest for visits that's the hard part.
Been raining here too. But today is warm and the sun is shining.

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog!
As the child of divorced parents and a military brat, I know how it feels to move away from the family, the familiar and the loved. As much as your grandson wants to spread his wings and fly, remember that birds return to their home...he loves you, too and I know when the new wears off, he will let you know how much he misses you!
Have a Great Tuesday!

The sun has been out today. But short lived, for we are to have thunder storms tonight. Good grief. Oh I hope I don't have to pay for every bad deed I did on earth before I depart.....yuck.
