It is truly a gorgeous day here in East Texas!!
"A disciplined life encourages a courageous life"
Don't you just love our gorgeous American Flag! Each day as I drive to the Nursing Home to see my dad, one of the roads leads me straight in front of a beautiful, HUGE, American Flag.
To see it flying high and swaying in the breeze...is such a beautiful sight. I always thank God for our FREEDOM!
Well....all of my friends that live here in our area, already know that our oldest grandson (Tyler) was sworn in to the Air Force this past week. However...many of my blogging friends may not be aware of this.
I really don't consider myself as an ordinary grandmother....NO...I
have developed a unique, one of a kind, relationship with each of my grandchildren. I have a bond with each grandson and granddaughter that is a loveliness far beyond rare!
I have written a journal for each grandchild and on the lines, I have written so well...the joys and the Blessings of their life growing up.
Not only are there great things written in these journals...but I have also included their hardships, their sick days, and the times when they simply gave me something that I wanted to remember as best I could.
I think you all probably get my point here.....I LOVE MY GRANDCHILDREN!! We as a family are so Blessed. We all live within 5 miles of each other, and most days, I have at least three or four of the grands....stopping by "Shug's and Pops" for a snack or meal and to give Sam and I a big ol' hug!!!!
For all these reasons....it is very hard for me to even think
of Tyler being in the Air Force. My heart has an unstoppable pounding when I think of the places he may have to go.
Tyler is a good Christian young man and I know that God will remain in his heart....no matter how hard or difficult the situation may be.
Tomorrow....Tyler will be traveling to Dallas to take a very difficult Agility and Stamina test. This is for a particular field that he is choosing to go in to while in the AF. Please pray for Tyler! He has been somewhat nervous about taking the test....
I am praying God's Will.
I find it amazing how blogging can simply take a big load off of my heavy thoughts and send them right out the window!!
