The Simple Things

Yay for fun times with mom. We are home alone for a few days. Kristen and Jay are in Michigan visiting his family and dad and luke are canoing. It's fun to spend time alone with mom. Today we stayed at home but decided to go shopping around 3:00. We went to Old Navy and Borders and then went out to eat at PEI WEI (yum!). We came home and read together on the couch (each our own book). Then we talked a lot...and even cried a lot. It was really wonderful. I love my mom. It was nice to spend time remembering and looking to the future. I think there is just a lot of change happening or about to happen and it has got us both feeling sad and sentamental. We're excited about the change, too. But it is still sometimes hard. I'm still not ready to go back to school...mostly because I'm not ready to leave my family. And I'm not ready to leave all the wedding plans here and miss out on all of it off at school. I've been realizing how much I'm going to miss...most of the planning, the showers, the decorating...lots. Oh well. God has wonderful plans for me this semester. I feel at peace knowing He holds the future. That's the reason I can feel joy when I look to the future. I'm excited to see what God holds in store!

That's all...just a short update. I love my mom :)

I love my mom too and your mom. Being with family over break was wonderful. I love and miss my family and it has only been a day since I have seen them :(
