Gone on to Glory


My Gramie officially went on to be with Jesus this past Tuesday evening. We had a beautiful Sunday with her. She just lifted her hand up to Jesus and worshiped Him. You could just see it on her face that she was praising God. It was a sweet last time together. Thank you so much for your love and prayers during this time. It has meant so much to me and my family. There will be a visitation at her home in Gilbert this Friday from 6 pm - 8 pm, and then the funeral will be the 18th of February at the Methodist Church right across the street from her home.


Today, I was called in to be a substitute teacher at Heritage Christian Academy. I really enjoyed my time there. I was even able to teach my students from last year French. Okay, I really didn't have to TEACH them French, and in all good fun, I got them nice and confused by speaking in some Spanish, but I couldn't help myself. God worked everything out so quickly this morning. Hart's dad came and picked up Micaiah and he did awesome at their house. He took a 2 hr and 10 minute nap!!! How come he likes to show off for the grandparents and not do that when I want him to?! He did well with a bottle and his grandparents LOVED having him!

It's so funny, because last night I was with a group of sweet friends and we were talking about how hard it is being stay-at-home-moms. And then, the very next day, I experienced being a working mama; leaving behind my precious baby boy to be taken care of by someone else (even though his grandparents are awesome!), pumping at work, and missing my baby so so much. I have to say I don't know what is more difficult. Each has it's own difficulties, but I do know that it gave me a better perspective to be thankful for the days that I am at home and to cherish these moments that I would miss if I weren't able to stay at home with Micaiah. I love this stage he is in. He is so cuddly and smiley and this morning he had his teething ring shoved in his mouth with drool all down the front of his outfit and I just wanted to gobble my sweet boy up!

Even though this is a hard time with missing my Gramie, I think God has given me some sweet opportunities to focus on Him and the blessings that are so abundant in my life.
