The holidays are almost here. This year they look a little different - with LT being away at college, it's just been us and the girls. He's doing great so far, and I'm ready to see him. Thanksgiving he was home, but was sick the whole week. Although, I've been told he can't stay at our house the entire vacation, so I guess he'll go spend some time with the grands, and have a wonderful time of peace and relaxation. That's what I want for him most. He's done really well in most of his classes, better than in high school. I'm so proud of him for following his dream even when that means moving quite far away. I believe in him, and also that God has him right where he should be. The girls are both having their usual amounts of drama. At least the house is looking nice, and more like a woman lives in it instead of all camo and wildlife. Finally an improvement :-)
Jack is still Jack. Some days are good, some days he has great thought and kindness and shares with me that he can see his blessings. Other days, the demons get in the way. I'm thankful for the good times and know the bad ones will pass.
If you are the praying kind, please keep us in your prayers, that we'd have a good family time together while LT is with us, and that perhaps in some small way Jack will see the good in LT and show him that.
Thankful for each of you reading even when I only write sporadically. I want to do more, and will try. Sometimes it just seems redundant what I have to say, and my hope that each day will get better. Merry Christmas.
