More Thoughts.....

Okay, I started this morning off with a luke warm cup of coffee and that is NOT the way to start off a morning. No way! So Levi dumped it out, for me, and we are starting it again, oh if only everything in life were that easy to start again.

Mike and Tammy and girls spent the night at Rusty and Mary's last night, and they will be spending another night over there tonight. Then we will be getting them back for 2 or 3 more nights after that. He has to get some things lined up with the Carpenters Union before they can head home and start packing their house up for the big move up here at the end of the month. Our little assembly will certainly be praying for them so that everything can go as smoothly as possible for them.

It felt good to have them in church Thursday night. Once all of our home brethren come home from their holiday travels our little church house will be plum full. We have been getting a lot of visiting brethren in still and so the Lord continues to let us know that He is mindful of us. WHEW!

My little townhouse is small, but I think it's pretty cute. It's a temporary solution this year, but I am really enjoying it. We have lived here 3 weeks and we have had company 2 of those weeks so far. What a great way to christen a house. I get a little nervous about larger families coming in, not because of me but because I dont want them to feel crowded. However, through the years, even when I was a girl we had kids sleeping all over the floor of our house and those are the best memories of hospitality. I just have to remind myself of that.

Lastly, the wedding to come. Hmmmm....boundaries. I want to be so careful to not step on bride's families toes. I want to do what I can to help, but not make anyone feel uncomfortable. After all, a little girl dreams of her wedding day for many years, and truth be told most boys don't. At least my boys didn't. You hear stories of people who feel like the grooms family wasn't involved enough or the ones that took it over....lol I want to be neither story. I just want to celebrate this wonderful event, and be exactly what I need to be.......

I think you are a wonderful Sister, and I do not think you will come close to taking it over! And I really think that they would love to let you be as involved as you want to be!

It is so nice to have company...to be able to show our hosputality. I also read back a few posts and LOVED the pictures. Your boys are so photogenic. Being the mom of the son for a wedding really does put you in a new place ha ha. We went through that a couple years ago. Good luck with the wedding I am sure everything will be beautiful.

Just be yourself Trina. Everyone loves you just the way you are! And don't forget to talk to her about your thoughts. I think that is where most issues arise is lack of communication. I can't wait to make a trip out there for the wedding.

Sis.Trina, i have the most WONDERFUL mother in law. I call her mom. I never thought i would ever be able to call anyone other than my real mother mom. We have a precious relationship, given of God. I hope you get to have the same relationship with your soon to be daughter.

Congratulations on the wonderful blessing in your family. Perhaps in the near future you'll be posting pics of your grandbabies!
