Tuesday Night Thoughts......

Do you ever have those days when you just ponder on things ALOT...... Well today was one of those days for me and I thought I would share a few of those thoughts with you.

First there are only 65 Calendar days and 13 GWCA LID dates ahead of us!!!!! Can you believe it???? After all this time waiting and I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. And I have to admit that there is a different feel in the air around here, but as I start to think what I keep wondering is.....

What do our older kids really truly think about this? They seem excited , they have let their feelings be known about the long wait, I know that they are going to love her beyond belief, but deep down what do they think? Any of you that have older kids , have you ever wondered the same?

Another thing I keep thinking about is Franceskas 100 Good wishes quilt. It seems like a lifetime ago that I started receiving squares for it. And somewhere down the road they got put in a plastic box and was left in a corner of her room for a later date, but now that I have made so many what I hope to be lifelong friends, if any of you would like to send a fabric square for her quilt and a good wish I would just love that. If you want to just email me at KrisLRodriguez@aol.com and I will give you my address. That is going to be my "Nesting Project" for after Christmas.

And last I have decided to stop working on December 19th!! As many of you know my Momma has Alzheimers and things are really starting to change. It was a really rough weekend and I just want to spend more time with her and also I want to be there for my Daddy. Alzheimers sucks!! And it is just eating her away bit by bit. Please call your parent's if you still have them or your grandparents, tell them how much you love them, or give them a really tight squeeze, you just never know.

I know this was a pretty random post, but it's just what was on my mind tonight , thanks for listening. Love and blessings to all of you.

You know it is the time for deep thoughts.

I know the wait is long. Look at the friends you have made along the way. Your journey is coming to an end.

My son is 4. I was at my girly doctor appointment today. He was talking about when my son came into this world. It seems so long ago. I can't imagine how it feels to wait this long.

Hey friend,

I am sorry to hear about your mom. I have a friend going through the same thing. It is a terrible thing. Please know I will pray for you and your family.

You are getting close and it is so exciting. I think, I will be so excited when you go to china.

PS. We have been doing renos and my squares are in storage. BUT, as soon as I get the storage unpacked from the container, I am sending a square your way.

I think of you often friend.

I am so sorry to hear about your mom. Its just sickening. Thank goodness she has three wonderful daughters. She is such a strong woman. Deep thoughts are good for the soul.Its natural to question things. I hope you have a wonderful day.
P.S. Did you start "The Shack"?

3D said...

I am sorry that you are facing this with your mom but good for you for finding a solution that works and allows you to be with your parents.

I have the squares by the washer and I may even wash them tonight...gotta get started on it!

Keep smilin!

Our Journey to Jadyn Nicole said...

Hello Kris,
I've always known you to be random, but that's ok...that's why I love you. I am so sorry I did not realize your mom had Alzheimer’s. We will keep you and your family in our prayers. I’m so glad you are seeing a light at the end of this journey. I will have to live through you for a little while longer, but we are soon to follow.

Take Care,
Hugs - Vicki

Hi Kristy, I am so sorry about your mom!!!!! That's terribly sad!!!
I'm still reserved about the adoption, I will feel better once the I600A vs. I800 confusion is fixed. When I know that the last paperwork hurdle is over then I will allow myself to begin to feel again, otherwise I'm protecting my heart for a little longer!!! My I71H expires in June so we need one more update and there lies the problem, unless all of a sudden things speed up and we travel to China before June!!!! (I really doubt that will happen, but you never know)

Oh, you just reminded me I still have not had Kaite and Abbey's quilt made yet! Terrible.....March will be three years..

Fliss and Mike Adventures said...

Oh... I have been thinking myself... we are at the beginning of the end... though all we need to do now is get through the I-800a/600a thing... I was thinking only yesterday... there is a BIG chance that our babies could be born by now... oh what a thought... I am slowly letting myself get a little excited and buying gates for the stairs next week... oohhhh

Kelley said...

You are almost to single LID digits :) Thanks for stopping by our blog!

Our older kids absolutely adore and spoil the two little ones. Just last night, my son said, "Mom, do you know how happy our family is now that Raegan is home? I love my little sisters"

:) ..... you have so many blessings that await you :)

I am so glad your time is getting closer. I know the wait has been so long...
Can't wait to see a pic of that finished quilt:)

Debz said...

Wow funny how this long wait has seen so many seasons hey? Things look a lot different in our lives than when we first began this journey.
Sending up a prayer for your Mom.
Bless you,
