Today we are headed to the pumpkin patch. It's going to be muddy as it has rained for days and the ground is soggy.
My mother-in-law and her husband came for a visit this past weekend. We had a great time as we always do when Gramma and Grandpa visit. The children spoiled rotten but then, that's what grandparents are for. They come from Massachusetts and I think, expected warm weather. Instead, they were subjected to a cooler than normal temperatures and no sunshine.
Ben has found out he is deploying in mid-November. That can mean anything in the Army. I had hoped for after Thanksgiving but that's okay. I'm keeping the good thought that the sooner he leaves the sooner he returns. I won't even think that he could always be extended. Positive thoughts, right?
A dear friend found out she is pregnant. I'm sooo happy for her. She found a good caring doctor who is doing all he can to ensure this is a "sticky baby".
Today is our turn at the 40 Days for Life prayer vigil. We pray from 10-11 CST in front of the misnamed Women's Clinic every Friday. Last week it rained the whole time. I think it'll be dry this week. This past Sunday, was the life chain in our town. It saved at least one baby's life. This woman had gone to the Hope Pregnancy Center confused and unsure of what she wanted to do. They told her to pray about it. On Monday, she came back to the clinic and said she was going to keep the baby. What made up her mind? The life chain which she encountered on Sunday. She felt if all those people praying in the rain wasn't a sign from God for her to keep a baby, then what is? I had tears in my eyes hearing this story as did the gentleman telling me the story.
Sister and Honey are dancing in this year's Nutcracker. Sister is a mouse and Honey is a bon-bon. I'm quite excited as I am each year even though I grumble sometimes about the time commitment. I do enjoy it.
With Ben leaving soon, I'll just (my friends will know what I mean), we have one last chance. Please pray for us.
