Updates and Belly Shot

Dan's mom passed away early on Saturday morning.  We will all miss her but thankfully she is no longer suffering.  And I know she is celebrating in heaven with Dan's father right now!  In that, we all take great comfort.

The kids and I will be heading to Massachusetts on Tuesday. We are looking forward to seeing Dan.  Even though he travels for work frequently, I believe the longest he has ever been gone for work is 9 days.   We will have been a part 11 days by the time we see him.  (I have a couple of friends with husbands in the military who are currently deployed, and even though I pray for them frequently, I always seem to ramp up my prayers for them when Dan is traveling.)

We kept busy this weekend.  We had basketball games on Saturday afternoon and Mass on Sunday morning.  On Sunday afternoon, Peter went to a friend's house to play while Sarah and I worked our shift at the Girl Scout cookie booth.  Luckily it warmed up to the 40s so we didn't freeze!

And then of course, there was homework and studying for tests and now it's Monday and we just keep rolling along.

Here is the belly this week.  Week 28, Day 6

I am sorry for your loss but am also glad she is no longer suffering. I do wish there was a way I could order girl scout cookies from you online. I don't know any girl scouts in the area and love supporting girls I know. It's been so cold her (school is cancelled again today) I haven't seen a single cookie booth yet.

I'm glad you get to see your husband, but sad it's because of his mother's loss. You are so right to keep the focus on where she is now! I love that dress, you are so cute!

I'm so sorry for your family's loss, Beth. It is so good that she is no longer in pain. Safe travels up to MA.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul, and all the souls of the faithfully departed, rest in peace. Amen.

So sorry about Dan's Mom. I do understand the 'not suffering' and knowing she is with her soulmate in heaven now. Safe travels for you and the kids.
