The Best Excuse For Not Posting on the 31 Day Challenge!


Readers, I did not post Letters to God on Days 3 or 4 of the 31 Day Blog Challenge, but I have the BEST excuse in existence! ON Day 3 I was welcoming my new Grandson into the world and on Day 4 I was cuddling him and helping the new little family! Today I am barely able to gather my thoughts for this post but I will try.... 

Dear God,

I have been thankful before. I have been thrilled with new happenings in my life. My heart has been full of giddiness before. I have thanked You profusely for my new home, my hubby, my kids, my DIL, my bright yellow truck. I have even thanked you for my goofy dog.

BUT THIS, this is totally different.

An entirely new FLAVOR of thankfulness. A brand new version of happy. This is a place I've never been before. An ear-to-ear-constant-grin kind of place. I am a puddle of goofiness. A drunken wobbly sort of thought process is affecting my everyday chores. I keep opening my laptop and getting all mushy at the adorable screen-saver I just uploaded. 

Sigh....

Thank you God for the sweet arrival of my first GRANDCHILD. He is perfect. He is stunning. And he is totally worth moving nearly 2,000 miles to see! I am in awe at the beauty and strength I saw in my son and his wife. Amazing! 

Dear God, I am out of words...I'm sitting here shaking my head in wonder. Hubs and I are simply head-over-heels in love with this new little munchkin. Thank you for a peaceful and smooth (though long) birth. You were there, we all knew it, could all feel it. Thank you Father God, thank you.  

I love you,

  6. I would say a VERY good reason for missing a day or two!! I know exactly how you feel - giddy and head over heels...I have SIX grandkids (one is a "step" so we didn't see her from birth; but was present for all of the other 5 - 4 boys and a girl). LOVE LOVE LOVE the feelings I get when I am around them...they are ages (almost) 17, (almost) 15, 6, 3 1/2, 1 1/2 years and 3 months old.! ENJOY being a grandma - or whatever you will be called!
