Yay!! Its Friday!!

As usual, I'm thrilled that its Friday!! We have a pretty busy weekend planned, which is pretty typical for us.

Tonight we have Bible Study at church where the topic of the evening is " How could a good God allow suffering?" Should be very interesting. I'm looking forward to it.

Tomorrow, pending the weather cooperates, we will hopefully work out in our yard. The grass needs mowed again and we have 20 bags of mulch in our garage that we've had for 3 or more weeks, that need to go out in our landscaping and playground. Between the rain and storms lately and being so busy, we haven't had a chance to do anything in our yard other than mow once every week and a half or so. The weather forecast doesn't look promising for tomorrow, but I'm hoping since they are saying "scattered" showers, they won't hit us.

Then Sunday is church and celebrating Mothers Day. Unfortunately, this Mothers Day will be bittersweet. The bitter part of it is we're missing a Mother/Grandmother this year. Its been 2 weeks since my Grammy passed. I've been doing alright, but there hasn't been a day that has gone by that I don't think about her. In fact its usually several times a day. I think I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that she's gone. I have mostly good days but occasionally there are times when I feel sad and miss her so much.  We are planning on visiting her grave on Sunday and then having lunch together.

The sweet part is, I get to spend Mothers Day with my lovely Mom and I got her a pretty awesome gift, so I'm hoping that will lighten her spirits some, since I know this Mothers Day is going to be so hard for her. She's going to love the gift and I can't wait to give it to her!! (I would tell you what it is, but I'm not sure how often she checks my blog, so I'll wait and tell you after Mothers Day).

I'm also excited that Mother's Day this year will mean so much more to me now that I'm about to be a mother. I couldn't be more excited about becoming a mother. October can't get here soon enough. :-)
