Great Day For Up

Great Day For Up! Ever read that book? It's by Dr. Seuss, it's great (note to self: buy for kids) I woke up this morning feeling great. My kids snuggled with me and told me jokes. My husband made me coffee (he does that everyday, he's awesome like that). I get to stay home with my babies instead of going to a job that stresses me out. I'm leaving for Washington in 1 week and 6 days. It's been almost 2 years since I've seen my family.

I'm excited to see my older sister Sarah which after much heartbreak and frustration we are finally in a good place. I so desperately desire a complete and honest friendship with her. I desire to be best friends. Somebody we could both go to for support and love. I think we're on our way, but it's gonna take a lot more work. It'd be so much easier to just walk away. The problem with walking away is that there is so much I'd miss out on. Sarah is such a fantastic person. Pray for us will you? I appreciate it.

I get to see my baby sister. My best friend. I can't wait to hug her. She's been through so much and I'm so proud of her. She inspires me. I'm gonna stay at her house and probably get minimal amount of sleep. I want to have a sleep over with Sarah, our Mom, Meggie and me. That'd be awesome! Now that I think on it, I don't think we've ever done that.

I get to see my Mommy. I miss her so much. I miss her smell and her hands. There's something special about a persons Mom. Even at 26 almost 27 I desire her comfort and her overall presence. I can't wait for her to get to spend time with my kids. They miss her so much.

I get to see my Brothers In Law. I love these guys. I always wanted brothers growing up and now I have 2 of the greatest guys ever as my brothers. They couldn't be more different, but they are both so much fun and so wonderful.

I get to see my nieces and my nephew! Oh how I long to hold and squeeze and play with them. I bet they are so big.

I also get to see my Uncle Lee and Auntie Terie. These two people are just awesome. They mean so much to me. They are such a comforting presence.

And my Dad. Oh my Dad. He's just goofy, scatterbrained, with such a big heart. He's gotten so much better and keeping in touch. He texts (gasp!) yes he texts and calls regularly. I'm so proud of him. My Dad is all grown up *brushes away a tear*

I get to see my Grandma. There's also something special about a persons Grandma. She's so great and fun. Some of my fondest memories growing up are of me and her playing Aggravation. As a side note, if you go to that link, that is not what the original board looked like. The new board just looks...stupid.

I'm gonna go to my old church. The people there are so special. The pastor married Derek and I. I can't wait to see them.

This post has turned into a monster. I did not intend for it to be this long.The people that know me best will probably tell you I can be long winded at times.

I guess I better go to make sure my kids are dressed and not tearing each other's hair out.

I hope you have a Great Day For Up! Thanks for reading my ramblings.
