I love the Fall

It's my favorite time of year. Actually this fall has moved so quickly that if you blinked you'd miss it. Last weekend we traveled up on the Mountain and visited family. I love going up there. Seeing the beauty of the mountains, the colors of the leaves, and breathing the fresh air-you feel so close to God. Looking around at all of His beautiful creations you wonder how anyone could doubt Him. Our God is an Awesome God.

Tony is still hurting. The vitamins I ordered him came in and I also got him an herbal rub for his knees and hands and lower back. I know it'll take some time but I'm hoping after a few months of being on this vitamin he will begin to see a difference in his pain. We have been a little lazy lately and have greatly enjoyed being together. We've been piling up in bed and watching movies together. :)

I also have other news. I have waited to share because I know I have viewers that are friends, family and church family so if you are one of these hold your breath. For my readers out there in blogosphere it's easy to share these things with you because well, you don't know us.

I've waited a week since learning this and since almost all of our family has been told I think it's safe to say.

How many of you would like to take a chance on guessing what I'm about to share?


At all?

Or is the suspense just killing you?

I have to laugh!

At this point it could be anything!

I suppose I should just go ahead and say it.

So I will.

I'm going to be a grandmother!

Did you catch that?

Heaven and Matt just found out that they are expecting their first blessing!

Heaven and I did go to the doctor to confirm the pregnancy test but so far that is it. No sonograms or anything yet. Right now the guestimated delivery date will be June 17th 2010.

I am especially excited too that my brother is also expecting his first child, a son in March 2010. I'm pretty sure I'll be the appointed babysitter and I just have to laugh that last year at this time I was mourning not being able to conceive myself. God knew then just what He had in store for me this next year! Not one, but two babies!

God is so good to me.

Please continue to lift Tony up in prayer. Constant pain can pull ones spirit down. We will see victory in this in Jesus' name!

(be sure to visit our homeschool blog where I'm updating at least weekly, more often most of the time, on our comings and goings, field trips and our homeschooling journey!)

I'll keep Tony in prayer- I'm rather intimate with that type of pain.
