Where Faith, Food and Life Converge

Monday Mondays 12.15.2014


I think I’ve been dreading this week for almost as long as I’ve been a mother. The day my last baby leaves the house and sets off on the beginning of a life independent of us, well… it’s finally upon me.  My youngest sails off on an adventure that is a dream, and I’m happy – thrilled, really – for her, but at the same time, no matter how much I love my husband, and am looking forward to just being “us” again, this is difficult for a mom who has made a life’s work of being a mom.  Hard to realize that it’s here, and it’s happening the week before Christmas.

Sigh…   I do know of another mom at our church who is in the same situation this very week, except, her baby – a son – is leaving for Marine boot camp.  All things considered, I’m counting my blessings for our daughter’s situation, which is not anywhere close to boot camp!

Ah… despite all the craziness of getting things ready for her departure, I have found a few things to share with you this week.  Be blessed!
