I'M A MOTHER ~ WORRY IS MY MIDDLE NAME

If you could keep our son and daughter in your prayers today I would appreciate it. My husband and I have been on vacation since last Sunday. Today our children will be driving up to meet us and it's always a big day of worries for me. Pray for their safety on the road most of all and then a small prayer for me to have peace of mind. Our daughter will be driving for at least an hour into Los Angeles to pick her brother up and then it's a six hour drive with a large portion of the trip on a two lane road with passing.

We will all be driving home on Sunday and prayers for our safety home would be appreciated. Thank you for your support.

If you want some information on what to do in the summer at Mammoth Lakes, CA here is a link. Mammoth Lakes is known for the Winter skiing but the summer has hidden treasures that are covered with snow all winter long.

This is where we stay each year. ~Wood's Lodge~




P.S. Skye along with our grand dog Charlie are at home with our son-in-law which means allot to me. It's also a nice feeling going on vacation and knowing that your house isn't sitting there empty all week long.

Your pics of the scenery are just breath taking. I bet you just love it there! Prayers for your kids. I am from a little country town and experienced Los Angeles last year.... wow... I was glad my husband was driving! So traveling mercies for your kids!!!! Just turn your worries over to God and do not doubt. HE does hear your prayers ♥

I remember when my kids were small thinking, if I can just get them grown up I won't worry so much. Yeah. That isn't the way it works is it? So much bigger stuff to worry about as they get to be adults. My mantra-pray, don't worry!

Your pics are lovely...I've never been to that part of the country so its on my list. Enjoy your holiday and safe travels to all!

You got it - prayers of safety for all!

My sister Kathy used to have a home in Mammoth Lakes! Small world, huh? She LOVED it there..

Have a great time and take some great photos!

Laura said...

Will be praying for sure! I'm the same way. I feel very uncomfortable when someone has all our kids at once and there is driving involved. Scary- it must be something inborn in us mommies! Enjoy the rest of your vacay! It looks beautiful! I know what you mean! Our house is never vacant when we leave because my hubby won't kennel the dogs so we always have a house-sitter.

Praying for God's hedge of protection around all of you on during your traveling.

No matter how old our children get, we still worry!

ENJOY your time away with your family!

Blessings~

Have a great time with your family. My prayers are with you.

Heather said...

I'll be praying for your children, that they make it safely there & back. The worry over our children starts from the moment we hear their first cry and just never goes away.

I hope you are having a relaxing and memorable vacation.

Beautiful photos! I'll be sending lots of positive energy your way for a safe trip for all of you! xoxo :-)

I will most certainly keep them in my prayers. I know what you mean. I worry. We worry because we love our children. It is only natural. I like Mammoth Lakes. The last time we were there, it was in 1997, when we went with my mil. That was a trip to remember. In fact, the black water tank fell and was dragging along the road as we were going down the hill We were fortunate to find someone to repair it. Several hours later and a case of beer, we were back on our way.

I totally forgot you were on vacation. Enjoy the down time and no computers :).

I said a prayer for the safe drive, I'm the same way. Have a glass of wine and know so many are thinking and praying right now for you!

the lodge is so awesome, just beautiful.

Rose said...

I do understand - my son will be able to drive on his own (and drive his brother places) in a few months and I'm already worrying!
