I have a hard time being spontaneous because that means I'm not in control. How are you when plans change? Sometimes I'm okay on the little things, like this last week Mark had taken the whole week off. We were gone Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and he took the extra days so he could go shooting at the gun range he belongs to. This is something he loves to do and just doesn't get to go as often as he would like.
Well we had rain and cold weather on Thursday and Friday so he wasn't able to go :( He doesn't usually like to go on the weekends. Remember on the 16th he had a tooth pulled so we didn't celebrate his birthday. Well that tooth ended giving him some discomfort so he went to the dentist on Thursday. Come to find out that he needs a root canal on the tooth next to it which is how he spent his Saturday!
So some spontaneous things are okay, especially when they involve going to the show. As you know we saw "Last Vegas" on Thursday and on Friday we went to see The Hunger Games - Catching Fire (IMDb). I have never read the books but I loved the first movie. I loved it so much that I bought it and watch it often so I was so ready for Catching Fire! I loved this movie, I was so into it that I didn't even realize how long it was and when it ended I was caught by surprise. I wanted more and believe me they leave you wanting more......

So I didn't get my laundry done and I didn't find time to work on my second tree which really throws me off but this kind of thing is workable. It's okay to be spontaneous sometimes when things are little. So my laundry got done on Saturday and I worked all day on the second tree. Hopefully I will get it finished today!
Now for the things that happen that I can't control. The ones that have your stomach in a knot most days, crying often and your heart breaking. There is something I haven't shared and I just feel it is time. Our daughter Amber and our son in law Dylan are getting divorced. Things haven't been good for the last year and he moved out 3 months ago.
Helping her deal with something like this has my heart hurting so badly for her. Of course I miss Dylan too, he has been a part of our family for over 12 years. I'm just asking that you keep them in your prayers.
I feel that God has a plan for Amber and happiness in her future but for now we must have patience because this is something that takes time. All we can do is hold her close and let her know how much she is loved.
