One moves out and the other moves in!

There has been so much going on in my life lately! I went on my first missions trip to Cambodia and as soon as I can figure out how to post my pics I will. I took some really good ones. I've had to say good bye to one ministry and hello to another. My best friend and I are staring in our first ever radio show called "The Imperfect Wives" on Blog Talk Radio via CWA this Tuesday. I'm in the midst of a health scare. We are praying the doctors are wrong and I will be fine. And, Bill is in the process of retiring from the Navy. But with all this going on, the thing that has my attention the most is what's going on in the lives of our twins.

Bobby (the oldest twin by a minute and believe me when I say he claims it to the max announced he was moving out a year ago You can catch up on the story here September into his girlfriends home. She was pregnant and we were becoming grandparents. Wow!! I can't believe it has been just over a year. My heart broke that day in ways I didn't know it could.

This past Monday Bobby called and asked if he could move home. I had no clue what to say so I told him he would have to talk to both his dad and I before he could. It's not that I didn't want him to move home. My heart leap at the possibility. I knew I needed Bill to be with me when we talked. Bill and I needed to talk, not that we haven't already. We have actually talked about it a few times once we began to see the signs that he may want to come home. Ground rules had to be agreed upon and in place.

Bobby shared his heart and we shared ours. The ground rules were set on both sides and Bobby moved home yesterday. The twister in all this is Troy announced on Tuesday that he wanted to move out. Ok, a girl can only take so much in a week. We think Troy wanted to do this because he knew his brother needed to be home with us. Troy is a more serious type. He has a good job and is in collage full time. Though they are twins they are worlds apart in every other way!

The big moves took place yesterday. Troy moved into a friends house and Bobby moved into Troys room. When I woke up this morning it felt like Christmas.. You know that feeling of excitement when you can't wait to get up because you know the one gift you wanted the most is sitting under the tree? That's how I felt this morning. My gift was safe and sound asleep in his bed in our home. I'm sad that Troy decided to spread his wings and move out but I know he will be fine. He's just a few miles away. He never has been able to go to far from his mom. My boys have to grow up and I have to let them. With God by my side I know I can do this..

What a week you've had, my sweet friend! I have been inspired by your faith and focus on the goodness of God through all of this. Your ability to keep moving forward, "pressing toward the mark of the high calling..." is such a great example. You truly "walk what you talk!"

Love you!
