Now The Waiting Begins

Day 231

My children are coming today and I am beyond excited! I just received a text with a picture of my granddaughter grinning ear-to-ear saying they were on the way.

Traveling with a toddler is hard. The last time they made this trip our granddaughter was a baby. They seem prepared with an assortment of things to keep her occupied and help pass the time.

Waiting is hard. They are driving so it will be a long day. I am glad I reserved a few last minute things to do today so I will not be pacing the floor for hours.

I now know how my Dad felt all those years when we traveled by car to see him. I am now seeing his side and I understand so much more now than I did then. I will never forget pulling into his driveway and seeing him rush out the front door with his arms spread wide open. Yes, Dad, I know now how you felt.

My posts will be short for the next few days because this time with our family will fly by too fast. Nothing is more important than this.

Hope you have a great week!
