Missin’ My Babies

I truly love getting away with my husband. We don’t get to take trips alone very often. So when we do, we really like to go to awesome places together. We’ve been to Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Atlanta, Chicago, Boston and San Francisco. I think it’s important to have that time together away from our boys. I think about the boys while I’m gone and usually spend a little bit of time looking for souvenirs that will make them smile. I see things that make me think of them. I talk to them and hear their sweet voices. And by the end of the trip, I am missin’ them something awful. The airplane can’t get home quick enough. But I’m sure there aren’t any other parents out there like me, right? Y’all probably enjoy every second away from your kiddos and think I must be crazy to want to come back home from an awesome getaway, don’t ya? But maybe there are some other crazies out there who can’t wait to hug your kids and might even go in their bedrooms and wake them up to get a hug from them while they are dreaming peacefully. Go ahead, confess. Anyone?

  1. I have 2 daughters, 32 and 28, 1 “son” and 2 grandkids. I cherish each and every moment I get to spend with them! We recently went to Israel for 10 days and when we came back, they were all here to welcome us. It was the best weekend!
    I can only imagine our Heavenly Father feels the same way when we take time for him! The older I get, the more I find myself wanting to spend more time in His presence, just like I want to spend precious time with my family!
    God is so GOOD!

  2. Best advice I ever got from an older woman right after I had V, almost 17 years ago, was to go get them out of bed and kiss and hold them “all you want because shes yours”…. And we did plenty of that. I remember coming down stairs and J was sitting on the couch with our new tiny baby. I asked if she was fussy and he just smiled a cat ate the canary grin and goes “nope”.

  3. In a bitter divorce when lies are told I wish I could vacation to get away. Honestly I wish I could see my children they were abducted by their mother as she was in a serious psychotic state not recognized but the social workers. They had chosen to believe the lie she had told. They are in an other state in foster care after two attempts to harm them. I am a nurse and had worked in a psychological facility and had told the dss she needed help the judge had ordered a psychological examination the did no head my warning as she made allegations against me (I was cleared after a year and a half by their own review). They the dss chose to discount my warnings that I felt my children were in grave physical danger because she pointed a finger at me. I think now and my greatest fear is that the state holding my children want to take them and place them for adoption. This has come at a great financial loss to me I am essentially broke ready to lose my home but I still retain my faith in god and my dignity. I do know god has defeated all my enemies befor me but the test of faith is great. So I say cherish the moments and to the women who travel the past of divorce shared physical coustody god took you two to create them they need you both to raise them. Their is harm I see it when I get to visit them on occasion they do not get over this and they just adapt. Thank you and god bless you I say this so others may learn God is good to me I now have a message to share
