TERRIFIC TUESDAY.....

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

Today was a great day......did a ;lot of catching up with people which was good....

DS had his 2nd day at work....i think he is still alive....lol....DH was at his place earlier tonight and he was alive.....have just texted him and haven't had a reply but maybe he has gone to be early.....
All good I am sure......

Went and picked DD's car up tonight....DH drove it till it totally stopped and them we towed it the rest of the way to our place......DH wanted the tyres off it however they don't fit the trailer so it has been a waste of time bringing it here...however DD is going to get rid of it and who ever wants it can get it from our place......hopefully it won't be here too long although it is nice to see it back in the yard....am quite partial to the wee car and am still annoyed with her that she didn't put oil in it and killed it.....

Have got a really quiet day tomorrow which I am looking forward to....maybe I will get a day for me this week...woohoo...that would be awesome....

Just Talked to DS and all is good.....

Am off to make DH his lunch for tomorrow then into byes....
Later

MONDAY MONDAY....CAN'T TRUST THAT DAY....LOL.....

Monday, May 07, 2012

Today was a great day....
DS had his 1st day at work and I am praying that he will give it his best and achieve a job if their is one going by the time he has finished his trial.....he tpold me tonight he has 3 weeks work so hopefully there is a job at the end of it....

He is going to get a mate to fix the window for us which will be great....
He has another friend staying nthere which is quite good a present...at least the hoouse is not unattended while he is at work......

It is late here and I am off to bed...temp is -2 deg C at present so i would say we are in for a good frost tonight.....

Thankyou all for your support...it is so so appreciated.....

I am continuing to pray that DS will achieve this trial at this job and will get used to the hard work and end up with a job at the end of it and also keep taking the steps forward that he is taking......

I know you will all join me in praying and I thank you for that....
God hears our prayers and answers them and I look forward to sharing the answers with you all...
The fact he had his first day at work today is an answer to prayer

SUNDAY SUNDAY.....

Sunday, May 06, 2012

Sunday is half over for us.....
We are just heading off to night church and really enjoy just sitting being a part of it.....

My son is all good.....his sore jaw is gone and I don't think his head is bothering him too much....
A few more things have been peiced together by some other friends of his.....
We saw that the letterbox at his house was demolished however we didn't see on friday that part of it had been thrown through one of the front windows breaking it.....
This is something the young lad that beat him will be paying for....
I am sure I will have the streegth when needed to deal with this young man...he has got away with this behaviour too long and to be honest i have been looking for an opportunity to hold him accountable for his actions for some years....now I have it....
Will be fascinating to see what happens when i send him the bill and expect him to pay it....

All good....
We are coming into a new week and what happened last week has happened...we will deal with it and move into the new week.....
Am looking foreward to hearing how DS goes with his first day at work tomorrow....

Have a great sunday peeps....

    I am reading this Sunday morning (for us). I will leave for Church in just shy of an hour and will pray for your son and his situation. I will pray for you both, as parents, involved in a situation that just should not have happened. Have a wonderful day and an inspiring church service this evening.

SATURDAY OVER.....

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Saturday is over for me...1st double Graduation done and dusted...it went really well although am getting a little concerned that i may run out of the graduation bears that i give to all my kids that raduate.....am praying thta the num=bers of my kids are less over the next 2 weeks....my next order of bears don't arrive in the country till after the grads,,,,ugh....

My son seems ok today....
Not sure what the other lad is like and not really going to find out...it was him that took to my boy....my boy then went to a fast food outlet and thats where he ended up getting charged so i guess we had 2 different incidents ......the kids are 26 for goodness sake....i really would have thought this other lad woul have stared learning by now.....however he is renown for his temper.....

I am taking it in my stride as there is not a lot I can do....
my DS has just rung me tonight to tell me that one of the windows in the front of the house has been broken something we thought we had checked when I was there on friday however didn't see it....we will get it fixed and also the letterbox then i will send a bill to the other lad for payment.....
lol....will be interesting if he pays it....lol

anyways....am off to bed....am really tired and have to be up at 6.30 in the morning....
Thankyou all for your prayers....
Blessings

FRIDAY AGAIN

Friday, May 04, 2012

Hard to believe it is Friday again already.....
Having said that part of me is pleased it is...

Have a double greaduation tomorrow so that will keep me occupied for the most part of the day.....

Took DS this morning to get a pair of steel toecapped boots ready for work on Monday to discover that he had been arrested last night and is being charged with assault.....don't think he can remember much about it however had been drinking with some friends one of whom bashed him up....a real friend is this lad....
He ended up in emergency as the police Dr sent him there and the police took him back home....he has staples in the back of his head...a very sore jaw and also concussion....
I have told him to get rid of this friend and hopefully he has listened this time.....
I am trusting god that this won't ruin his chances of the job he is trialing for next week.....
He was gutted about it this morning however no matter the fact that his mate bashed him did not excuse him for his behaviour after that although I do question whether he was fully conscious....all good...I am sure it will work out...just gotta trust God....

Am off to byes....
Night everyone

    I'm so sorry Lyn, it's these times when we hang on to the Promises of God and trust Him with our kids knowing that God has all things under His control, during these sets of circumstances you have shared here it sure is hard for we Mom's to let go and let God, I stand with you Lyn and will be praying along with you for the situation, I hope your son is alright and he recovers completely from his injuries, here's hoping it is a lesson he learns and takes to heart so he doesn't get into a similar situation again. I too pray that it doesn't interfere with his new job next week... Love & Hugs... emoticon emoticon

    Lyn, so sorry to hear about the injuries to your son! It's true that kids have to make their own choices and thus learn from them. As parents we let them make those choices and are there for them. Praying for both of you and also that he gets the job he is applying for. emoticon

    Oh Lyn, I am so sorry to hear this.
Is DS ok? this sounds terrible!
What shape is his 'friend' in?
If he is worse off, how is it he is being charged? Does not sound right my friend.
Prayers to you and your DS.
Hugs,
Angela

    So sorry Lyn! These kids just plain wear us out sometimes.

For a mom it's hard to readjust the thinking to "this is God's person and He's working His plan" when stuff like this happens.

Hang in there!
