Today I took the babies for their weekly visits to see their parents. One daughter is in jail, so couldn't see her son, so I had to keep him with me during the other 2 grand-kids visit. I felt bad for him but what could I do. I refuse to bail her out cause I cant afford it and also I think she needs to sit and learn a lesson and rethink her priorities and find her way back to God. I was surprised however, that the other daughter actually showed up to see her babies as she has only made it to 2 visits in 6months. It was nice to see actually see and know that to a point, she is ok, which I really needed to see. She is my daughter after all, no matter how much she is struggling and messing up, so I still worry. I had been wondering all morning what I was going to do today while I waited for kiddos to visit with their dad. I usually use that time to do some grocery shopping as that is a lot easier to do alone then with 3 young kids in tow. However I did not receive my check yet, so I was worried about how I would provide diapers etc for the babies with no money. My loving God heard my fears and prayers and my cell phone rang. My mom, who is such an awesome woman, called ma and said my parents and discussed my problems and decided it was best if they stepped in to help with the babies. At first, I fought the idea telling my mom it was a great idea but as I was a grown woman raising my grand kids, it was no longer her job to support me. Of course my mom scolded me like a little girl and told me to shut up listen to her, come pick her up and lets get the babies their stuff. I being the obedient daughter because I would never dream of not listening to my mother, not a great idea. went and got her during kiddos visit. She took me shopping and got all the basic necessities I needed and a few extras because her babies needed stuff that they liked also like lucky charms etc. lol. My mom is too cute and too good to me. During our trip, we talked a lot about God and how He works in His own way and His own time. She said He knew I needed help and since I'm stubborn at asking for help she was the best solution He could offer me. It also gave us some good quality mom and daughter time , which we don't get much of these days with the little ones around. That was great in itself and I needed it. I gave her loving hug and kiss and thanked her a lot and then we prayed for an awesome God who once again showed us that help comes when we need it most.
