You're so Wrong

I must admit, I am super excited that Gavin will be coming home in just one day!  He'll be picked up by his amazing Grandparents tomorrow at 1pm and driven home for the holidays.  He wants to surprise us; though I am sure he must know that we know he's coming home & when, since his commanding officer sends the parents letters with such information!

I am so proud of my children.  How lucky am I to have children that are out there living in this world on their own, being successful & making a difference.  It's funny because along the way, I would hear negative remarks from my dad or one of my brothers about how they would never amount to anything, or how someone else would be so much more then they would-since they didn't receive accommodations and scholarships when graduating High School!  What they said never held weight with me, because will looking at their lives I figured anything would be better, even just working at the local dollar general.....sort of like "consider the source" type of thinking.  But still, it's unnerving sometimes when people who say they "love you" or "care for you" seem to be your worst critics.  Well, take a look.  Take a look at them kids/adults now.  Yum Yum Crow!!!

The moral of this story is, don't read the book by the cover.  Don't assume you know more then you truly do.  I have watched a lot of people eat crow in the past few years & it's pretty amazing to sit back and be like "I told you so!!!"  <3
