The Good Life!
Here is hoping that all the mothers of the world are able to be with their children today.
We had a wonderful weekend! Me, Andy, Riley and Eden headed to Dayton to spend a few days with Andy’s Family. We celebrated Bonnie’s Birthday and Bonnie and Vaughn’s Anniversary and of course Mothers day. Andy’s Grandmother was visiting from (BOOOO) Michigan so the house was all booked up which gave us the opportunity to stay at a hotel so the kids could swim and boy did they. We practically had to drag Eden from the pool but of course she was practicing her backstroke!! We were not at all pleased with the hotel on Friday night so Sat we packed up and looked for a new one and went to many before we found one with an indoor pool that allowed pets (of course we wouldn’t go anywhere without our beloved Sophie and Cane) and later it became apparent we were being guided to this hotel by a higher power. Which I will explain in a minute. Andy’s family are all very musical and his Mom and Dad spend their Sat nights helping out at a little Coffee house in Troy OH called Nightsky. Vaughn has locals who come in and share their talents every Sat and the place is always packed. So we went up to enjoy an evening of Music, food and family games and Vaughn asked Eden if she would like to sing something and OF COURSE she did! So they went up and Eden sang Twinkle Twinkle and a very cute song Vaughn taught her which I am not sure even has a name and goes something like this……… Old Mother Hubbard went to her cupboard to get her daughter a dress, when she got there the cupboard was bare and so was the daughter…..I guess??............ Very Very cute and Eden LOVED singing in front of everyone. So after that we all headed back to the hotel for a swim and when we walked in met a very lovely women sitting in the hot tub and very soon her husband joined us. Well after a few minutes of talking it turns out he was a minister (Vaughn was a minister for many years) so they started to talk about many different things and it was very enjoyable to listen in on the conversation but it was late and Eden was done so we started to head for the room and the Women asked if we would gather to pray for Eden… And of course I never turn that down, so right there in the hot tub we all held hands and prayed for Eden and it was a very moving and powerful experience and Eden was very touched by the whole thing. After that the four of them began to sing and it was the most wonderful thing I have ever heard!!! Before we left they told us that they had been staying at another hotel and moved because they were not happy with it and thinking back to our move we all felt it was Devine intervention. What more can I say but THANK YOU GOD for giving me more then I could ever ask for on this mother’s day
