Some decisions are harder than others

Sometimes I wonder how are actions and decisions are interpreted by our children. Sometimes I'm surprised by how they read things. In most cases, only time will tell.

Here are some decisions/activities that have gone down this week:
Monday - worked until I went to bed to pull together a strategy for my team in my new role.
Tuesday - Band concert/Subway sandwiches for late dinner.
Wednesday - Bible studies (2). Late dinner.
Thursday - Family night. Shopping & dinner out.
Friday - me home alone. Hubby at AC/DC concert. Me finishing laundry, packing, decorating Christmas tree, getting myself ready to leave in the morning for trip to Syracuse, NY. Yes, we're finally getting to see our oldest grandson. We haven't seen him in a year. He is more important to me than AC/DC. I had to make the decision, and it weighed on me all week. Free tickets given to us by a friend. My darling husband did call me during the last song at the AC/DC concert so I got to hear the last tune and it felt good to know he was thinking of me.

I can't look back on my week and point at anything that I would have sacrificed in order to go to the concert. I haven't had any goof-off time (since Sunday's foray to the park). I try to live my life without regrets, but sometimes that requires tough choices. Accepting the consequences.

Our youngest is staying with friends from church. He isn't able to join us in NY because he didn't keep his grades up so he can't afford to miss 2 days of school. Tough choices. Accepting the consequences.

Peace,

Sounds like all is right with the (your) world to me. Have a safe trip. Sending angels to guide you, er, asking them to. (I really have no charge of them!)
