I have just gotten home from an AMAZING weekend with my Mother and Son! We spent this beautiful weekend in Monterey. I don't even know where to begin.... when we got to the place we were staying (this beautiful B&B) we were late so they left us a note and some keys. We went in and got unpacked and got comfortable in our beautiful room. The weekend just kept getting better. We had two days at the aquarium including a really cool behind the scenes tour. We had two delicious breakfasts at our B&B called the Jabberwok Inn. We had so much fun as a family. I really feel blessed. This weekend came just when I really needed it.
There was this weird feeling I kept having all day that I hadn't called someone important. I was stuck in the back of my head and then all of a sudden I pulled out my phone to call my grandmothers. Both have been gone for a while but it was this sadness that came over me when I realized that I couldn't talk to them. I miss you both so much and I am thankful for all of the time we had together.
I am looking ahead to a full next few weeks. The next big event is going to be the Confirmation of an amazing young man that I have sponsored. He really has become family to me and I am so proud of him. Every time we talk I see how much he has grown in Christ and I feel honored that he chose me to walk this path with him. I can't wait to see him fully initiated in the the Catholic church this Saturday. Keep him and I in your prayers.
Off to bed now. I have a presentation to give tomorrow at work and I don't want this vacation glow to end!
