Before you read this post I want to be clear I am usually a pretty private person as I process things and then announce what happens next.
This time I felt the need to document while it happens. It seems all over the place because it is. My heart is racing and my mind is still in awe.
A few weeks ago my friend called me about her winning a dinner from work and wanted me to be her plus one.
Honestly it was a little weird because we had never done that before – the whole go out to eat without our kids thing. When she told me the date we had to go was December 23rd I began to think something else was up.
Time passed and I put it on the back of my mind. I went on like nothing was happening. Shortly after she and I had this call my son began expressing an extreme missing of great grandfather. Ok – this is weird too.
My son began day after day crying or suggesting that he missed great grandfather. He told my mom about it and it kind of went on and on. What is up with that?
Alright so more time past and my friend called me while I was shopping at target. She asked if I got my son all the gifts I wanted and she began going on and on and finally told me there was this guy that she wanted to have bless me with gifts for my son. Shortly after saying that she then said oh by the way the dinner thing is this thing.
My brain literally was on overload. So wait there is a guy that doesn’t know me that wants to give my son a Christmas that I can’t, and Kelly is the vessel on which God chose to use.
Here we are today is December 23, 2018 it’s my grandfather’s birthday. He passed away a handful of years ago and this year it seems to sting a little bit more than usual. With everything going on I can’t help but think somehow he is sitting in heaven wanting me to know that the past month and a half of pain isn’t in vein. That I am loved and God sees me.
I don’t know I can only speculate while I sit in the mysterious target and wait for Kelly to come back with a mysterious person to make this happen.
I don’t know what God is up to but I am grateful.
Thanks for reading. Look forward to sharing the end soon.
