Ahoy Mateys! This here be me MONDAY MOOD SWING post. 



Today's MOOD be.......MIXED EMOTIONS 

This be me, Chaplain Debbie, wit' me grandson, Pirate Lucas. (aka Pooh Bear) Lucas will be turning 5 years old this July. He is me first grandchild and we be very close. 

As the Tin Man said to Dorothy, "I know I have a heart, because it's breaking."  My SIL Ryan, daughter Debra Dawn and Lucas will be moving to Idaho this Saturday. It could be over a year before I will be able to hug my Pooh Bear again. 

I know that this is something that has to happen and (in a way) I am happy for their new adventure. I am grateful that they will not be alone in Idaho; Ryan's parents live there and they will be staying with them for awhile. I simply adore the Smith's and I know that they will take good care of my daughter and Lucas. I had 5 fantastic years with Pooh Bear, so now it's time for Brent and Becky(his Grandma and Papa) to have him for awhile. I am thankful that he is old enough to remember me....not that I would ever let him forget me. 


Even though I will not be able to physically touch Lucas, there are ways that we can keep in touch. Skyping, texting, videos, Facebook, letters..........and whatever else I can come up with! (Quick! Someone invent a portal between states, now!)

Only time will heal my hurting heart and I know that with God's help I will be able to do let him go and have a wonderful time in Idaho......IDAHO!!! 


So, be praying for Ryan, Debra Dawn and Lucas as they travel to Idaho and start their new life.

And pray for me............for everything!!!!

That be me MONDAY MOOD SWING, Mateys! Thanks fer comin' aboard! God bless.
