Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

Another Countdown So Soon?

Things have settled down into a new routine without Jordan around.  As I was just getting used to her being away, Seth got the phone call that I was not expecting.  His ship date has been moved up from July to June; over a whole month early.  He leaves in 17 days.  I wasn't prepared for the emotional roller coaster of his departure.  The news was quite sudden.  One minute we are all heading home from the pool.  The next minute he calls to say he is on his way to the station to sign his papers of departure.  That fast.

I'm happy for him; sad for me.  It seems to be the theme of my life lately.  With so many emotional things going on in my life at the moment, it's a wonder I'm still somewhat sane.


I'm asking for prayers for my big kiddos.  Seth seems so young to me to be thrown into adult situations so quickly.  But, he has wanted this for so long.  I've not heard from Jordan yet; still anxiously waiting for that letter or phone call.

Ah, Cheri! My heart aches for you! A whole month early would leave anyone unprepared and emotional! I have no words of wisdom, just sending warm thoughts and prayers to the One who does!

Eva

Wow, moved up a whole month?! That's so soon. I bet your head is swirling. I will be praying for both your big kids. And I do hope you hear from Jordan soon.

Naomi

Oh I really cannot imagine. You must give yourself time to grieve and adjust. I have heard it is one of the hardest things to go through. I know you still have precious little ones at home but it will not take away from your yearning for the older two. I will pray for them and you that comfort will flow from Jesus and help you during this difficult time of transition.

Before you know it, they will be back with stacks of laundry!!!

love to you,
Naomi

Cheri...I want you to know that the night before Jordan left, I laid in bed praying for you and my heart wad so moved for you that I cried. God loves you and holds you.....and He holds those kiddos to. I will continue in prayer.

Oh, Cheri! I will continue to pray for you as you go through all these transitions and losses of sorts. Will be praying for those big kids of yours, too!

Will pray for your peace. Our kids growing up can be such a mixed blessing as parents when it comes to letting go, there's joy and sadness/concern.
