There's been several times I have left after being with her and thought man did I mess that time up Lord, I'm sorry I didn't even make sure we took time to pray before we ran out of time. Well guess what she gave me this great Christmas present and it is an awesome prayer journal called "The Busy Grandma's Guide to prayer" by Lisa Whelchel & Gentry Coleman and this has helped me realize that I'm not done being a mom because my children still need me to cover them in prayer as they raise their own children, my grandchildren! First I pray for myself, in this journal, then my adult children, then my grandchildren, then my grandchildren's future, then my grandchildren's character, then the children of the world. It is amazing how I'm still needed in my adult children's life.
She also wrote me a letter and stuck it inside the book, one thing that stuck out to me was this little part right here. Robin, I hope you aren't mad that I'm sharing online with everyone. "God knew I needed somebody to laugh with and cry with - and laugh till I cry with - and He sent me You!" Does God know what he is doing, of course, she needed me and I needed her, and I'm very greatful for my accountability partner, she has taught me I will always be a mom but now I'M A GRANDMA! Now she just needs to help me pray that maybe some day I can be a close by grandma instead of a long distance grandma. I have 3 grandchildren 500 miles away and 1 grandchild 1000 miles away. By the way Robin why weren't you here crying with me when I kissed Dylan goodbye. (He's the 7 month old that lives 1000 miles away from me.) I needed you big time that day! Just kidding, my sweet hubby held me that day, I think he was crying a few too, but he wouldn't let me see them.
