Is It Over?

Sometimes we look forward to something and then when it gets here it’s not what we thought.  Like winter.  When it is so blazing hot I am truly wishing for winter.  I love snow, I love to decorate for Christmas, I love sitting by the fire, I really like sweater weather.

That’s a funny name sweater weather–but you know what I mean.  I like the coolness of winter but when it really rolls around and the coolness changes into the harsh reality of COLD, I don’t like it.  I am just fickle. Now I am wondering is winter over yet?

Last week I was so looking forward to visiting our kids in Kansas.  The minute we walked in the door our Jenna girl announced that she was going back home with us.  She has so been looking forward to it and so have we.  Yesterday was the day to come  home and we all held our breath wondering if she would really go though with it.  She did!

I sure hope she doesn’t have the same experience I have with the weather–looking forward to it and then disappointed with the out come.  Last night she wanted company for supper and wanted to eat fried egg sandwiches and ice cream.  So we did exactly that.  Today she wants to go to the Children’s Museum and eat at Valentino’s and guess what?  We are doing exactly that.  This morning she wants more eggs for breakfast and that’s what she is having.  LOL  On the way home we stopped for fuel and I asked her if she needed some chocolate, she said she did and then informed me her mom would probably fire me for letting her have chocolate.  LOL  She just now came to me and said, “so far I am having fun, so I think I will have to come more often.”  Makes a grandma’s heart sing.

Disappointment in life is not a fun thing but it is all around us.  Try as I will to make Jenna’s stay perfect I know it won’t be.  Do we have to get use to expecting disappointment? IDK  I do know there will be no disappointment in heaven–and that is for sure.
