This has been a great weekend. Mikhael and I got to have some time talking last night and it was really great. He has really enjoyed hearing how he is like so-and-so in my family, and where he got some of his traits & characteristics. He is a Starbucks fiend, has a sarcastic sense of humor, keeps reminding me he is taller than me (which both of my brothers used to do on a regular basis), and when he was rounding out of the kitchen as I was walking into it this morning, I had that distinct feeling again that I was looking into a mirror.
I am VERY blessed to have been a part of Mikhael’s life, even from a distance. And now that I have been invited to share it up close & personal, I feel grateful & humbled & honored. I also have a husband who has been very supportive and loving and has been a strength for me. Now we have a daughter, who can grow up and know her big brother because of the generosity of several hearts.
We are already discussing our next visit and when we can get together again. Mikhael would really like to meet my family, and I hope it is something we can all work out.
I love Mikhael Shane so much, and feel almost like we were never apart in some ways. I am glad he was willing to meet me and wants me to be part of his life. Cyndi & Darrel have been so hospitable and warm and welcoming, and well, Southern. I think I’ve gained 7 or 8 lbs and enjoyed every second of it. =) We can’t hug enough, we can’t share enough. I am very blessed.
It’s time to head to the airport, so I will sign off now. I thank God for what He has given me.
