God Willing

My mom likes to add these two words when we say our goodbyes after a visit, so I’m familiar with hearing it.  For some reason, I never really sat down to think about just how precious these words are. They hold a new meaning for me now much more than goodbyes ever could. I KNOW that God shapes my life and that when someone dies, they don’t really die.  I know how I feel when I kiss my mom and hug my sister and how–with the passage of time-it becomes more meaningful.  But these are graces that God bestows. Likewise, I look back at this year and last year…how so many life-changing events took place leading to newer events and even bigger rewards.  And it’s all because of the Man Upstairs, the Head Hancho, The Big Cheese, Señor Awesome, Mister Perfect, The Great Googly Moogly…G-O-D. Thanks, Lord! (For y’know…EVERYTHING)
