So I Made it Back!!!

Happy Sunday all, I made it back safely from my Texas trip. We had to come in early, because of the storm we thought was going to hit South Carolina. I was devastated, but better safe than sorry. Even though we dodge a bullet, we are still not out of the woods just yet. Sending nothing but prayers and positive vibes to everyone in Florida. So as you may want to know, how did the court case come out for my son? Well I’m excited to say the judge and the prosecutor were more than sympathetic to my him. After reviewing the case and reading all about my sons history, school, family life, jobs, and being a dad, they decided that jail isn’t an option. THANK GOD! Well they will look over some more paperwork and reset another hearing for Oct. 4th, I feel really good that they will convict him, but won’t put him in jail. Now, as a black  young man being a convicted felon, will cause all kinds of trouble for him. On the bright side I don’t have to see him go off to jail, and besides he made his bed, now he has to suffer some consequence. He was really nervous, as was I, my mom and his girlfriend. We just didn’t know what to expect, but his lawyer was damn good and very convincing. I walked out of there, thinking God has not left my side. *sigh* I have had so many bad things happened these past years, I just went in thinking this is out of my control. So my mind was at peace, and I was able to enjoy the rest of the trip.

Now, let’s talk about all the damn cuteness that I was surrounded with! My grandson and his sister are just as adorable as ever. I held him most of the time when I wasn’t fighting my mom for him, lol! He is doing all a lot of smiling and cooing, my heart just melted at the sight of him. I got to feed him, change him, and kiss him to death. He actually slept in the room with us all night, we wanted to give my son them a little break. Kayden was a perfect little angel, he slept all night after we put a little oatmeal in his milk. My mom is really old school and thinks he wasn’t fat enough for her, lol!! My son’s girlfriend insisted we stay with them, and we obliged. I cooked my special company lasagna, and we drank the night away. I had so much fun, just talking, laughing and enjoying the sun sitting on the porch. My son looked so happy, and I all I could do was go in the bathroom and cry. Crying not because I was sad, but happy about something for once. Life was really good in Texas, I needed that vacation and glad I was able to go. We had safe travels and made it back before the storm. Well here are some pics of my little man, on GrandParents Day today, I feel so blessed to have this title. He has really stolen my heart and I can’t wait to spend more time with him and watch him grow!!! Have a great rest of the Sunday!!
