Today I'm having a bittersweet tea party for myself. My firstborn grandchild is off to Marine Boot Camp. The little soldier on the plate, was a reminder for everyone to take one and say a prayer for Connor when they looked at it at home.
I'll be praying for this child as I always have even before he was born.
My daughter had the best farewell party for Connor!! She has such a knack for planning parties and I think it was a very cathartic experience for her to do this for him.
She had this beautiful prayer posted.
Guess who made the beautiful cake?? Cissy did, of course!!
Here's the inside of the pretty three layer cake. The canteen holder on the left belonged to my late beloved, when he was in the Army Reserves.
Aren't these decorated cookies so pretty?
Here's my daughter with her four kids, at the end of the evening. Please pray for my daughter as this has been such an emotional journey for her. She gets on scripted phone call from him when he get to boot camp, and then can't talk to him for 13 weeks.
Now I'm crying as I type this, thinking of my grandson with pride, but also sad that he is leaving. May God watch over this fine young man.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
