God works in mysterious ways....

Well, it's a beautiful day here where I live. Our town fireworks are tonight and the sweetie man and I will be heading on to town (3 blocks away) for a little jaunt through the festivities and a car cruise.
But I did want to tell you all something that happened in the past few days. If you read my blog a day ago, you knew the story of my son's grandpap passing away. (my ex's dad) Well, thanks to all your prayers to the "Man Upstairs", there has been a reconciliation of sorts between my ex MIL and myself. My son came home from the first viewing at the funeral home (which I hadn't planned on going at all too due to circumstances from the divorce so to speak), and he said the his grandmother was asking when I would be coming up to the funeral home. I really had not thought she would have wanted me there at all. I did end up going yesterday. When I walked in, I hugged my ex (no problem) and then I hugged my ex MIL. I told her let's let the past be the past. She nodded, we talked....I told her that anything she needs, I'm there for her....rides, grocery shopping, whatever. She wanted me to sit and talk with her and we did. Just nice talking. It was....really a good moment. I went to the funeral mass today which I was told by my son who was a pallbearer that she was appreciative of it. And today, sweetie man and spaghetti for dinner making alot extra so that my son could take an entire meal of salad, bread, homemade spaghetti, and dessert for my ex and my son't grandmother (aka my ex MIL).
So, even tho my blog today had no pictures and I didn't talk about what I'm working on, I just wanted to thank you all again for your prayers and your thoughts.....because miracles do happen and God does work in mysterious ways. Till tomorrow.....
