Time to Spring it on..........

Thank you all for your kind comments.  I hope to be able to respond to them soon.  The service was today.  So many tears.  I want to tell you about it but I'll have to wait.  It's a little to soon for me.  Our son did better than we did.  There are so things about the service that I will talk about later.
To lighten up a little I have to tell you this story.
Yesterday I took our son to get some clothes.  It's so hard as he's a big boy and he isn't very tall.  But we managed to find some dress pants, white shirt and new shoes.  I brought the pants home to hem them.  This morning,  I asked my husband where he put the pants.  He said, "They are in my closet."  So this morning I spent about two hours hemming them.  I am not a sewer and they had a cuff.  I wasn't sure how to do that.
Our son came here to get ready.  He went to put his pants on........I could here him from downstairs, "Did Mom wash my pants."   Next thing I knew that the pants weren't fitting.  I hadn't seen him try them on but he said they were too tight.  Well, he got in them but wasn't happy.
Now, Hubby gets ready.  He comes out of the bedroom looking all over for his pants that are part of the suit he is wearing.  He can't figure out where they went.  All of a sudden I said, " OMG, did I hem your pants instead of Chris's".  Yep, I did.  Well it wasn't funny then.  I had to hurry and rip out all the stitches.  Trust me it was a mess getting it all out.  No one was laughing.  But Chris was happy because his new pants fit him so much better than his Dad's had fit.  We still made it to the chapel on time, barely.  We had some much needed laughs later about it.
After church tomorrow I am going to do something "Springy".  It's time......time is a funny thing, it just keeps on ticking away .

I'm glad you could find humor in your pant-switch story. You all need some time to heal and laughter is such good therapy. Thinking of you.

Oh my Debby, this is so funny, a good story to laugh about after the fact but I bet it wasn't funny at the time.
Sometime stress can make us do things that we wouldn't normally.

Glad it all worked out in the end. Thanks for sharing this.
Hugs,

At a later day, the pants story will become a fun family story to share.

Laughter can be one of the best antidotes for grief. xo Laura

LOL! I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time, but it's good to laugh about it after the fact!

Debby, I am glad you were able to see a little bit of humor in the pants mix-up. I'm so sorry for what you and your family, and especially your son, are going through. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and I'm so glad you found a church that was comforting. All my best to you and yours,
Donna
