Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

prayer time...

...twins are having a "SWEET 16" birthday party at our house tonight.

...about 30 teenagers

...lots of pizza and wings

...lots of PEPSI products

...bon-fire with hot dogs and smores


...hopefully lots and lots of fun with minimal drama

YES...can you all believe that tomorrow the twins turn 16. now the real fun begins. sometime next week we will head off to PDOT to take the "permit test" and then they hit the roadways.

this was one event (of many events) that i am sad to have to do alone as a single parent. first the prom and then megans "awesome" awards ceremonies and then the twins turning 16 and then megan's graduation ceremony and then her graduation party...lots of emotions hitting this dewalt household in the next few weeks. so badly wishing tim was here to share all this "good" stuff with me. i have a bunch of totally amazing kids who have a bunch of totally amazing friends. life is good. lonely and sad at times and somewhat crazy at times but good.

thanks for checing in

Tammy, I'm sure Tim is very proud of you and the girls and would be very pleased that you are honoring the girls for all their achievements and successes. You are doing an outstanding parenting job for both of you. Keep up the good work!

Many blessings and enjoy!

Hang in!
Tim and you laid the foundation, and it's a strong one.
You can---and will---get through all these occasions/events. And although it's a bittersweet lesson, the girls' head knowledge that "All things are possible with God" will become heart and soul knowledge...proof positive of what you two taught them.

You're not afraid to show your vulnerability as you move ahead with your life...and theirs.
That's truly an example of strength!

Praying for you and the girls and sending love from the West Coast...

I trust all went well with the sweet 16 Bday party. We also thought of Tim this weekend. We were at the NEW Yankee Stadium. Awesome place.... They now sell all Pepsi products. The OLD Stadium sold Coke products. Tim would be so happy!! Give the twins hugs for us. See you soon.
