He called. Im off.


Just sitting by the phone and waiting
waiting for it to ring

Checking my email every ten minutes
Craft ideas from a magazine
a few FaceBook messages from friends wanting to know
"Has he called yet?"
No news

The phone!
Is it him?
Nope, it's GrammaJ
I love her, but she' not who I'm waiting for
so keep it short
Because I'm waiting

I don't know when
I don't know where
I'm supposed to pick him up
But it'll be soon
And it'll be near(ish)
'Til he calls, it's all a mystery

Gotta stay busy
Make cookies
Check email
Clean the bathroom
Take the phone with me
"just in case"
Teach some school
Log on to FaceBook

I'm just waiting

Waiting is hard, but what a precious thing you are waiting for!!! Reminds me of us waiting to hear the trump of God!!! The waiting is worth is because of the reward. Bless you and him, Groovy.

So glad the wait is over and your son and your family are once again together. Have a lovely visit.
