WONDERFUL NEWS!

I HAVE SOME WONDERFUL NEWS!.........

ON FRIDAY, JIMMY GOT UP AS USUAL AT 3AM, AND WENT TO HIS JOB IN THE KITCHEN TO COOK......HE WAS TO  COOK EGGS AND HASH FOR 200 MEN, THAT DAY........

WHEN HIS CO-WORKERS SAW HIM THERE AT 3AM, THEY SAUD, 'JIMMY, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE TODAY?  YOUR NAME IS ON THE BULLITIN BOARD, AND YOU ARE TO MEET WITH THE PAROLE  OFFICER AT 8AM.....TODAY.

JIMMY WAS SURPRISED AND SHOCKED!.....THE DAY HAD FINALLY ARRIVED!.....THE DAY WE WERE BOTH QUIETLY WAITING FOR.......JIMMY IS THE TYPE OF PERSON TO EMERGE HIMSELF IN HARD WORK........TO LET TIME PASS ON IT'S OWN, WITHOUT COUNTING THE MINUTES AND DAYS.........

SO, ON THAT WONDERFUL DAY, JIMMY COULD HAVE GONE BACK TO BED AND SLEEP A FEW MORE HOURS, BUT HE CHOSE TO CONTINUE TO COOK ..................AND THEN AT 6:30 AM, HE LEFT THE KITCHEN, WENT AND TOOK A SHOWER, AND WAS BROUGHT IN FRONT OF THE PAROLE OFFICER FOR AN INTERVIEW......IT WAS NOT IN PERSON, BUT TOOK PLACE ON A TV SCREEN.

THIS WAS THE INTERVIEW BEFORE HE GOES TO THE PAROLE BOARD......THAT MEANS IN AROUND 2 WEEKS (TENTATIVE TIME), AND THEY WILL DECIDE IF HE CAN COME HOME...............DARE I SAY THOSE WORDS?!.........YES, "COME HOME."

JIMMY WAS TOLD HE WAS APPROVED TO WEAR THE METAL DETECTOR BRACELET AROUND HIS ANKLE, SO THAT IS ALSO GOOD NEWS!

I HOPE YOU WILL ALL SHARE MY HAPPINESS WITH ME.........HOWEVER, I MUST REMIND YOU, AT THIS POINT, IT IS LIKE "WALKING ON EGGSHELLS.".....IS THAT HOW THE SAYING GOES?....OR IS IT "GLASS?"

.....AND SO, WITH GOD IN MY HEART, AND THE WORDS, "PEACE , BALANCE AND HARMONY,"   I WILL CONTINUE ON............

..............................................................LOVE, FRAN

Fran, that's great news....I feel your excitment as well.  My husband goes up before the parole board in 3 weeks - after 5 long years in prison - 3 weeks...it boggles the mind to think that he might (dare I say it) might be home in time for Christmas.  Our 4 yr old isn't phased by it...she's like,"Daddy might be home for Christmas......or he might be home in April.."  I wish I could be as calm and accepting of whatever God hands us to deal with...I guess I could learn a lesson or two from her.  Anyway, good luck to ya'll and I hope all turns out well for you both...Janet
