Half Way There
We are half way through this trip. 105 days is a very long time to be apart. Though I am so thankful that we are not doing this for a straight year. I feel like our family and each member in it has stretched to new heights, accomplished new things and suffered in various ways. I have found myself doing things I never thought I could, yet I have learned that I need to learn to take time to rest. It is hard to do that while wearing 50 hats. I can say, I am not near as good as a daddy, carpenter, or wrestler as david. I constantly have to remind him that when he leaves our world spins a different direction. Typically the kids save their illnesses for this time, and my body starts to fall apart. It is such a reminder for me that I need to remember who is in control and let go so God can do his work. If anything, I think that is what God needs me to learn from these trips. Let go, Let God. Apparently I am a slow learner, but I am coming around. It only has taken 4 trips! As I sit here, missing my husband and longing for my family to be a whole unit again, I am encouraged and thankful for all that I have. Counting down the days until it's back together!
