Where are those darn things?!
Maybe THAT’s why I can’t pull myself together.
The husband, literally on the OTHER. SIDE. OF. THE. WORLD!
Quiet and lonely has what this week has been.
Oh. And sickly. THAT’s always fun.
And nothing like getting the news this morning
of him needing to stay longer.
The husband leaves, we crumble.
And I’m pathetic.
It’s not like he is on vacation or anything.
He’s WORKING. And I’m pitiful.
I’ve got to find those bootstraps
so I can yank ‘em up, wipe the sad eyes away,
and get it together.
Possible?! Just maybe.
encouragement that I needed -
fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Hitting just the right spot.
Ahh, let’s just savor those words for a few minutes!
And then…..and THEN
as I was going about the rest of my work day,
minding my own business,
I get my first real LIVE phone call from my sweet man.
I had to quickly yank those bootstraps up
and clear the sadness out of my voice
so that I could hear his.
Now, surely we can do this.
