A Busy Week

Taken a couple of weeks ago when he left for the first time.

I had thought that I would post about an exciting "Reunited And It Feels So Good" weekend, but I'm not feeling it. We were reunited and it did feel so good, but I'm just feeling really lazy. I seem to have phase 2 of some sort of respiratory bug that didn't complete it's full realm of making me feel bad last week and Big Daddy has left again.

We were able to spend all of Saturday and Sunday as a family. This morning we had a few things to take care of and then we had an early lunch out and then watched Big Daddy get in his car to drive away. I know the sound that a little girl's heart makes when it breaks and it ain't a good sound...at all. Maggie did the ugly cry and then I started crying too. Big Daddy stopped the car and gave Maggie another hug and then we drove away and said a prayer for all of us. I drove straight to get gas and Maggie had made a full recovery as I stood outside of her window and we read each other's lips. We went to Nana's house and made rice crispy treats and then came home for rest time. Both girls are sleeping and I'm about to drink a nice, hot cup of coffee.

And try to return to what is our normal for the time being.

And pray for Big Daddy to arrive to his destination safely.

And count the days until we are together as a family of four again.

And wait for emails, phone calls and text messages from my sweet.

And pray for all of this to end the way that it's supposed to...soon, please.

Hoping this is over soon but until then, enjoy every moment y'all have together. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, ya know!

That is so sad! We need news...is it ending soon? That is super tragically sad! And it is hard to be sick AND be a Mom. It is the hardest of ALL!
