The Five of Us, Spring 2014

Missing him

I miss him. I just miss Pence today. Most of the time, this is just a low-level almost subconscious longing for him to come home, but this morning, it's particularly strong. I don't know if it's hormones or stress or lack of news or what.

But, I'm leaving for a women's retreat through my church in a few minutes--a retreat I'm helping to lead. I'd like to just sit here and cry it out, but it's not really an option today. So, would you pray for me this weekend? Thanks. I'll be back on Monday and I'll update you as soon as I can.

I really am looking forward to the retreat. Should be good times! TTFN! (hee hee--I think I'm so cute when I use the teenagerish acronyms!)

TTFN is from Tigger you nerdy. You have been reading too many little kiddo books.
I understand missing a babe you have never held. I will be praying for you and acceptance of God's plans. I know God will use you mightily this weekend. Lot of love.

I understand how you feel. Some morning I wake up and look at a picture of Isaac and just cry, because I miss him so much. I will keep you in my prayers and in my heart...

Talk To Me

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at Much obliged, I'm sure.
