Today really stinks. For lack of any better or more eloquent words, it just really stinks. My heart felt like a heavy brick in my chest, I lost another loved one to the AIRPORT. Today, the girls and I dropped Joe (aka Daddy) off at the airport. He is heading out to California to work a catering gig in Santa Barbara. He will be away for 9 days. We are alone in PA. It is 17 degrees outside and snow is covering my grass. Just to give you some perspective, I had a double shot from Starbucks yesterday, and I threw my plastic cup in our garbage outside. As I was rolling the bins down to the curb (it's trash day...holla) I caught a sneak peak inside, and yes ladies and gentlemen the ice in my starbucks cup (from yesterday) had not melted. Jeez Joe, you are the only thing I actually like about PA (not all the time, sometimes I am happy about the hoagies too).
I know that God is in this situation, as he is in every situation that we encounter. God will show me during this time of being away from my favorite person in the whole wide world, that he is really all we need. Really, God is all we need, he is our provider, our guide, our love...he is everything. I pray that God will protect Joe, and be with him as he is in Cali. I pray that I am able to sleep, because I usually cannot whenever Joe isn't here. Pray that my girls are ok....just keep us in your prayers.
