I'm still eager to share my fourth with you but I'll put it off one more day. I just want to thank everyone for being so amazing, clairvoyant, empathetic, loving, in fact you're just plain smart! I'm still exhausted and out of sorts, but God is so good and so are His people!!
I don't quite understand why misery loves company, but I think I got a bit of insight. It's not that I want anyone else to be miserable... it's just comforting to know that you are not alone. It's like every single one of you knew what I was feeling. You all said different things and yet you were all right on!
When I woke up this morning I was still so tired. The day that stretched ahead of me was overwhelming. By rights I should have been doing post holiday laundry... I had done a pretty thorough job cleaning yesterday so I decided to do what sounded most relaxing.
The reservoir is just 15 miles from the house. The girls invited friends. I didn't. If you've been paying attention (which I know you have) that was an unnatural move on my part. The only friends for me on this trip were my current read, a cooler full of ice water and a comfy lawn chair.
I'm not any better yet, but the day was good which is more than I expected. I covet your prayers and advice and am taking them to bed with me now. Tomorrow is another day... goodnight sweet friends.
