A Lonely Week Ahead
You would think that after 10 years of marriage, one would be perfectly fine with their spouse's departure for a few days......well, I am not that spouse! I hate to be alone and rely so much on Brandon, that this next week is going to be a hard one. Brandon will leave on Saturday to attend a few meetings and the annual football camp in Dwight, IL. I am happy for him that he will be reporting to some new churches, as well as, seeing many supporting pastors, happy that he will get to see old friends and make new ones, happy that he will get some "guy" time. But even though I am happy in all of these areas, I am sad that I will not have him here with me! To watch him tuck the girls in at night, to watch him pray with Kofee as he puts him to bed, to snuggle me after a long day of hard work! All things, of course, happen for a reason. Maybe I will not take him for granted and learn to do a few things on my own. The old saying goes like this..."absence makes the heart grow fonder". It will be good for us to be apart, for our appreciation and love for each other to grow even deeper; but I will miss that man of mine sooo much!!
