Here are a few little things that I learned this weekend:
1. I think I've never appreciated my husband more. He was my rock while I was gone. Eliza was the sickest she's ever been the night before I was scheduled to leave and I almost canceled. He reassured me that it would be fine and that he would hold down the fort just fine. On the way there, I started feeling terribly sick and after being in the car for almost 2 hours, I called him and told him that I thought I couldn't do it. He reassured me that yes, he would come get me if I really needed him, but that he and the kids were praying for me and that I'd be okay. Moments later I got a voicemail with the kids praying for me. I was a mess of nerves and he gently pushed me to go, because he knew I needed it. And the kids??? Well, they held up just fine, especially while they played "mud pie". I'm still doing laundry, but these faces are worth it.
I am a masterpiece of personality, intellect, emotion, skill, talent, experience and supernatural gifting meant to spread benefits of heaven to people on earth.And---YOU are too.
