So I have had a lot of time to myself lately. Jeremy has been gone to Congo for work. I have been enjoying lots of reading and relaxing in the evenings. But I have also been a single parent, which is NOT easy. We have done so well this time. This is his 4th trip. I am counting down the days, but trying to be positive and look to what I can gain from this time apart.
I went shopping yesterday and found this journal. How is it that things are put before you just when you need it most? My goal is to fill one page a day with all I am grateful for in my life at that moment.
We have been making way too many cookies since Jeremy has been gone. But we have so enjoyed them! I think the kids have the recipe memorized.
I had to tease Jeremy while he was gone. I told him I cut my hair. He loves my hair long. So I had to ruffle some feathers and told him I cut it. So of course he wanted a picture. So I sent him this.....
He believed it. Then he asked for another one and wanted to see a better view. Well that is when my cover was blown. So I sent him this so he could dry his tears.
He did say he loved me no matter who long my hair was.
I miss him. Home is not the same without him. There is something wonderful about a husband and having the priesthood in your home. You can feel the difference when they are gone. I am just grateful for such a hard worker and provider. I can't imagine leaving my family and comforts of home like he does. We sure do love him and miss him!
