If it weren't for my paralyzing fear of being home alone at night, the trip would have gone great. But as it was, I found myself going from vomit clean up duty to clenching a louisville slugger and back again until 4:00 am one night. The one verse that brought me peace all week, Psalm 4:8 In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone oh Lord make me dwell in safety. Clearly I have some work to do in the fear area. I don't know how all these Mommies with traveling husbands or military wives do it. I have the upmost respect for them. My bed buddies during Africa week were my sick son, the bible and my phone. And sometimes the slugger.
How do your survive when one side of your bed lies empty? xo
