Justin and I are going on our first vacation sans children in a couple of weeks. It’s a work conference for myself, but we are adding a day so that we can spend some quality time together. It will be a great way to strengthen our marriage.
We haven’t left the kids yet, but for a night away here and there. Link tells me he misses me when I leave his room at night! How will he handle 5 days? And sweet Eloise, who doesn’t sleep… what will she do when she can’t snuggle with mommy all night?
I know they will be fine. But I worry – I am a worrier. It will be so good for Justin and I, and it will be great for Link to learn that we leave AND come back.
I did get my will finalized, so if we end up in the Indian Ocean or anything, the kids are protected. I didn’t put a directive for Alabaster – so hopefully someone will take him.
All this being said, God has us in His hands. We will all be safe, and loved, and protected. But say a prayer for us anyway… please.
