The Praying--it Helps!

I must begin by thanking each and every one of you who have been praying for Trevor's early return to us from his trip to China. I have received so many emails and comments that have encouraged me to persevere while he's been gone, and hope that he will come home soon.

The prayers? Well, they've been answered. I received word yesterday that he will be flying in on Friday. FRIDAY! My window for cleaning the house, changing the sheets and preparing a menu is rapidly closing. Please don't mistake this for complaining....I am overjoyed to be worrying about these things, and having so much to do will keep my evenings busy. Busy is good because the time tends to fly, and I am anxious to see his handsome face again and feel his strong embrace. Did I mention that he will be home for our 11th anniversary now?

I can tell that the kids are really starting to miss him. Nathan came to my bedside in tears at 3 am, retelling a nightmare that he had about a bee hurting Daddy. I let him crawl into Trevor's spot and finish the night out with me since he was so upset. The first thing he said to me when we woke up was, "Do you think Daddy is ok?" He was still worried that his dream was real. I reassured him that Daddy was just fine, and that he would be home soon.

Gracie told me that she dreamed that Daddy came home, and I dreamed of him last night as well. I guess he's really been on our minds in the last few days, and I can't wait to see the look on their faces when they see him Friday. I decided not to tell them he's coming home early, because if I did the next few days would be unbearable. They get so worked up and excited in the days before he comes back, and I figured I would have some peace, and they would get a great surprise. We all win.
