Leaving On A Jet Plane......

Tomorrow morning, my dear hubby and I will board a plane at 6:00 a.m. in the morning (which means we roll out from our driveway at above 4:30 a.m.)

We will be flying into Dallas, Texas and then renting a car and driving up to Norman, Oklahoma.. My sis and her hubby don’t live in Oklahoma anymore (they currently call South Carolina home), but my brother in-law’s family were kind enough to let us stay with them.

We’ll then drive back down to Texas to stay one night with my Meemaw in Weatherford, and then one MORE night in Dallas with my Godparents.

My parents are staying here at home to watch ALL of our kiddos (with some help from my dear hubby’s Mom as well). I must admit, I am already missing my baby boy, and I’m not even gone yet. My girlies will handle it a little better, I think, but I am going to miss all of them so much!


Does this trip have deeper implications for my hubby and I than just “time away” together?

Absolutely.

Do I know exactly what they are yet?

Nope.

I’ll hopefully have something to tell when we get back.

Praying your trip is inspiring, refreshing and filled with His presence and blessings ~ smiling now as I anticipate hearing about the wonders of it all when you return. :-) Even the muddled stuff turns fun when it is just the two adults. :-) Bless you.
