Last week was rough. So was yesterday. I woke up emotionally numb and heavy-hearted this morning. Steve and I shared coffee and prayer over breakfast. While he headed out the door to work, I grabbed my Bible and journal and headed to the patio. I sat for quite awhile and journaled the most I've written at one in several years. I felt at peace, but still filled with questions.
And then, my best friend Kate came over. She lives out of town, and I miss her dearly. It was so nice to have her here even though I had to take Kian to an appointment. Every time Kate has visited, Kian has been grumpy. Today was her first time getting to see him in a good mood. He's a charmer when he's happy. Later on Kian proved that he hadn't been abducted by aliens when he pitched a fit, but he was at his giggliest for the first part of her visit. We chatted a bit, drank tea and coffee, and just hung out. We didn't have a deep conversation today, but it was just so nice and restful to hang out with my best friend again. I miss her so much! I'm thrilled that she's going to be in town for the next couple of days. Between her visit and some good meetings for Steve today, I feel much better about life. This may just be a reprieve, but breaks are necessary for survival. I am thankful. :)
