Hard Night

Normally I've been in bed LONG before's 11:30 PM!  I just finished packing up Jeff's suitcase that he's taking to Alexandria, LA, to live for the month of June.  I know that this isn't the end of the world, I know that it could be SO much worse (he could've been assigned this site for the entire clinicals for a year and a half, going to Iraq for a year, etc) but I'm still dreading Sunday.  I've never been that good at saying good-bye to Jeff since I had to do it so many times while we dated long-distance for 4 1/2 years.  My goodness I remember them like it was yesterday.  Can I say thank goodness technology has come such a long way since then?!?  We have the internet, cell phones with FREE MINUTES and texting and webcams.  That will help this month go by quickly.  
He is just such a vital part to our family.  I hope the girls do okay without him during the week, I hope that I don't bite their heads off ~ I've never done it this long without him for this long.  I mean, he's Daddy!!!  I am seriously the most blessed woman on the face of this earth to be his wife.  There is not hardly a person (well, really woman...not many men care to listen LOL) that he's worked with that doesn't know all about his girls, how precious they are to him, how cute they are to him and how important they are to them.  See, I told you he's the best!!
But here's another way that I'm blessed.  I've been blessed with an amazing Father that loves me even more than my phenomenal husband.  He loves me so much that He sent His Son to die for my sins so that I can spend eternity with Him one day.  He is also my Comforter, my Healer, my Rock and my strength.  He told me to cast all of my burdens upon Him and that is what I'm going to do.  I know that there is NO WAY I can make it through this month without Him.  So forgive me my pity party, I should be done now.  Feel free to send your prayers our way.  :)  
I love you honey and couldn't be more proud of you!!  Hurry home, Daddy.  And happy 11th anniversary on Saturday.  :)
