Can you spare a shoulder?

It's late. I have to get up early. I can't sleep. Tim leaves in the morning and I didn't expect to feel so sad but I do. I've been with him 24 hours a day 7 days a week since December and now he's leaving for 3 whole months.

On a happy note. My son and a friend were riding with my son's girlfriend when her tire blew. The boys changed the tire and got her back on the road. That made me happy. My son shows every day in more and more ways that he is a man now. I think that caring for his girlfriend has made that more pronounced.

I watched the film about them finding the tomb of Jesus and his family tonight. I found the conversation that followed, hosted by Ted Koppel, with the filmmaker and some theologians more interesting than the documentary. How the story impacts people is interesting to me and how they articulate it is especially interesting to me. I, personally, have no problem with the idea of them finding Jesus' bones. In fact, I would welcome it. It would strengthen my faith. But I am certainly aware that it would impact others differently.

Thanks for the shoulder. I feel better. I think I'll go crawl back into bed and see if I can't get a little sleep.

Goodnight my sweet friends.

I know that once you get used to it, it will be ok and then he's be home before you know it. once when my hub. left for a while, I was sad, but then by the second or third night I was liking the staying up late and watching shows I liked with TOTAL control of the remote! yay. lol. mooohaa haa..ok, hope I made you laugh. email me anytime. I am sure you will keep busy. xo Lia

((LISA)) I know how you feel with the loneliness. My Beloved travels for work regularly, and I always miss him terribly.

Your boys sound just wonderful.

I can always spare a shoulder Lisa. Hope you're feeling less sad now... You're lucky to have someone to love & to miss (and who most certaintly return those feelings). Even though it's hard when the ones you love have to go away for a while, you wouldn't not want to have someone to love and to miss. Right?
But that doesn't make it any easier and perhaps it's only mean of me to put it like that. But I hope you realize that I'm not trying to tell you that it's not alright to be sad!

I better stop myself right now because I'm to exhausted to know what I mean to say ;-)

Lots of love,

Am sorry to hear you have been feeling blue missing Tim.

It must be a big adjustment after spending so much time together.

Am sending you a kiss and a hug (and can always send Ronnie and Esmeralda over to keep you company - they told me they would like to visit your part of the world!).

Love you xoxoxo
