Good byes yet again

Somehow (by the grace of God), we made it through today. We met my husband for lunch and I took the girls swimming twice. Nothing much else to do when it is 110 degrees outside. At dinner tonight my husband actually burned his hand on the INSIDE of a door at the place we ate, simply because the heat is so intense here. I feel bad leaving him here in this heat. We did go to Wal-Mart and get him a cooler that plugs into a car or a wall outlet so he is now able to have cold drinks in his room. That will really go a long ways here I think. We also went to Sams and did some shopping for him. The girls got him some peanut m & m's and said that every time daddy eats our colors he can think of us! Then as we were driving off tonight they were trying to cheer me up. They said, "Mommy, every time we see the letter D we can think of Daddy ok?" I am also have Swirly (formerly known as Daddy Bear) here in bed with me. Our oldest said she can sleep with me and cheer me up. Also, evidently Swirly has been biting Cheetah and they needed a break from each other. She informed me I am allowed to hug Swirly like I would hug daddy and that I can call her Daddy if it makes me feel better and not so sick. Amazingly enough stuff like that does cheer me up. Also, praying with my husband before departing allowed me a feeling of peace and I did not cry..... until he was out of sight at least =). Now tomorrow we begin the long journey home and start counting down till we see him again.

Oh, such sweet girls you have. I'll be praying for encouragement and fast-flying time for you & Cliff. Labor Day will be here before you know it!
