I normally am in bed and out by 11:00. I just don’t function well the next day if I am not. At 12:30 last night I am starring at the ceiling. I can’t sleep. What is wrong with me? Probably a lot of things but I find myself this week with so much going on in my head that my mind can not rest. I think I fell off to sleep sometime before 2.
I finally got to talk to Dave last night. Dave travels a lot. And he married the right woman for sure. I do fine with him being gone weeks at a time. However, this week I have learned that I am fine as long as we get a quick “how are you today ?” conversation in. So going 2 days without being able to communicate with each other was as if he had been gone for a month. Good things to find out and know.
But today what I really want to leave you with is this post by Aaron Ivey. He is also in Peru with Dave. I don’t think he would mind me sharing his blog he wrote last night with you. I think this blog is why I just could not sleep. I really laid in bed last night… I cried, I thought, I wondered, I dreamed, I hoped, but at the end of it all I felt so much joy. This post is one of the most moving written pieces I think I have read in a long time. I think it had such impact on me because I find myself in his story and often can not seem to articulate those feelings in words. Through discovering who I am, I’ve realized I have such a passion for children who are in search of hope. I can’t say anything more. Just please if you have a few more minutes, please read his post.
Have a wonderful day everyone. Thanks for checking in on me today.
