07/17/2005: "From Sabbath to Sabbatical"mood: wistful
There are roughly 24 hours left until we wave goodbye to Richard and head north. I'm a little sad thinking about how much I will miss him while we're gone...how the children and I wish things were different so he could accompany us for at least part of the trip. I know we will have lots of fun with family over the next couple of weeks, and it's good to feel that longing to be all together as a family.
This has been a very nice Sunday, despite the heat.
There are likely less than 50 days until we become a family of 7.
I'm grateful to be who I am, where I am.
