That's where Andrew called me from last night to talk, report, tell me he loves me, pray with me, and say goodnight. I then proceeded to sleep like a baby for the next 10 hours. I was so glad to hear his voice. And thank heaven for international rechargeable phone cards!
Yesterday was hard. Can't even begin to pretend it wasn't. But I had lots of support. Both sets of parents plus Seth. Andrew's parents had to leave early this morning, though, and now the rest of us are just concentrating on getting us moved out of our little house in Hinesville.
We are so glad to have finally taken a step in this new part of life. Not that we love the part, but the steps will add up after a while and then he'll be home! And we're so glad not to be dreading "d-day" anymore. It's come and gone. And now we just have to be strong and receive the grace for the day...and keep ourselves busy so the days will go by!
A year just feels so long.
