Lazy Daze

I think we are all a little messed up from the three hour time
difference. Caiden falls asleep every time we get in the car (after
fighting tooth and nail to get her in her car seat). Elliott has been
bouncing off the walls and tossed and turned all night last night.

Over all though, we're holding up pretty well, so far. It has been
good to see our friends and family. Though I think David may have
been forseeing trouble when he gave me his "you're a warrior" speech.
"You will protect our family." I am convinced that I am in actuality
not a warrior at all, but more of a Gumby type. But I have already
had a chance to put the warrior speech into action and have had to
fight for my kids. We've only been here for one day and have already
encountered opposition. Kind of why I limit my visits to this side of
the country... These are the times when I really feel like I need my
husband by my side. What was I thinking to come here by myself?

"Listen to Me, O Jacob,
And Israel, My called:
I am He, I am the First,
I am also the Last.
Indeed My hand has laid the foundation of the earth,
And My right hand has stretched out the heavens;
When I call to them,
They stand up together."
Isaiah 48:12,13

I need your prayers...

Hope everything ends up going well and I'll keep you in my prayers.
