But first before I jump into all of that fun I have to stop and say Thank You!
It has been a tremendously hard month. We had some issues with the big mutt, that seemed super huge at the time and then a dear friend died.
Suddenly died, tragically.
The kind of news that sends you through the motions of planning for the funeral, caring for the family and holding one another.
I was there for my hubby when we got the news...it was his dear and close friend.
I was there for the younger friends who had not yet experienced a loss...the twenty somethings.
I was there for my kids.
Explaining the hard facts about cancer and depression.
About how four kids lost their dad way too soon.
But....then....when you least expect it....WHAM!
You get hit!
The why? the How could it happen? the Oh God, please help!
I am the gal who feels...and I mean really feels. Your pain is my pain. Your fear, my fear. This loss hit me and tossed me around like a rag doll.
It made me physically ill. I could not eat, my stomach was a mess. SO you go to the doctor and they give you meds. And those meds make you even sicker.....Hence the trip to the ER.
So..there I was..with doctors and medicine and none of it working and a vacation to plan for not to mention getting on the road.
What do you do.....You pray.
Not the everyday kind of prayer...I am talking about the Lord take it, kind of prayer. The you have no words, no understanding, no strength kind of prayer. I asked Him to cover me, to protect me and I leaned in.
I am not a good leaner.
I am the go to girl.
I LIKE to control stuff.

You see...He knows. God gives us just what we need when we need it. His grace is sufficient. Those of us like me who hold on tight have a hard time remembering this.
We are so use to fighting and figuring out and taking care of , that when we are met with something that is so beyond us, we freak.

See... she knows me...she knows how I think...and how I can spinnnnnn. "Don't go before the Lord!"
This week was exactly what the Lord ordered. OHHHH....get this one girlies.....I even forgot my entire suit case.
Not only did God want me to lean in He wanted me to TRUST HIM!
No luggage.....and it was the best week ever.
Blessings sweet friends...and remember....DGBL.
