A Blessed Thanksgiving Holiday

After much back and forth as to whether J would be coming home, I got the following text,

IMG_5391“Good news or bad news?” he asks

“Both,” I reply

“There is no bad news … leaving tomorrow for home!!!!”

Tears streamed down my face.

J arrived around 3p on Wednesday night and we immediately drove to our 18.96. He hadn’t seen the place since August when he left. To my surprise and JOY, I’d done everything “right.”

We spent the next several days working, running and enjoying each other’s company. It all went by way too fast.

On Thanksgiving we surveyed and marked all of our property lines . . .


I even did a little yoga . . .IMG_5412

By Saturday our excavator cleared our building pad and had a temporary driveway in place.


And on Sunday, J left for Kentucky for his next assignment. We got a family photo just before he left. Can you tell I’d been crying all day?
