I must apologize for going two whole days without posting.
I had one of the craziest and most stressful weekends I have had in a long long time the last couple of days. (Okay, it was mostly Saturday. I spent Sunday recovering.)
Time, my sanity, and certain legal restraints do not permit me to recount all the events of my Saturday.
Some of the details I can give include:
-An 8 hour round trip drive (in one day) to see the DC Temple.
-Taking my husband's car keys with me to DC, leaving him stranded in the midst of crisis.
-Two separate and unrelated trips to the emergency room (in one day).
-Crazy rain storm that caused trees to break and branches to fall in the road.
And yet, I see as I read over those few details, they are insufficient to truly relate even a portion of the anxiety I and my family endured this weekend.
The good news is:
I got to take CJ and Mark to see the temple. They got to tour the visitor's center and the grounds with their primary.
I got some much needed items from the distribution center while I was there.
I got some quality time with my boys.
There were no accidents and no one was injured while driving.
I had some great friends step up to help out when we needed it.
At the end of the day when I finally got home at 11:30pm (I left at 6:30am), and after our second emergency room visit was over, everyone was healthy and surpisingly happy.
Through it all I knew I was being watched over and cared for and I know I was blessed with wisdom in how to handle some of the events.
The right words came to me when I needed them, and I was able to help someone I care about deal with something very painful to him.
I also took some beautiful pictures of the temple that I was planning on posting, but when I went to get my camera this morning I couldn't find it. If I find it soon I will post the pics so you all can share in some of the beautiful parts of the day as well.
Thanks for caring, -Della
