How’s It Going?

by adustyframe ~ September 29th, 2010

It’s going pretty well.

Other than James having a million ideas to do with Dad and James’ 2 parents being very tired from all this, we’re doing fine.

Fishing started bright and early today. They had a blast. Lee taught James a better way to cast and we all exclaimed over the big fish jumping in the lake. They didn’t catch anything though.

James stays very close to Lee which makes me smile.

Lee is doing a good job backing me up and I’m trying to do a good job letting Lee make decisions. That’s going to be a BIG adjustment for me.

I appreciate all your sweet comments. Many of you asked if Lee is home. No one has talked about that and we decided not to push it. We’re just very thankful for this right now.

We can spend as much time together as we want to. What a huge difference.

I haven’t quite felt many emotions. I’m very happy and that is obvious. But I haven’t cried or felt super excited.

I just am.

That may sound weird, but that’s the way I feel. I’m very very tired. Being tired is the way I have handled stress all along. Even though this is very good, it’s still stress. Especially the 2 weeks of waiting we just completed.

So that’s where we are.

Lee is at work tonight. James is on his way to AWANA and I have to get some work done!

    After all you have been thru and the heavy load you carried (with the Lord’s help) it is no wonder you are tired…..exhausted…..please allow yourself the chance to take a deep breath and reflect on how very…….very far you have come……it’s ok Lizzie…..the Lord is proud of the way you have conducted yourself……thru it all….

    Much love coming your way

    Glad to hear things are going well!

    It’s definitely okay to “just be.” But I hope you find the rest and rejuvenation you need!

    As others have said, there’s no should for what you should be feeling. Just take it one moment at a time, keeping in close contact with the Lord, who knows all and cares for you and your family more than you can imagine. He is there. That is enough. Still rejoicing!!

    I’m not surprised you are tired. Stress wipes me out completely and the only way I can deal with it is to sleep.

    But it isn’t only that really, you’ve spent all these years doing it all alone. You’ve had to carry on, for James and for Lee and if you had buckled then where would you all be now? You didn’t, you carried on. Now you don’t have to shoulder it all and this is your body’s way of saying ‘Hey, I need a break too. It’s OK to let Lee lead now’.

    Be kind to yourself.

    So very happy for all of you! Will continue to keep you all in my prayers and that God will show you the plan he has for your family and that Lee is allowed to return home soon. xoxo

    It sounds like you’re guarding your heart, afraid to be excited for fear that something will happen to pop this lovely bubble and Lee will once again be separated from you. My assessment may be wrong, but I could see myself being guarded like that. I continue to pray!
