Air Travel and Honeymoons

Friday I am stepping onto a plane for the first time in 2 1/2 years.  Did I mention I h*te flying?  (we are not allowed to say that word in our house;)  Did I mention flying terrifies me? Did I mention I have tried several times to look for a reason not to go?
And yet, Friday it is.  You see, my beloved goes to Colorado the same weekend every year to ski and fellowship with fellow military friends.  I have gone with him on occasion...when driving was an option.  He finally stopped asking me to go out of frustration I think...until this year.  I got invited!  3 nights without kiddos, dogs, cooking, cleaning, appointments...well, you know, real life stuff.  So while my marvelous mom (thanks Mom!) holds down the fort, I am going on a second honeymoon. 

shhhhh...don't tell the fifty-some people we will be there with that this is my plan.

 For those that know me...this is hard!  BUT, this is needed.  The Lord says, "Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest."  Matthew 11:28

So I am going to rest, (nope, no skiing) just a time of quiet and relaxation with my hubby! (after the plane ride, that is)  I hope to come back ready to be a better mom, better wife, better teacher, better housewife, better friend.  Rested and relaxed.  I will let you know!

 Did I mention I h*te flying?  Will you please pray for me??
