Leo and I spent the morning enjoying each other's company, then we took the drive in from Port Lavaca to Houston and I dropped him off at the airport. I was a good girl today. There were no tears.
We had a long heart-to-heart this morning before we left home. I had begun to think about the fact that we prayed so hard for this job to be available for Leo, and now that it is a reality, I can't believe I would actually want to wish it away. The honest truth is that even though we miss each other terribly when he's gone, this job is EXACTLY what we need at this point in our lives. We both have a lot of work to do when Leo is on his rotation, and when he gets off, we enjoy our time together so very much. I've decided that I can miss him and be anxious for his return without going so far as wishing there was no job in Nigeria. Today's discussion was a good one for us, and I think it put us back on track. We've got lots of good days ahead together and I can't wait to see him again. But I am so very thankful that he has this wonderful job right now as well.
