This last year and the last few months in particular, have been a roller coaster ride for me. Handling everything for this move by myself, and having just about everything go wrong is starting to get old. I think I should start calling myself Murphy, because so far everything that could go wrong has, lol. I am trying to stay positive, but sometimes its so hard and right now I feel so overwhelmed. :( We are supposed to be leaving on Friday to start our drive out to Virginia. Saturday was my Bon Voyage party and that day I found out some bad news. My husband's best friend Jake (who is supposed to be coming on the trip with us) has somehow gotten a bad eye infection. His eye has been swollen, red, and producing puss for the past three days and he is in a lot of pain. He has been to urgent care twice, and gotten some drops for his eye and some pain meds, but he is still not fully recovered. I am really worried about him, and not just because of the trip, but because I know that he is not feeling well. He is not a baby by any means, so I knew it had to be serious for him not to come to the party on Saturday. So please, please, pray for him that God can heal his eye and help him to get better. Even if he can't come on the trip with us I just want him to be ok!! As of right now I am sort of stunned and am trying to tell myself that everything will work itself out. If Jake can't go with us on the trip then we will have to leave a day earlier, which will bump our trip up to Thursday afternoon once my mother in law gets off work. Since neither she or I can drive a stick, that means my father in law will be stuck driving my husbands car the entire time! I am trying to stay positive and am a firm believer that the lord will help me get through all this, but it would be awesome if you could say a prayer for Jake to get better, and a prayer for me to have the strength to get through this and keep my sanity in tact. I spoke with my Grandparents today (they live in TN) and my Grandpa assured me everything will be ok, and not to worry. He says these things have a way of working themselves out. Well Grandpa, I hope you're right!! ;) If Jake doesn't go, my Gramps said he would love to meet up with us in Nashville and finish the last day and a half of the trip with us. That would be great since it would give my father in law a break from driving the entire way, and I would love to see my Gramps. So I am leaning on the Lord right now, and trying to tell myself not to worry about tomorrow, because today has enough worries of its own. I know it will work out somehow, and I know that somehow, and some way we will make it to Virginia by next Monday! Wish me luck and please keep us in your prayers!!
