When was the last time you cried cause you were so happy, and cried because you were sad all in the same day? Mine was TODAY. Chris got back Sunday night from a 4 day trip he took with the team they won their first two games but lost their last game Chris sprained his ankle during the 1st quarter. They leave again this morning after practice to Slovakia for 6 days!! Yep thats 6 LONG LONG days!!
Today I cried extra hard when we said goodbye I thought the 4 day trip was hard I couldn't imagine 6 days. As I got home sniffling and wiping my tears from dropping Chris off I realized I got the sweetest letter from my sister-in-law and brother in the mail which made me miss them and cry even harder (it's been a rough morning)
After putting Taimi down for a nap I heard a (ping) it was our phone with a text message and it reads..."Ash im NOT going 2 slov. coming home af practice may need ride." I wanted to scream of pure joy which I couldn't cause Taimi was sleeping so I just fell to the floor and cried because I won't be alone for 6 days trying to kill time...but MOSTLY because God is always listening. I have been praying that they would allow Chris to stay home from Slovakia because of his sprained ankle he can't play anyway so it didn't make much sense that he would have to go. And my prayer was in every way answered. It's so true whatever you ask if it be righteous and for a good reason it will be given to us. We just need to ask, take action, and have all the faith our little mortal bodies can muster.
Thank you Heavenly Father for loving me for investing so much into my life and for making me so happy!!

What a sweet story. I'm so so glad you didn't have to be alone! It got me all teary eyed! I love you and wish I could be there to keep you company while you spend those long days and nights all by yourself! Miss you!
