Kelly, Georgiana and I all survived!!!
Yesterday morning, I held my little sleeping baby in my arms and bawled as I said goodbye. But, thankfully I pulled it together on my drive to work and managed to get through the day with dry eyes. I clung to the verses in the post below, and I can honestly tell you that it was only the Lord dumping peace on me that got me through the day. There was a very brief moment that I almost felt guilty for how calm I was. Then I remembered that that peace was a blessing! Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement. I am so thankful that the first day is over! I don't have to go back until Friday late afternoon, and after that I will be working in the evening so hopefully Miss Georgiana Lee will sleep most of the time I am gone. It helped that with each phone call to Kelly, he and Georgiana were doing great! They even ventured out and had a special treat waiting for me at home :)
Take a wild guess what it was...
Yes, a doughnut. Oh, but not just any doughnut, it is my new fav. A Bavarian Cream filled one with chocolate frosting and white chocolate shavings.
While out and about they ran into my Aunt Michelle, Uncle Roger and cousin Makenzie. So much fun!
Along with phone calls, Kelly also texted (do you say text or texted???) me pictures throughout the day. My sweet girl was smiling away in each one, wearing the cutest little number ;) Kelly was very proud of the ensemble he put together. A colorful onesie with little animals all over it, pink and magenta striped capris, complete with purple and black mary jane style socks... yep :)
By the time I got home the garage door couldn't open fast enough, I literally ran to Georgie. My arms felt so empty all day, they ached for her.
Kelly casually said, "today was one of the greatest experiences of my life."
I think we are going to get through this. One experience at a time.
