And so we are.
If you look at your watch, is it ticking, or is time standing still for everyone??
If I were a nervous eater, I’d be eating my way to the next season of the Biggest Loser. If I were a pacer,
I’d have worn a hole in the carpet by now. If I were a nail biter, I’d be way beyond my fingernails, probably going at Ace’s or anyone else’s.
When I get nervous, I usually find serenity in a Diet Coke. Today, it’s a whole different story. This is a whole new ballgame. I can’t quite find anything to focus on except clock to make sure it’s working (but I’m still drinking Diet Coke…I’m not quite ready to give up on the theory that it makes me calm. I just don’t think I’m getting enough.)
I’ve got a system going now…hey, don’t judge. The cans are small, they technically shouldn’t even count as drinks—they’re more like swallows. That’s why the 8 pack can easily be diminished in a moments time…and when I say a moment, I mean 2 hours or more, because today, that’s how long a moment lasts.
We are feeling the prayers of our friends and family. We cannot express enough how much we appreciate those prayers. It may seem like such a small thing, but that is the ONLY way we are enduring this—through faith and prayers…
