Life and Prepping for Hawaii – 5 Days to Paradise
Life’s a bitch. Ain’t it the truth.
Once again, my emotions are being put through the ringer. Some days I’m happy and so excited for our trip to Hawaii. I’ve been counting down the days for this trip since we got back from our honeymoon in 2011. So needless to say, I’m excited! Hawaii has always been a
place I’ve loved. And who could blame you with a view like these.
But there’s been something I’ve been hiding from a lot of people. Something that has changed my life in a split second. Something that pains me at my very core. Even just typing about it right now brings me to tears. My mom is sick. We found out about a few weeks ago and she needs surgery. RIGHT. AWAY. When she told us, my mouth felt like it dropped to the floor and my heart went with it. I was shattered, speechless, heart broken, and felt absolutely helpless. I’ve never realized how much of a problem solver I truly am until recently. My mind wouldn’t stop turning trying to think of ways to cure my mom and make this go away. NOW. Nothing else has been on my mind except for my family. We’ve been through so much in these last few years but this one takes the cake. It’s my mom, with a possibly serious The last few days I’ve realized that I can’t. I can’t make it go away. All I can do is trust on the Lord’s plan, pray
for my mom, and make this easier on her. If I’m struggling with this, I can’t even imagine what she’s going through.
So here I am, making a vow to enjoy my vacation. Instead of feeling guilty for leaving, I’m going to let it go. This is my chance to recharge my batteries so that when I come back I can help my mom in any way I can. 🙂
