A Day To Breathe.

I need a day to breathe.

So I’m taking it.

The funeral for Mrs. Couch on Wednesday was beautiful. Thank you for your prayers for the family- please don’t stop.

I absolutely loved getting to hug Mr. Couch, Josh and Kate, Jason and Candace, and Justin. I didn’t have good words to say. I said dumb things. But I hugged. I kept thinking about this post from Andy and how maybe it was okay that I said dumb things.

Just being there. That was enough.

My heart is sad in some new and different ways. I don’t wanna say more about that.

I’m tired. I’ve been getting up early for many-a-morning and today I’m sleeping in.

So thank you for giving me a day to breathe.

Y’all have a good Friday. Hug the ones your love. Call the ones you haven’t called in a while. Email, facebook, snail mail, whatever. Maybe today is a good day to tell people how much you love them.

    Breathe, sleep, cry, sigh, rest, cuddle, relax, veg – you do WHATEVER you need to do to rejuvenate.

    You are a beautiful soul, Miss Annie. Love and prayers.

    Breathing days are good for the soul… days spent close to Jesus, being held by Him.

    Hugs… praying for you today.

    Though we’ve never ‘met’, I love you. You have a wonderful spirit (fueled by the Holy Spirit) and I love that about you.

    Rejuvenate. Have a blessed day.
