My heart is just not been in to blogging lately. My Love has gone away. Specifically, he is 8 hours away. But to me it feels like forever away.
I have never talked about James’s job on here, my blog. I do this for a few reasons one being that I’ve never asked him if it was okay (until this post). Two his job can be dangerous and I don’t want somebody to find him because of my blog. That being said, my husband is the equivalent to a ROCK STAR at his job! And I’m not just saying that because I’m his wife. His performance reports and case closure rates prove that.
James had a case that got turned over to the Secret Service. The Secret Service was impressed by the quality and amount of work accomplished by someone who had not received specialized training in this area. They were so impressed, in fact, they offered him a spot on their task force for our metropolitan area. They also offered him specialized training in the financial crimes area. See? Told ya’! Total rock star! James is currently away at their training facility/school.
He will be gone for 5 weeks. Two and half weeks have already passed. But the girls and I miss him terribly. From the moment James and I met, we have seen each other at least once a week, usually more. We had a whirlwind romance which you can read about here. So without him here I have just felt so lost and lonely.
Last Friday morning, around 11 o’clock, I decided to pack up two toddlers (3 and under) and drive almost 9ish hours to surprise visit him. And boy was he surprised! So were a lot of other people because we didn’t tell anyone except my mother we were traveling.
We had an amazing weekend. We did lots of sightseeing, hiking, walking around, it was just good, quality family time. It was something my heart, the girls’ hearts, and James’ heart needed. Sure, driving home Monday was sad, but the memories from that weekend will last longer than the 18 days he has left in training/school.
Now tell me, what have you done for love lately?
Have a blessed day!
