Wow! Praise God! I've survived 8 days in being alone with the kids at home without Hubby. This is such a breakthrough for me. The longest I was alone with Lyle without hubby was 3 nights and 4 days when he and Tricia went to Malaysia. That was a breeze since it wasn't very long and I only had one child with me.
But this time, I had both kids and we'll be home alone for 13 days. Whew! Praise God for his strength and grace. It's not an easy task especially since both of my kids are highly energetic and my li'l boy is getting to be talkative too. Oh, there were times that I would just wish to be alone and enjoy peace and quiet.
And I thank God for granting me this desire since I'm having an afternoon off now. Thank God for friends who are taking care of my kids. I actually had a relaxing afternoon at the coffee shop, was able to go around town for a walk and am now enjoying the quietness in our house. I'll be having a short nap in awhile too. ;)
