Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart

2/22/2008

Sleep? Who needs it!

Well it is now 1:30 and Dave has gone in to the waiting room to look for an available couch to take a little nap on. He finally arrived about 30 minutes ago. His plane from Dallas to Omaha was delayed several times causing him to arrive two and a half hours later than planned. Ash was already sleeping so she has no idea he has come to spend the weekend with her.

I don't think I will sleep tonight. So many, many things running through my mind. I have to be up at 4am anyway so laying down would be kind of pointless. I just jumped out of the shower and still need to dry my hair and empty my purse making sure I don't have any hidden tubes of toothpaste or anything dangerous like that. Dave is just so funny. I told you he makes me laugh every single day. I love that guy and I am so glad he has made it here safely. I decided not to take anything home with me. Only my purse which actually seems kind of pointless to carry now that I realized my debit card was accidentally thrown in the trash with my lunch. I honestly don't know how I could have been so irresponsible, but I was and it is gone. Who knows what I was thinking and how in the world did I not figure it out until 6 hours after the fact? !

Well, I have no idea what I did but the next 3 paragraphs just disappeared from the screen. I guess that means I'm too tired to be blogging. Silly me, I had some really good things to say. I suppose I will just save them for another day. Maybe Saturday or Sunday since I will be running on pure adrenaline and determination until around 11pm tomorrow night. I can't wait to tell you all about Al's birthday.

Hope you all are sleeping by now and hope that you all have a blessed day tomorrow. Thanks for praying for us guys. Take care. Trish

I hope that you have a good flight. And as much as you will be thinking about Ashley, try to enjoy yourself as much as you can and have a great time with your son and daughter. I am sure that they are SUPER EXCITED to see you! Can't wait to hear all about the birthday party! I bet your husband is excited about getting to spend some time with little Ashley. Have a wonderful weekend!

I was asleep, but when I wake up, I always check on Ashley and you, Sweetheart. It's a grandma thing. God keep you all in the palm of His hand.

Well, you should be in the air by now is everything is going right this morning...no fog or bad weather that is. Praying for you this weekend and especially for Allie's birthday to be all that and some. I know you will have a blessed time just by being present. Praying for Dave today, that he was able to get a little sleep and that Ashley and he will have a wonderful weekend. Praying that all of her health issues will go smoothly while you are away. God Bless and enjoy your time in Longview!
