What do you do?

-What do you do when you just want to fly halfway across the country and smack somebody upside the head?

-What do you do when someone you love is hurting but they are halfway across the country and you feel helpless to help them?

-What do you do with all those pictures of a person who suddenly decided they didn't want to be involved in your lives anymore?

-What do you do with prepaid airline tickets when there isn't going to be a wedding?

I don't know what you would do, but here's what I've done so far:

-I prayed, then played video games in godmode with my hubby to kill monsters as much as I wanted.

-I pray and send random, hopefully encouraging, texts and ask people to join with me in prayer.

-I ignore them. For now.

-We are flying to CA. Taking a family vacation. We are going to do silly things and have fun, and my 4 month old will experience his first plane trip.

I still want to smack somebody upside the head. I still hurt for my brother. Those feelings aren't going away anytime soon. But life is more than anger, life is more than pain. God has given us so many blessings, and we have so much to be thankful for. This too shall pass.


  1. You need a check box for something along the lines of: I'm praying for you, or I have empathy, or I've read this, or something.
    You have too many posts that are thought provoking, heart warming, sympathy grabbing, and I don't want to check "funny", "interesting", or "cool" on posts like this, cause I don't think any of them are appropriate.
    So, for now, I will check:
    X I love you, my She'Endra

  2. YAY! You took my suggestion! I feel like I've contributed! I now return you to your regularly scheduled day.
