Vacation Preparation

Boy, after planning a vacation, I really need a vacation. It's a lot of work! Especially with a child to think about and pack for grandma and grandpa's too. I'm exhausted and ready to relax.

We are leaving Sophia with our parents for 4 nights while we are in Mexico. I am already having a really hard time with the idea of leaving her and have broken down twice. I have never once left her overnight before. Once I tried, but ended up coming home at 3 am. This vacation is meant to be an enriching, special time for Jared and me and I know that Sophia will be in the best of hands, but this Mommy's heart of mine is still breaking. I would request prayer for peace and assurance that Sophia will be safe and secure in my absence. I also ask that my mind would center its focus on my dear husband, and not be consumed with how much I miss our daughter. Thank you all for your prayers. It is so comforting to know that I can reach out for prayer support to so many wonderful people.

It's so hard to leave your baby for the first time! My heart goes out to you. Praying right now, Naomi.

You are right--Sophia will be in great hands.

I also pray you have a wonderful trip. That you and Jared can really just play and have fun, and connect.
