In Vladimir

I will apologize upfront for all typos on blogs from here on out. I am writing on my itty bitty iPod.

I am in Vladimir after a long journey. My friends here have been so great to help me get acclimated. I slept for about 9 hours last night which was wonderful.

But here is the thing...I miss Barry terribly. It is so hard to be so far away from him. I am really struggling...not because I am all alone but because my best friend is so far from me. He is the adventurous one. He would have laughed when the power went out today at the flat. I on the other hand cried. I took a shower by the light of 2 candles. Not fun.

I pulled myself together and took the bus to a friend's where I will get to skype with Barry in just a few.

Please be praying that I would stop erupting in tears and that God would grant Barry and I wisdom on logistics for the next few weeks.


  1. My heart is breaking for you, Sweetie. Only a spouse can relate to this kind of pain. It's different than when a parent misses a child or when a friend misses a friend. Being away from your spouse (even for a day or two) is no fun. I can't imagine 10 days and the thousands of miles of separation. All I can say is hang in there and the love of your life will join you soon. Just know that I love you and I am praying for you.

  2. Praying that God will be all of your comfort through these next several days and that He will use this hard time for your good. I love you so much Sweetie! WWW!
