I have been counting down the days and hours and minutes until 4:50 pm today when my husband was scheduled to arrive. But unfortunately, he didn't make it through Customs in order to catch his connecting flight. But what's another five hours after five weeks apart, right?
Bummer! I was really looking forward to a great evening with him! Instead, he'll arrive at 9:50 pm...and then leave again at 6:00 am tomorrow morning. We'll make the most of this short time together, and then I'll start the new countdown until he finishes his class and returns home on Friday evening.
But it's a blessing just to have him in the country. After five weeks of waiting on international calls and calculating time differences, it's such a blessing to just pick up the phone and call or text him whenever I want. And it will be totally worth it...whenever he does arrive.
