Well, I made it back! I had trouble sleeping Tuesday night, so, with three hours of sleep, I left AZ at 3am, arriving home around 9:00 last night. 16 hour drives are NOT fun with no other adult, but I can't imagine trying it with no one else in the car--Ryan's done it twice. WOW!
Thankfully, I have super awesome kids and lots of people praying for me. So many times yesterday, I just said, "God...I need help. I can't keep going!" And then I would get a rush of energy and my head would clear--I knew that my friends were praying for me. :-) So, my best advice for long road trips? Make sure your friends are praying!!!
Have a great weekend!
