So I asked my Hubby today if we could get out of town soon being since I haven't left the Valdosta area in over 10 months! His answer was that we can't afford to go anywhere... plus if I wanted to go somewhere I needed to have ideas before I asked him. Blah Blah. So instead of getting upset about it, I prayed about it. Man oh man was it hard for me to bite my tongue too. I let him go into his spiel about how I don't have a job and why do I need a vacation. Then about how he would trade with me and stay home with Lannah. I have heard it all before. But I kept my mouth shut. By the time he was done thoughts of running away were playing in my mind. 
Not too long after our conversation it was time for us to pray with Lannah before he headed off to work. It took all my might to hold his hand while we prayed and even more strength to kiss him afterwards. While he got his lunch and gear together I went and laid in bed trying to hold back all my anger praying for God to help me. I was so upset I refused to get out of bed to see him off, as I usually do, so he left without saying goodbye. 
That hurt even more so I pulled the covers over my head and started to cry and pray that God would take away my anger and hurt. That someone would actually see all the things I have done without complaining or asking of anything in return. I didn't want all my hard work to be thrown away due to resentment.
But then just as I was about to cry myself to sleep I heard something... it sounded like the front door... and as I pulled the covers off of my face I saw Jason. He was standing there with this look of regret, then he told me how sorry he was, how great of a mother and wife I was and that I deserved a break! *More tears ( good ones though) Then he kissed me goodbye and said we would plan a vacation in the morning. WOW!!! Thank you God... I was acknowledged without even speaking one word to Jason. And I get a vacation too... that's awesome! God really does listen and knows how to answer our prayers. He is great!
