Daughter called about 6:30 this morning. She was happy. She was excited about coming home, and she apologized for yesterday evening's call. I was relieved.
That was the first of several phone calls I received before 8:00 this morning. In addition to Daughter, I have two other very needy women in my life right now. Supporting them without getting sucked in and dealing with the demands of ministry has been challenging.
I'm looking forward to a spending time with Daughter this evening. This morning I suggested she take her bear hug sweatshirt back with her. I bought that so she could wear it when I'm not around to hug her. She thought that was a good idea. I was pleased to hear her acknowledge she'll be going back. This will work, it will just take time.
