Keepin it real

The past few days have been rough. I am not sleeping well at all.  I took a muscle relaxer on Wednesday night and it took me all Thursday and the better part of Friday for it to wear off.  I hate that feeling but needed to try to get some sleep...I slept all right but not the good kind.

Mark asked me today if I was tired of being on the truck and my response was " today I am".  And its true.  Today I wanted to be anywhere but here on this truck.  Just one of those days and I am sure tomorrow will be better.  We are in Texas again, delivering to Laredo on Monday morning.  Our drop is two miles from the US/Mex border. Wonder how that wall is going... ha.

There is something that has been weighing on me.  I found out about this young woman named Sam Sayers that went missing after hiking in WA on 8/1.  #findsamsayers is the FB page.
Her mom reports in at least once a day and her strength and determination to find her daughter is legendary.  I find myself thinking about Sam and her family all the time.  I just cannot even imagine if one of my kids was missing on the side of a mountain how I would feel.  I mean, Griffin is somewhere in NC (we have not heard from him since March) and it drives me nuts.  I stalk his FB to make sure he is still alive and kicking but it tears us apart that he will not contact us.  So, I just cannot fathom what Sam's mom Lisa must be feeling.    Please check out the Facebook group and keep them all in in your prayers.  A miracle is truly needed, today.

Looking forward to a better day tomorrow.

Goodnight all.
