Okay... it's midnight and I'm in the hotel room. I'm packed up. My beautiful daughter Gentry is asleep in the other bed. I am leaving for the airport in 3.5 hours. Sleep will be a couple of hours. I have been quietly thinking in my hotel room. I have been reflecting on CHA. WHY do I do what I do? I am really missing my family. I am so excited to be home. I miss LOVE... yes, I miss being surrounded by my husband and children. I LOVE what I do and it is because of them that I am passionate about preserving the feelings... the LOVE that we have.
I was turning off my computer a few moments ago when I saw that my husband had emailed me FOUR photos... He is home with our two sons-
Zach had a baseball game today. Here he is... he is so gifted and talented at baseball. I love to watch him catch. He plays for Cottonwood High School this Summer on the 15U and 16 U teams.
This is Zach... age 14... my son. I am a big ole baby in my hotel room CRYING... I hope I can see to type this post. My heart is tender tonight.
Yes, I miss my boys... all of them. What hit me most was that my husband Tyler KNEW I needed to see these photos. He KNOWS me so well and knows what matters most to me. He loves me so much and supports me. In doing so, he makes sure when I'm away that he is 100% present and there for the boys. It really just touched me.
He is 13 years old now... not a baby anymore but he certainly is still my baby. Ha!
I just could not sleep without expressing from the heart to my husband how much his love and support means to me. I am balancing a busy life. I often feel pulled in so many directions. Don't we all feel this? I am emotional... CHA has been WONDERFUL. I am so thankful for another great show and three amazing collections that have sold well. NOW... it's time to leave in a few hours and love on my family. I can't wait....
