"Monster" Prayer Request

click image to enlarge

Tomorrow I will be heading back to work,
which means these lil' monsters are headed to our sitter.
I love her.
I love working.
However,
I DO NOT love being away from my boys for an hour
let alone an entire day!!!
I have not yet been separated from Sam for more than 2 hours.
I wouldn't have even done that, if a doctors appointment 2 weeks ago hadn't turned into a trip to the hospital but that's a story for another day...
(I'm fine...it was a kidney stone...no I'm not kidding...and no I'm not old enough!!!)

Anyway, I am posting tonight to ask for your prayers as I attempt to leave my boys and head back to the paper.
Specifically, please pray for:
a smooth morning as we attempt to make it out of the house (really early!!!) and drive the commute to our sitter and my office

safety and health for Noah and Sam while in the care of their sitter.
peace, contentment and easy transition for the boys as they attempt to navigate the day without their Mommy (I know they don't really NEED me, but it feels like it should be hard for them too!)

prayers for a clear mind and a calm heart as I try not to break down on the way, dropping them off, pulling out of the sitters drive, etc.

prayers that I can differentiate between my "normal" mommy fears for the safety and health of my kiddos throughout the day and my "irrational baby loss mommy" fears throughout the day.
(BLM I know you know what I am talking about here!!!!)

Thanks in advance.
Wish me luck...

Good luck! I will pray that your day goes better than expected!!!

And the kidney stones...ugh..I had my first at 25. Yeah, I said FIRST.

Your little monsters will be okay. But I totally understand. It is hard to trust after loss....

Of course your boys need you, you're their mama! They'll be fine without you in the care of their awesome sitter, but they'll always need you, even when they're grown up. :-) I'll pray for you!

I'm a week late but will pray for your new week as well! Yes, I know those fears all too well and this is the 3rd time this has come up today as I have realized how many I actually do have.
