Break down

My Hola had a break down yesterday.
He came home from football camp with some of his buddies on Saturday night and was so sore.
He did very well by the way.
He came in first of his age group for the punt, pass, kick drill they did.
Here are some photos, compliments of Uncle Liva!! (Thanks Liva and Jen for letting him come and do football camp with your boys!)

He was tired so when I came home from ward counsel meeting, Sunday morning at 8:30 am to wake him up and get my boys ready for church, he wanted to stay home.
I reminded him that it was his last Sunday here and that he'd probably want to say bye to his friends at church.
He looked at me, a little confused and in a sleepy daze. 
He asked me if it was really his last Sunday.
I told him that it was because we were going to spend his last week in Utah with my mom and sisters.
He reluctantly got up and hopped in the shower.
I bathed Jack and Kendric, got them ready and was calling out for Hola to put his socks and shoes on.
He didn't reply.
I called him again and there was no answer.
I left the boys on the bed and walked into Hola's room.
He was sitting on the floor trying his best to button up his shirt.
I asked him if he was okay. 
He looked up at me with tears in his eyes.
He jumped up into my arms and told me he didn't want to go back.
I let him cry because quite frankly I don't want him to go either.
And quite frankly, this situation stinks.
I don't like the fact that our time together was so short.
After a minute, he gathered himself together and stopped crying.
He got ready for church and held Kendric and Jack a little tighter.
We made it to church and of course we ended up in the foyer since my little rascals can never sit still in Sacrament meeting.
I would die a thousand deaths than have to see my children suffer or feel sad.
But then again, I have to remember that our Father in Heaven had to endure much more than me.
He sent his only Son to make the ultimate sacrifice for everyone.
In the grand scheme of things, we have it really good.
I have my boys and they are healthy and strong.
I must not take for granted all of the blessings I have been given.
In church we sat a little closer, held hands a little longer and savored our precious moments together.
As much as it hurts knowing that within a week we will have to say so long to Hola for a little bit but I know things will be different soon.
My pain doesn't compare to some and I will always be grateful for all that I have.
What are you grateful for?

I'm grateful for these wonderful boys and amazing husband.
These guys are my life and I will forever be grateful to be their mother and Isaiah's wife!
Those are blessings I will never be able to forget, not for one second.
I hope you all have a great week and please don't take anything for granted.
You never know how long you may have it or them.
