Listening

I am still in a state of awe with what happened today.

My husband and I booked a trip to Las Vegas, NV and bringing our Production Manager with us to the West Coast Art and Frame show.  This is a yearly convention.  My husband and I attended last year together.

For the past 2 days I have had an uneasy feeling about going.  Couldn’t really explain it.  Didn’t tell anyone because I thought it was just me.  Last night I had a very sleepless night because I kept thinking about the both of us going away together.  I wanted to spend some alone time with my husband, some much needed time.  But this feeling was troubling.

I couldn’t get the following out of my mind:

  1. Our Last Will & Testament needed to be updated
  2. I was uneasy about the both of us going
  3. Something terrible was going to happen (not sure what)

Now…..I have always prayed before our trips.  For safety, for the pilot, for the plane, etc.  But I felt as if I was on a prayer treadmill for this.

The next day, I was very testy and short.  Couldn’t explain why.

As I went downstairs to pack, my 16 year old daughter came down, had tears in her eyes and was shaking.  I asked, “Sweetie, what’s wrong?”

She responded, “I don’t know!  But I feel really scared.”  I have said NOTHING to her or anybody.

As I was hugging her I asked, “Can you explain to me what you’re feeling, and why?”

“I feel like something is going to happen and I don’t like that the both of you are going together.”  This would be normal if it happened frequently, or if it even has EVER happened……But it hasn’t.

Okay…..I had a sleepless night and I’m uneasy about going together on this trip.  My daughter had a mini panic attack about us going together.  I’m getting a little freaked out!

Called my husband downstairs to discuss.

He said for some reason, and he has NEVER before, purchased travel insurance on our flight/reservations.  He just thought that because we booked so late, he was concerned there was something that might have been going on at the same time.

Now this is even more weird.

My mom was on her way over, she was going to be staying with the kids.  And I said I was also going to ask her opinion for what we should do.

Her response….”I have had a very uneasy feeling for the past 3 days.  The same thing.  She said at church that night, she was so concerned, she just continued to pray.”

Done……..my trip is cancelled.  And we have continued to pray for their safety.

I know it might be nothing.  But I know that 3 of us had the same feelings, when all 3 of us have never had these strong of feelings such as we just experienced.

I’m listening.  And we decided for me to stay home.
