alone in Europe

Wow, were these past weeks a struggle.
I was in Germany with my family working at an English camp.
I didn't even decide to join them until 2 weeks before the camp.
Mainly because of the stupid, selfish reason that wasn't ready to go back.

They left before me, leaving me to travel by myself.
I'm a big girl and have been traveling alone for years.
But this year, I did not want to travel alone.
And return home alone.
To much down time to think...
and too many memories to remember.

I got back last night.
From Europe.
I was 7 hours away from him.
and didn't see him...

So close. So, so close.

The camp was amazing, don't get me wrong.
But satan tried his hardest to distract me the painful way.
I hate to say that I wasn't strong enough to fight him off...
Everything the entire week reminded me of him.
It was so hard.

This was the first time in years that I explored new, foreign cities without him.
The first time I wasn't in Europe holding some one's hand.
.His hand.

And of course, while I was fighting my inner desire to jump on a train and rush to see him,
mutual friends posted pictures of him on Facebook.
Looking amazing, of course.
Surrounded by girls, of course.

When it hits, it hits hard. Duh.
Shoulda figured that would happen.

It's been 4 months and 1 day...

But it feels like yesterday.

Give it all to God, give it all to God, give it all to God....
God, please take it all away.
I'm so tired.
