Day One – Committing to an Arduous Task

The following post is from a series of emails I wrote to my girlfriend at the time, whilst on a trip to Africa. She is now my wife, so I did something right.

So I just drove home, we said goodbye several hours ago, and you left me thinking three things:

1. We are going to miss each other
2. I need to get you a good present, make you know I love you.
3. Too many battered quorn sausages, plus a weird battered cheese and onion thing, can make you feel ill.

I’m tired, so today will be short. Expect this to happen a lot. Expect me to fail you too. Even so, I am going to aim to write on here every day that I am away, and post on a lovely photo every day too. Good enough for you?

I hope so. I had the idea shortly after you left, and I hope you found the bit of paper quick enough. I might drop you some hints, to make sure you go to my house tomorrow. It will be interesting looking back to see if you realised.

Today’s verse, is taken from – cos I’m too tired to do any other reading today:

“In my anguish I cried to the LORD, and he answered by setting me free.
The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”

Psalm 118:5-6
I think we are done here. I love you, mon petit tournevis Gallois.
