Driving home from Palm Springs after being gone for the week, I was filled with great anticipation and excitement over the impending reunion with my little “Buggy B” – incredibly anxious to see her!
Unfortunately, the car trip that should have taken only about 2 ½ hours turned into more than a 4 hour drive because of traffic and rain. So by the time we finally reached our exit and pulled off the freeway, I was hootin’ and hollarin’ in the car with enthusiasm at the thought of soon holding my sweet lady.
Then my thoughts immediately shifted to Judson. Struck by my eagerness to be reunited with Jessie after only 6 days, I imagined how it would pale in comparison to the reunion with my Buddy Boo after a lifetime. Oh, the thought of holding my sweet man.
As a gesture to connect, I gently placed my left hand over Jud’s name engraved on my wrist and whispered under my breath, “Someday soon, Juddy. Someday soon.”
Eagerly I wait.
