Escape

This month has been hell. I mean, seriously. We’re dealing with a couple of BIG things plus a bunch of small ones piled on all at once. Isn’t that how it always happens though? I’m so ready to wave goodbye to February. So long, crappy month! Hopefully I can share more soon. You know, when we get through everything and can look back and say, “Oh, so that’s what God was up to!” But for now we’re just holding on. Anderson and I needed a little escape last week, so Grandma and Papa took Kingston for a night. And we got to go out. Like, on an actual date. Just the two of us! We saw a movie, had dinner, dessert, coffee and ended the night at Lowe’s. There’s nothing like drowning your sorrows in food and a new project. (I bought a giant piece of wood for a big re-do of our front entryway. It barely fit in my car, but thankfully Anderson is the Tetris King!) We ate at The Salty Fig, a new place in Riverside. I love their food truck but hadn’t tried the restaurant yet. Definitely recommend it! But my favorite part of the night (other than alone time with my man) was running into friends everywhere we went. While we were having dinner some of our favorite people showed up at the restaurant and were seated right behind us. Then we saw other friends at the coffee shop we went to after dinner. When I’m really dealing with hard stuff I like to hide. That’s how I cope. Just lock me in the house and don’t make me talk about it. But God knew we needed encouragement from friends, and I know he placed them in our path just for that. He really is the best!

  1. Ahhh LOVE Salty Fig. We are similar in the way we cope…. “When I’m really dealing with hard stuff I like to hide.” God places people in our lives sometimes for just the very reason of being an encourager! Praise Him for placing those special people in your path just when you needed them! Praying for you my friend! Thank you for sharing….it encouraged me!

  2. Yep. I’m a hider too. So good on ya for not crawling in a hole! For finding escape around people when you’d rather be alone in your pain. How else can God redeem our suffering if we keep it all to ourselves? Oh, and I love those appointed run-ins, don’t you? Especially if they are sweet and stay at their own table.

  3. Must be in the air. Weird month. I know too many people going through tough stuff right now, including us. I say we all crawl under a rock and hide together for a bit. No talking, just eating lots of sorrow-drowning chocolate. What do you say? 😀 Hugs and prayers.

  4. Lyndsay – so I guess you knew EXACTLY how I felt when I probably vented too much to your simple question last Sunday. (Probably more than you wanted or needed) But unlike you I typically don’t hide but blurt out my problems in hopes I will feel better. February is over this week and I hope when it is over you are offered clarity to your struggles. 🙂 Thanks for being you and sharing your awesomeness with all of us!

  5. OK, here is some Riverside trivia for you. What restaurant was originally housed in the building where the Salty Fig is now?

    Give up? It was “Buddy Ezell’s Bar-B-Q”, circa 1977. There was a guy who worked there who looked just like the “dinner creeper.”

  6. I’m with you. So far, February can take it and shove it where the sun don’t shine. January too for that matter. I GIVE UP! I think that’s the point. When we are at our lowest, He’s there. He’s there at the highest too…but we don’t always ‘need him’. It’s at our lowest, we cry out more. Bless you sister. I’ll hide with you if you wanna run! 😉 Because I”m ready! xoxoxo Praying! Love you girl!

  7. LOL!!! I love the picture of Eddy the dinner creeper! The Foyes are awesome. February has been really tough on John and I…really, if I am honest…the past few months. Misery loves company, I guess. We are praying for you guys and you’re right…God knew that you all needed to see friendly faces and I am so glad you both got an evening out with some fun frivolity! Hope we see y’all soon!
