"Have you ever loved someone so much, you'd give an arm for? Not the expression, no, literally give an arm for? When they know they're your heart - And you know you are their armor - And you will destroy anyone who would try to harm her."
Instantly I started crying. I miss the baby so much. It is crazy how wrapped around someone you can become after only 8 months and not even a word has been said. I miss my family a lot. I was crying 40% for physical pain and the rest was emotional. Not to mention it is raining by now...how uplifting! I stopped to pee, I stopped to stretch, I stopped to stop. I prayed to God, I talked to myself; and then I saw the privy. And then the shelter; I was finally here. I was beaten and battered, and all I heard was laughter from the shelter. I passed on by; bushwhacked down the hill, and set up my tent in the rain. I got inside, texted my mom with less than 20% battery left, and just wanted to be alone. I don't have water, not to mention I don't even know where the source is- so I made a peanut butter and Nutella tortilla wrap, ate the rest of the fruit snacks, and didn't plan on getting out of my tent. I meditated for awhile, and then laid down to go to sleep. I heard yelling in the woods that made my ears perk, then again I heard something that sounded like my name from an unfamiliar voice. I texted Lynn, Dave, and Nick to let them know I was ok and tenting below and my phone was dying. I didn't want them to leave without me tomorrow since we are finally going into town! Franklin, NC; a shower, clean clothes, food, and a bed! Now I know how bipolar people feel on a daily basis, the Appalachian Trail gives me that luxury!
