It has not been easy or fun for any of us. But that is life, you know? It just...is.
About a week ago, Matt and I made plans to go bowling with friends while my mom watched the boys. Our friend Dave asked us if we could stop really quick on the way to help move from furniture, and when we walked in -- SURPRISE! It was a going away party for us!
|I was shaking from the surprise, and completely blurred ALL the pictures I took.|
Emily : SURPRISE!
Me: What is this??
Emily: It's a party!
Me: What for?
Emily: ::shrug:: because we love you.
It was so incredibly sweet to see so many family and friends all gathered just to let us know that they will miss us, and oh man...I managed to save the ugly cry for the last few minute when only my family members were left. I think what put me over the edge was opening a gift from my Nanna, who gave us blank cards, envelopes, and stamps with a note that said "Write often, I don't have a computer".
Breaks my heart.
Sunday also marked another bittersweet moment. For two years now, Matt has enjoyed playing bass periodically for our church worship team, and this Sunday was his last time playing.
I KNOW that good things are planned for us, and I know that God knows those plans even when my little human mind can't see them, but right now, it is just hard.
So umm...maybe...could you pray for us?
