I have tons to blog about (girlie shopping day with Meg and K on Thursday, trip to Faunia on Friday etc.) but have had precious little time for that. I have been spending as much time as I can with my friend Lisa, who has been staying with us for the last few days before she leaves to move back to California early tomorrow morning.
For her sake, I am excited about the new opportunities God is giving her. For my sake,I am not happy about this. I have watched her finish dismantling her life here over the past few days and I have been sad, sad, sad. Lisa and I have been friends for awhile, but our friendship over the past year since I moved into the city has been a huge blessing for me. Lisa is a friend who deliberately connected with Heather the person, not Heather the pastor's wife. She has been a life-line for me.
Tonight our family sat in our living room and Lisa joined in family bed-time prayers. She got the honor of going first. A few fat tears squeezed out as I held Meaghan on my lap.
Tomorrow morning very early, I'll drop Lisa at the airport. I know I'll cry on the way home.
