California Hates Me (it has stolen two of my best friends)

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.

Godspeed Lisa!

What sad news! I hate the parting of friends, but at least they are always connected in spirit.

Hope this cheers you - I just awarded you a "rockin' girl blogger" award. :) Stop on over to claim it!

Heather! You're making me cry! I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye to another friend! If it makes you feel any better I am just as lonely in California! :(
