Joan and Bri headed home before we got up this morning. Joni and I had been working on a puzzle during their visit (as we often do) and she finished it after I went to bed last night. Well, actually, she saved the last piece for me. What a gal. I love these two women immensely. Please pray for me right now.
I am feeling the emotion of having to say good bye, again, to all those people I love so dearly. I could use the Lord's extra support right now. Yesterday, we got together at the park with Joia and her kiddos and after some lunch at Chik-Fil-A, Joan said she needed to go say good bye to Joia as she didn't know when she might see her again. I walked to my van while they said good bye and felt myself getting emotional -- trying to contemplate not having Joia around seems unfathomable to me. And yet I know it is going to happen. Soon. My parents. The wifia. Joan. Bri. So many good byes. Again.
