The Ones Left behind

Today that happened again for the 2nd time this year and let me tell you it stinks. My best friend B and her family moved back to the states. B was more like a sister and her son and my oldest son were best friends. My heart is broken tonight. I'm praying Chad is able to get online or call, because that would truly help to hear his voice. Pray for my children and me through this. To be completely honest, we're all hurting and thankfully my boys seem to be handling it better than me actually. Maybe it's because I see the bigger picture of how long it may be until I see her again. We will see each other again and I will pull out of this slump, for tonight and maybe a couple more my heart is heavy, it hurts to breath, there's a lump in my throat, and the tears are coming very easily. Bed is calling my name early tonight.

I know it's been a while, a long while. I talked to Chad a couple days ago and he was doing really good! I could literally HEAR the smile in his voice and let me tell you that was so good! He'd been having a rough time of it the last couple of weeks before this.

We're about to hit month 6 here in a few days. In ways it amazes me that we're at month 6, because it feels like he's been gone forever, yet it's starting to go by quicker. I guess because the kids and I have quite a bit going on.

Thank you to each and every one of you who's been praying for Chad and continue to pray for him. It IS appreciated more than you'll ever know! I told him so many were praying for him (the other evening) and he told me that he can honestly FEEL those prayers surrounding him! Isn't God just so good and gracious in allowing him to actually feel your love and concern? Amazing I tell you! :)

God Bless
