Our last girls night out...

Jan 23, 2010

I couldn't decide if I wanted to do this now as it's quite the emotional time right now but then figured I should do it while the memory is fresh and the emotions raw...and real!

It's so hard to see Rachel and her family leaving but we are so happy for them to see what God is doing in their lives. Such bittersweetness all in one breath! Rachel and I have been friends for at least 8 years and they are years I hold very dear to my heart. She is the first person I call when just about anything happens, good and bad, and the one friend I know completely understands me even when I don't understand myself. Now that is a big task...lol! She is a treasure that I have had the priveledge of having in my daily life for many years now and that is something I don't take for granted. I know we will always remain friends and this isn't an end all but change is still hard. It's the little everyday things that I'm going to miss the most like meeting for lunch, seeing each other every Sunday, our homeschool group and so much more. I sit here realizing just how intertwined my life is with seeing her and her girls and how that is going to be so different from here on out. Sigh....

So above was our last girls night out and it was a wonderful one! We laughed like I don't think we ever had and it will be a memory that will get me (and I think the others) through the next few months of change. I love all of these girls so much and I'm so blessed to have them in my life.

Rachel...I love you friend now more than I ever even thought possible! I'm going to miss you like crazy and I look forward to the time when we will sit like this again and be able to chat face to face.

    I so understand friend. (((Heather))) Everything you wrote - and even down to the daughters being best friends. I'm sorry I missed you today and will try again tomorrow.

    Praying for God to bind up your broken heart and give you His peace.

    Love you!

    Oh friend, I DO understand this hurt. I love the quote that you shared at the end of your posting and this is so important to remember!
