These past few weeks have been filled with so many great memories, especially for our boys. We all got a nice reprieve from the challenges we face here. Even Tyler became attached to someone (other than mom) for the first time. All the memories make me smile.
I am looking forward to day when there will be no more “goodbyes” and no more tears. Today however is not that day. I have often wondered if we will ever get better at saying goodbye, but I am told from people with years of experience that it never gets easier. We rejoice in the memories we were able to make these past few weeks, but goodbyes are still difficult. This is one of those struggles that makes me long for the home God is building for us. In the meantime we would appreciate your prayers as we all say goodbye to ones we dearly love.

What wonderful memories in your pictures. I’m sure their visit was very uplifting for you. The pain of goodbyes linger but God gives the lifts when we need them and reminds us He has a sovereign plan and we will rejoice together. Our prayers are with you all. Please say hi to Ethan and Tyler. We so miss Ethan in Sunday School.

Ok, so I AM crying. But hard good-byes come because of wonderful “hellos”.
Barb Griffin says
This too made me want to cry. I celebrate your journey with praise to God for your safety and all you are learning. God bless you and your family as you go down the path God has planned for you.
This post makes me want to cry. =( It’s true….goodbyes never get easier. =( This is the WORST part of our lives. Sorry it’s such a big part of yours right now. Love you guys! Standing in this with you!
