Good things come to those who wait. Right?
Well, I'm waiting.
My dear Breezy told me just last week that bad things happen in 3's and today I decided that he was absolutely right.
1. I lost my dear sweet friend Kimberly to her battle with AML just a few short weeks ago. It still feels like yesterday. I think about her atleast once a day, if not more. Kimberly leaves behind her husband and 6 children. Losing Kimmie was hard but gaining a new friend in her sister Amy has been priceless.
2. Our college buddy Leah went to be with the Lord after a motor vehicle accident last Tuesday. Leah leaves behind her wonderful husband Josh and their son Jansen who is 2.
3. This morning I recieved a call from my "Best German Friend" that one of our sweet sister-friends husbands was killed in a motorcycle accident. He leaves behind his wife, 3 girls and a baby that is on the way. Breezy was friends with sister-friends husband also. They worked together for many years.
My friend Christie shared with me a little peice of wisdom from her Grandmother this afternoon (after spending most of the day with me); "Not every day is good, but there is good in everyday." I guess she is right. I appreciate her wise thinking, especially when I feel like there couldn't be one thing positive about a day like today.
I am so thankful that I was able to have phone conversations with SEVERAL of my sister-friends who have been a apart of our lives since we moved to Germany in 2006. We've stuck together thru some pretty tough times (right girls) and even though we are not all together today we're still together in our hearts. We ARE the Playboys!!!
I wanted to drop everything this morning and jump on an airplane to Germany to be with my sister-friend but I decided that it wasn't what I was suppose to do. Sad Day. My girl is surrounded right now by some of the most amazing ladies I have ever met. I do not worry at all about her and her girlies being taken care of. It is all in God's hands.
It's time for bed. I'm exhausted, physically and emotionally.
Peace be with you.
