Too much has happened today. My little eyes are all cried out.
We had plans today to look at a house on our lunch break. Great house, great location, great price. Super cute and pretty with a big yard. I was thinking that this could be it. Around 11:00 we were informed that we shouldn't bother going to see the house because - you guessed it - the seller's had just accepted an offer this morning.
Y'all I had just about had it. Tears started a-flowing. I know that crying doesn't help anything but I was just DONE. I felt like giving up and just deciding to live in this apartment for the next 30 years. I mean, I understand that this house was not meant for us but this is the THIRD time this has happened in the span of about a month and I am just so exhausted and frustrated.
After I had a good cry, I got myself together and was reminded by my sweet friend Lynn that the Lord is good and that He loves me. I took a deep breath and said "Okay Lord, I trust You".
And now I am sad again. Not because of a house, but because of something much more life-altering. Our sweet precious Katie & Mo left us tonight. We said goodbye as they begin their move back to St. Croix. I am so proud of them for what they are choosing to do. They know they need to be with his family. I am so proud of Katie for the sacrifices she is making and for the way she is supporting her husband. It all just happened so fast and it was hard to say goodbye. We sat here on our couch and held hands and prayed and we all cried and hugged and UGH I just have no more tears left. I am going to miss our friends.
The only positive thing about them leaving us is that they are leaving us with their 50 inch plasma TV since they are worried it would get damaged on the boat ride there. Grant is enjoying playing his video game on such a large screen!
Tomorrow I will have some fun birthday pictures to share with you. I am just exhausted tonight and am going to hit the sack a bit early tonight. Love y'all.
