I am glad to be home. Last week was definitely an emotionally draining one, so I ended up arriving back home a couple days earlier than I was supposed to for Thanksgiving break. There have been a lot of things going on lately that have been weighing on me and it's been a little difficult to endure, but I am not going to let it get the best of me. Just please pray for me and for the situations that have occurred recently that need prayer...
First, please continue to pray for the Brutton and Hessel families. I watched the funeral stream live on the internet. What a blessing Kathy's life was and continues to be! I have devoted my last few blogs in Kathy's honor, so please look back at those if you don't know what I'm talking about.
Second...I don't want to be all discreet, but I feel in this situation it is necessary...a dear friend of mine is going through something that is very sad and draining and I wish she would never have to go through. I gave her a call last Friday and decided that I needed and wanted to come back to see her. She has always been there for me and it would be the least I could do just to see her in person and try to comfort her. We only got to spend a couple hours together before she had other family events to attend, but I am thankful regardless that we got to hang out.
Thanks for reading and your prayers.
Anyway - I am definitely glad to be home! My family always has a lot of fun around the holidays and I'm anxious to continue to the traditional festivities. We have been decorating for Christmas and my mom and I have been planning for Thanksgiving. It ends up being a two-day cooking fest for the dinner we have on Thursday. Can't wait!
Peace and God Bless
