Five hours into this morning I woke from a weird dream. Tried to figure it out and wound up crying for a bit in the bathroom. Once done I crawled back into the coziness of my blankets. Wishing to warm up I also stayed awake as it is early shift for me. It's worse to go back to sleep for half hour than stay awake. I slowly put covers away from me so as not to wake Phil. House was chilly and only 51 degrees outdoors. My day's beginning with sorrow in my heart. But then there's all the good memories from the Long Beach Washington t-shirt I chose from my closet. Our big 60th birthday girl getaway two years ago. Beth, Laura, Sandy and me travelling together to Sandy's house on the beach in WA. Other thoughts linger too. Thankful that Beth and I were able to visit Laura last month. It was a good visit together. We suspected it would be last one. I'm so thankful to God to have these friends in my life for so many years. We figured we were 5 years old and were in VBS together at a church in town. Same school all our years. Birthday partys Sleepovers. Beth and I were in choir in high school. We like to sing. Kept in touch once we graduated. Birthday cards. Christmas cards. Letters written back and forth to Laura while she was overseas as a missionary Dr for years. So many good memories keep her alive in my heart. Thankful Laura suggested we get together in May. We had a nice lunch together. I never posted that event.
Thanks so much for your prayers for Laura. I know her mom and sister need prayer. Karen, her sister, died last Sept from cancer. Now Laura's died.
Thankful that Megan's going to rfid tag books again for a few months. She still needs a full time job.
I'll be back soon when I'm more awake and less stressed. I need to finish addressing our anniversary invitations. Mail them tomorrow. A good portion were already given out. Have a blessed rest of your week.
