The last of my children have moved out!

Well accept for David, but that dosn’t count! Kelly has moved to KC to live with her sister and work in the city. I know that she will suceed at whatever she does, but I am going to miss her spunky personality and her sweet ways. She would deny that she has sweet ways, but she does! I loved having her with us for the extra time we got. She was supposed to leave for boot camp last August and every week and month we have gotten extra have been a gift. She didn’t end up going into the Navy but that is ok, I know her steps are being directed by the Lord. I miss you my sweet girl and it has only been an hour since you drove out of the driveway! Holly will be blessed having you in her home and I am so thankful that you two get this time together! So now I will put on my big girl panties and get on with life and the new season that I get to experience!

Childhood best friends…

I had a wonderful best friend for all of my middle school and high school years. She was someone I spent hours with, we were always together, told eachother everything that was going on in our life. Then we graduated and we went our separate ways. I have not spoken with her for probably 25 years and now I will never be able to again on this earth. March 1, 2013 she died at the age of 47. You would think that having not seen or talked with her for 25 years that this would not have such an impact on me, but the fact of the matter is that we shared a bond that the years did not diminish for me. I could have picked up the phone at any time and we would have been able to talk, she would have responded to me as her friend and not as a stranger, as I would have to her. Her family is not telling what happened to her, they are only telling that she died. I do kmow a gun was involed, which makes it very suspicious that they are being so secretive. They said that they are only celebrating her life, how she died is not important. So, my best friend from my youth is dead from a gun accident and what happened to her is not important? Only that we celebrate the years we had with her? REALLY? There are things that are weird about her obit as well…only one sister is mentioned and was mentioned as a daughter first and then it was changed to sister. It is just weird and odd. Bothers me, makes me question the death of my young friend, was she murdered? Was it suicide? Was it a terrible accident? And what is the harm in telling the truth? They are entitled to their privacy, I have not asked again and I wont ask anymore about the events surrounding her death,but not knowing makes it harder to move past the event. Closure is for more than just the family. Friends have need of closure to. Just wanted to get that off my chest.
