Goodbye, Peanut!

27 09 2009

Today was rough. God bless Margo for putting up with me on the plane ride home yesterday. I was either sleeping or crying the whole time. This situation sucks.

After talking to my mom on the phone late last night about everything that is going on, I started praying that I wouldn’t have to go to church by myself today. I just prayed that God would give me a friend. “I don’t even care if it’s some random stranger who sits by me and is nice,” I prayed, “I just need a friend.”

When I got to church I sat down, and as soon as the first song started the tears were falling again. As the second song started I prayed again, pleading with God to give me a friend. Just then, I looked up and Sara was standing at the end of my row waving for me to come sit by her. I literally erupted into tears as she hugged me. Once I calmed down she asked me how I had seen her. Puzzled, I asked what she meant. “I heard you calling me,” she said. “That’s why I started looking around for you.”

Ha! “I had no idea you were here, Sar,” was about all I could manage to say.

After church I endured a few hours of hell before I got to meet my family in Big Rapids. It was great to see everyone, but it was extra nice to get to hold Caitlin one last time before I leave! I just love her so much! She is going to be so big when I get home; I’ll miss her (and everyone else, too)!

Me with my peanut.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this site with me, Amy. It’s a privilege to travel with you through it and this story about you and Sara in church has filled my eyes with tears. He hears our cries – no matter what continent we’re currently leaving a footprint on. Love you!
