Saturday stuff

Here we are.... our 3rd Saturday living in this house. The 2 big boys (hubby and Noah) are off for the day (or part of it) to Infineon Raceway. One of our friends from Nebraska was a big NASCAR fan and got Noah interested in it. With this place nearby, Brian figured it was a good opportunity for some male bonding and to see what all the fuss is about. Hope the boys have a good time.

I don't know what the rest of us will do today. Laundry???

The memorial service for Sarah Neal begins back in Omaha in a few minutes. I have been thinking of her and my church family there a lot this morning. I was telling Sharon earlier that I don't know if my reasons for wanting to be there are wholly unselfish ones. The grief is so intermingled.... grief for what we lost when we moved, and grief for what her family lost when someone took her from them. I'm praying that the memorial service provides some comfort and closure for my church family back there.

Here from Michele's.

I am very sorry for your loss and hope that you can find comfort and strength in the Lord.

Cripes, every time I surfed in here the date said May 30 so I thought maybe y'all had taken the long way to get here. I had to clear out my cache to find out you're here...

I am really sorry this move is sucking so much for you. It does seem to be more difficult to meet people out here...I hope you find the right church ASAP.

And I am deeply sorry about your friends' daughter. I understand about grief being wrapped around layers of other grief; it makes dealing with any single thing so freaking hard.

so sorry to hear about the girl.

Glad to read of your new house. New houses are fun!

I don't know what it is this past week. All week long its been tragedy after tragedy involving children around the country. I know children are hurt and die every day and we never hear about it but the violent crimes against children and the kids going missing that I am hearing about every single day... It's so frightening.

I'll keep your church family in my prayers.
