So Far Away…

Today I am too far away. How do we handle it when we can’t be where we want or need to be?

I want to be with my very best friend today. She’s my soul sister, my sistachick, my calming voice, my “let’s do something very ornery together!”, my “it’s okay if you feel that way”, my “my house is a mess, but if you don’t mind folding a few clothes so you have a place to sit…come on over”, my “I’ll take your kids for a while so you don’t kill them”, my “my heart breaks for you”….kind of friend. I love her and her family to the moon. And today, I want to be by her side.

She probably doesn’t need me, I’m sure she’s surrounded by many who love her. But….if I were with her, she would feel my strength. She would know I love her. She would maybe catch a glimpse of me off to the side, and know that I would do anything for her. And today, I am so far away.

So Kelly, know that today I think of you, and I pray and I pray and I pray. And I’m here for the phone call, when all the dust has settled. And that more than anything, I wish I were with you.

About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!

    Kelly’s brother is married to my bestest friend’s daughter. We go back a long ways and I have watched Stacey grow up into a wonderful wife to Clay and mother to 5 beautiful kids. I have them in my prayers today too.
