Brett left this morning for Indiana. I am not sure of when I will see him again so it was hard to say good-bye. Jane woke up and immediately wrote a letter for him but was disappointed to see that he had already left. I guess I don't really know how much these little kids are affected by all the change in their lives lately, but I think little Jane is the most sensitive to it. Life is full of change and Brett always says that we can embrace it or kick and scream. It is our choice. Sometimes I'd really like to kick and scream.
But I have learned over this past year that with change comes blessings. I can't deny the blessings that have been poured out upon me this year. It has strengthened my testimony and I feel it has prepared me for a new life away from home and without my biggest support, my mom. And although I would give it all up to see my mom again, I know she is there and this is the plan. Now all I have to do is embrace it.
I miss you Mom, especially at times like these.
We miss you Brett.
