A bit ago Clint was gone overnight. I was out with the girls much passed their bedtime.
Evee was asleep before I even put the car in reverse to come home.
As I drove home I tried to decide who I would bring in first from the car (since both needed to be carried) and how I'd get them both in the house and to bed.
I have a friend. She also has 2 girls. She moved from many states away about 3 years ago. 3 weeks after they arrived she lost her husband suddenly. Today it's been 3 years since that day.
On nights like tonight I think of her more than usual. What it must be like to think through it all (life), all the time.
And she is such a strong woman, very brave. She has the most beautiful spirit and is lovely. But, I know she hurts and I hurt with her. I wish that her burden could be a bit lighter. Praying that I can see the pain around me and be in it with others. Praying for wisdom to know what "being in it" even means.
