We have had another busy weekend, but nothing fun to report.
I went shopping on Friday with my mom and my girls. We were able to buy a couple of things for Christmas. I got a call while we were shopping letting me know that one of my best friends and Maggie & Ellie's adopted Gammy (back in our old hometown) had lost her husband. I cried right there in Walmart and The Muffin was so concerned about what had happened. I told her a little later and she was heartbroken and confused.
I'd appreciate your prayers. I want to explain things in the best way so that I can help Muff understand death and Heaven. I want her to understand why he won't be there on our next visit. I want my sweet, special friend to be okay knowing that her husband is now breathing easier and I'm sure, fishing. I want to be with her and feel useful. Mostly, my heart just aches.
Big Daddy and I left The Muffin and Ellie with my mom and sister today so that we could go to the visitation and the funeral.
