Then we had the graveside service. Afterwards we (me,my Mom, and my 3 sisters) noticed my Dad and our husbands were huddled together in a circle, with arms around one another, praying. Today was also the day of good-byes for Patrick and Josh, too, as they leave for St. Barths in the morning. It was so sweet to see our "guys" praying together, and then shedding some tears as they said good-bye.
One of the things written in a letter from my Grandma, that she wanted read after her death, admonished our family to remember to "Stay Together" I'm so thankful for my family! I love the time we have together, and the way we work together. I praise the Lord that my family all belong to the same church and serve the Lord together. God's been so good to me!
Pray for Patrick and Josh. Pray for safety. Pray for an easy adjustment. I think they're excited about spending some "guy-time' together.
So, this is our last week here. We have a ton of things and our "Must-Do" list, and even more on our "Want-to-do" list. I know it will be super busy, but I'm looking forward to one more week with my Dad, Mom, and sisters and their families. Thank you Lord, for this time!
