God truly gives us what we need when we need it. I've had a hard week...more like a hard month. And so much of it is re-direction that God is doing in my life and it's just been hard. Tonight I got to eat dinner with SuzAnne, Lisa and Jennifer and all our kids. It was so good for me to get out and have a play date. Tomorrow I'm going to a Bar-B-Q at my friend's Eric and Roxanne's house. Then we will go to Tahoka, because my mom and Madi have a piano recital. My mom will be playing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and Madi will be singing. It's going to be so cute. I knew all of that already, but then my mom called me tonight and told me to call Sheila and see if I could come to Abilene on Sunday night to get away. I immediately jumped at the chance. In an effort to surprise me, Sheila called Jenny to see if she could come from Dallas. I know this because, I had actually texted Jenny while she was on the phone with Sheila. So while it won't be a surprise, I will get to spend time with them both!!! And I just got off the phone with Jenny and she said she's going to do my hair for me while we're there together. Then, my babysitter, Ashley called me and asked is she could come pick up the kids tomorrow morning to take them to the park, because it had been a while since she had seen them. And no, she's not asking me to pay her. She does things like this for me, just because she's so nice and because she likes my kids.

Y'all I can't tell you how bad I need this right now. I will get through this...I won't give up. Life has sucked lately, but I will keep saying it, God is good. He does bless us and He does love us. What we feel and experience in life that hurts so much has purpose. I don't know the purpose and I'm not able to look back yet, with what I'm currently going through and able to see His plan, but I have the faith to know He has a plan. I hope y'all all have a great weekend...I know I will!

I hope you had fun on your getaway, too! What a blessing to have a community of friends and family that can help pick you up when you are struggling!

It was great to see you yesterday-I was really hoping I would find you to hug your neck...sorry I could not chat longer but I had to run off to Broadway for the other Senior Sunday! Maybe next time I am in town we can do lunch or ice cream or something :)

You are right, God is most definitely good and He has a plan for both of us!! I look forward for His revelation soon! :)

Blessings, friend~
