My trip to NC…..

I’m in nc right now visiting my dad for a few days. He’s got to have surgery on one of his eyes at Duke. Coming home isn’t so easy…..I walk into the house and expect mom to be there too. Most of her stuff is gone, but the few things that remain remind me. There aren’t even words to say how much I miss her! I’ve lost my mom, but also one of my best friends and confidants.

I am so thankful to be able to have a good relationship with my dad! I have gotten to know him much more through everything that’s happened and we are much closer now.

Sometimes I hear parents and their children arguing about the dumbest things. I just want to go up to them and say, ” Please just be thankful you have each other!” It’s easy to get sucked into the craziness of life, but oh how important it is to thank God for the people we love! I am blessed to have an awesome family, friends and “new” friends I meet all the time through my work. The brides and grooms and their families are a blessing to me and have helped me through so much.

Thank you all for being in my life and loving me! 🙂

  • Gina Calvin - Juliet, I am sorry I have been so busy with the stress in my life that I haven’t had time to be a better friend to you. You have truly been through so much this past year. I love you, and can’t wait to have our girl talks over coffee in the morning next week. See you Sunday afternoon! Love, Gina 🙂
