I am so thankful for my daughter and my best friend Karen. Karen left Iowa today to head back to Kansas. She is now closer to her family. Makes me terribly sad, as the last 5 years or so she has been close enough for a short drive to visit. Now she is something like 10 hours from me. Bummer. But I am so thankful to have her in my life. She has been my sister by heart. We have been through a lot together. She is my daughter’s adopted Auntie. Karen is a true auntie to her niece down in Kansas, so she will get to be with little E while she grows now. That is exciting. God brought us together to be the best of friends. God is so good to me.
Just a sad day that she is now not within driving distance in a moments notice. Thank goodness for email, skype, cell phones, and other electronic devices that will let us stay in touch.
Here are a couple photos…..both are on the weekend we celebrated K’s birthday.
So, even though sad, very thankful heart for wonderful friendships.
Life is good. God is good.
