Well Abi, Ryan and Finn left early this morning.  
So very hard to see them go. 
 San Francisco is such a long ways away.  
Christmas is over.   
The extra special days
{that only come once or twice a year}. 
 The days that ya’ wish would never end. 
 All the excitement and festivities and then life
 just kind of crashes {at least in my world}. 
Along with all that, many I love are struggling. 
 Curve balls they didn’t expect.  
Emotional pain. 
 I keep crying all day. 
 Elizabeth wants to know what’s wrong? 
 Sweet baby girl. 
 She said, “Why are you crying Mommy? 
You have water around your eyes.”  
So if it’s okay with everyone, let’s save Memorial Box Monday for next week. 
For tomorrow, I am hoping to write about another arm of the ministry Dw and I are forming.

  1. I totally get the after Christmas blues! it's such anticipation for so long…magical, and then in a blink of an eye it's all over. Sad!! now we just have a long cold winter to get through 🙁

  2. Aww, Praying for you. It's ok to cry! You know, you are showing your littles that you love and cherish your family and that it is ok to give your whole heart even if it means you will hurt when they are not with you.
    Do we need to start praying little Finn and his mom and dad back to CO?!!

  3. Oh Linny,
    I know how hard it is to let those babies go… my heart positively breaks when my kids come and then have to leave again. It really, really hurts.
    Prayers that He will comfort your heart during this time!

  4. you are such a pillar of strength. I'm sure it is hard for the kids to see you upset, but I always think it is important for us to show them that we have emotions too. I pray that the situations that are hurting your heart today are resolved in positive ways to the glory of God.

  5. Why does it have to be so hard after the holidays? I totally know what you are saying and don't even have the loved ones to say goodbye to. Sending you a hug and I am emailing you an amazing story of God's work in the lives of two orphans to try and put a smile on your face! – Charissa
