Roller Coasters

Roller coasters are not something I really like whether they be wooden, steel or emotional. Right now the roller coaster ride I am on is an emotional one and I don't really like it but I don't see the end of the ride and I don't know how to get off.
One month ago I lost my best friend and you know what? It still hurts so bad. In talking with friends the last two days helped me realize how much she impacted other people's lives. Last night a young lady at church commented to me about how she is amazed that when she sees us (us being myself, my hubby, my Dad and my sister Rae cause B doesn't live here), she sees that although she knows we miss Mom terribly, we can still smile, be friendly, and can do it without tears. She said that she would be crying. Well, I assured her that we all did a lot of that and sometimes even at church, you just don't see it. A couple of weeks ago, I cried through the entire service.
Although today was a hard day, the middle part of the day was good. Today I went to Mrs. H's house for lunch. Oh my it was good. We had homemade chicken salad sandwiches (yummy), pickles, pretzels, fruit salad and homemade lemonade. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Then, Mr and Mrs. H and I went on an adventure. My oh my what fun we had. Sorry, can't tell you about it. Maybe Mrs. H will! Then we went back to their lovely home and had lemon mousse. Again, very yummy. Then we just sat and talked for a while. Very nice, very relaxing, very enjoyable. Thank you Mrs. H. I really enjoyed today.
As you can see, I have not blogged in a couple of days and I had to catch up both blogs. I had a really hard time with Mom's tonight. I have so much to say but I don't know how to get it put on "paper". And sometimes I am not sure if people really want to hear what I have to say.
Anyway, Mr. Giggles is off tomorrow and we will be working on getting fliers out for our upcoming Gospel Meeting. Once that is done, we will just enjoy being together and running errands. I really enjoy the days he is off and we can spend it together.
Well, that is all for tonight. I am ready for some shut eye!

Hi Mrs. H's mom :)

Since I am so lost at what to say or do when I know how you are hurting, I'm glad to know that at least we were able to be a bright spot in a difficult day. It was so very special to me that you were part of the adventure! I will always remember that. :-)

I know this is a very hard time for you...I don't know how I would react if I were in your shoes. But, to me, it seems like all your feelings are completely natural. Please know that I'll be praying for you this weekend.

So glad that you were able to get away for a little while with Mr. and Mrs. H. :) What a blessing to have such good friends.
