The unexpected


Many things in life come unexpected, I never thought 1 year and 2 months ago (September 8,2008) when Nick and I got together that today I would be saying goodbye, but things will continue to come unexpected, as they did today. So originally Nick was supposed to leave on November 10 for Navy bootcamp but because of Wed. Being a holiday, plans changed. It was unexpected and a day was taken away but Sunday we got a call saying he would need to be ready to leave at 12 on Monday, and while we were at church we got another call saying he needed to be ready at 4 am Monday. Nick was able to say a quick goodbye to some but unfortunately could not see many as thought for the last time. So, our time was cut short. Nick had a hair apt on Monday at 9 and obviously would now not be able to make it. So our good friends Walter, Ily, and Michelle came over and Walter cut Nicks hair. (more pictures to come) I love him so much and am so proud of him for listening to the Lords direction, but will and already do miss him so much. I am ok though, I am at home right now, studying for a test I have today, and can definitely feel the Lords strength. Thank you for you're prayers, they are much appreciated. Today he will be in San Diego and will fly out tomorrow from Illinois. I will hear his voice later tonight, 1 more phone call :) I am so thankful for the friends and family the Lord has surrounded me with! Although it will be hard, I know God will help me through and I will be ok. The countdown begins.... 9 weeks and counting....
