This week is going to be hard.
Well, more like the beginning of next week.
Why you ask?
Nick leaves for the Navy on Monday.
He's like my brother-in-law.
When I first met him, I had no idea how close he would become to me. How much he would feel like family.
Because we are family.
And what's even harder than that...is that my big sister and niece will leave later this year, and right now, we don't even know where.
My heart is hurting, friends. Those three are family. They mean so much to me.
I'm so proud to call them family. Because what they're doing is incredible. They're following what God is calling them to do even if they have no idea where it will take them (literally). It's a brave thing what they're doing.
And I'm going to miss them. So, so, so very much.
Friends- don't pray for me. I've made it through the last(almost eight months), I can make it through this. Pray for Nick, Amanda and sweet miss Harper(good gracious- isn't she the CUTEST thing?!). Pray they would feel the Lord's comforting arms around them. Pray for Amanda during these next few months while Nick is away.
Thank you for what you're doing, Nick. Thank you for taking care of my sister. And on another note- thank you for trusting me with your baby. That means more than you can imagine.
I can't wait to see what God is going to do through your family.
But most of all, I'm going to miss you guys a whole, whole lot.
Love, Bailey Elizabeth
