Bittersweet

Today I got a phone call that my husband got the long awaited promotion without even having to interview, praise God.

I also got a call that my sweet Gigi went to be with Jesus this afternoon. I am rejoicing that she is pain free but saddened for her absence here on earth. My parents get into town on Wednesday and will be here for a week.

God is faithful.

Love you, my friend. I am so glad your parents are coming into town. They need you as much as you need them. I'm praying for you and know how your heart hurts right now. But, as you know, your GiGi is dancing with the angels praising Jesus right now. The song "Holy Holy Holy" will take on a whole new meaning now. (the first time I sang that phrase after my grandpa died I bawled my eyes out...but it was also a happy cry) You have so many friends that love and adore you, but please let me know if I can do anything for you as well. :) And - congratulations to Brett and your family for the promotion. God is GOOD!
