goodbyes // part two

There is not a single day that goes by where I am not thinking or missing my family & friends.  I miss calling up my friends at any given time & going for a walk or grabbing a coffee.  I miss the hours of conversations we all had.  I miss game nights & movie nights.  I miss our loving church family & teaching sunday school.  I miss that sweet fellowship we all shared.  I miss going to my in-laws house for dinners & laundry ;) I miss my nieces & nephew & my sisters Sara, Jill & Austin.  I even miss Molly!   I am extremely thankful to be in Virginia.  This is where God has us & I can see Him working in our lives more than ever!  Like I said in the previous post, goodbyes are hard.  You expect time to stand still in the places you have left, but reality hits you & you know that it doesn't.  Being here, there are good days, but like today, there are hard days.  To all our friends & family, we miss you so very much!

Right after we left Maui, we stopped back in Oregon to say goodbye to family & friends.  Here are just a few pictures from that short, short week we were there.
