sad news - happy news

Wow! 3 posts in one week! What is my life coming to?! Just wanted to post a few pictures and share some moments. My dear friend, Deanna, left for Ireland this morning. I miss her already. She is truly a once in a lifetime kind of friend. The "girls" got together on Wednesday to say goodbye. We went down to Newport on the Levee. It was a memory-making event for sure. I know she will be a wonderful pastor's wife and the people in Ireland are going to love her!

My parents are now homeowners! They closed on their first home yesterday. As you can tell from their faces they are ecstatic! It really is a miracle how everything has worked out. I am sooo excited for them! The house sits on 1 acre and is absolutely perfect for them with a big garage and a barn which my dad will love to tinker around in. It has lots of flower beds which my mom will love. It has a a super-wide sidewalk all the way to the end of the property which the grandkids will love for riding bikes, scooters, and skating. And some big trees which I'm sure one of them will have a treehouse built in it very soon. Congratulations Dad & Mom!! We are so happy for you!

Congrats to your parents! Buying your first house is a forever-remember memory!

Good thoughts about Deanna! She will be a great asset to Mark in Ireland, we know.

Congrats to your mom and dad! Julie just told us about this the other night. They look estatic...I can feel the energy radiating from the photo. That is awesome!

That's sad/happy that Deanna has left. The reason I say "happy" is because I know that she will touch lives for Jesus in Ireland that she could not have touched living in the USA. The sad part is ...I'm sorry that you "girls" can't get together very often now! =(

I'm soooo happy for your parents! That's GREAT!! My parents have just moved to pastor in Westfield, IN and so I'm sure they'll get to see your parents more often now! =D

Have a great weekend,
Love, Heather =)
