missing Lauren

Well, it finally happened. All of Lauren's visa paperwork was finalized and they allowed her to go back to Sudan yesterday.

My life will never be the same.

She already sent us a thank you note, because that's just the kind of person she is. 

But we're the grateful ones. We should write a thank you note to the universe for giving us a good friend and somehow aligning all the stars just right so she could stay with us for an extended period of time.

Who knows? Maybe one day everything will fall into place and we'll be neighbors again just like we were several moons ago in the Welch dorm at Gonzaga University....

One can dream.

  1. What a nice post, Katherine! Love the pictures on Lauren's card. Maybe the stars will align again--you never know! Andrew and I were seated in front of your godson & Anita at the end of school prayer service on Thursday. Anita told him we were friends and I asked him if he knew Graham. His eyes lit up and a huge smile spread across his face. :) Excited to see you 4 in a few weeks! Glad you are enjoying the end of your time in Italy!!
