Emergency Fresno Trip

10 Jul

Thursday night at about 7:00pm I was talking to my friend Gina, who lives in Fresno, on the phone and suddenly knew I had to make an emergency Fresno trip.

 Here is some back story which you may or may not already know:  My best friend in the wide world, Robin, is moving to Washington D.C.  I posted about it a few weeks ago, but then when Robin informed me that they had not yet told their church (her husband Mike is the youth pastor), I quickly took it down after a day.

I am super sad but very excited about what God is doing with her and her family.

So Thursday night when Gina was telling me that she was helping Robin pack up her house while at the same time having some moments of emotional difficulty, I knew I needed to be there.

I had the same feeling I had when my grandparents were dying and I wasn’t there, and Gina had her first baby and I wasn’t there.  I wasn’t missing this one.

So, I packed a bag in 20 minutes, called my husband (who told me that if I just waited a few minutes to come home he would come with me) and we left.

I know it was just packing, but, I was glad to be there for my friend.

It was a quick trip.  We got there at midnight Thursday and then left Friday evening.

Every minute I can get with my BFF I am very thankful for. 

I am also thankful for my husband who is willing to cancel meetings and follow me on my sometimes crazy endeavors.

    I could never explain how much this meant to me. This is a crazy journey and I am so thankful you have made a point to be a part of it. You truly are an amazing best friend and its this kind of intentionality that assures me we can be true friends from afar……although we will miss meeting you and Bogie at Dland!
