here's the tricky part our family loves the murrays. matt & i keep saying this is like a bad break up. you know it is coming. you see it, far off, but you see it. our times together a getting limited. they have moved further away now to live with in-laws to free up financing from a mortgage. we will miss them. the mcgarity clan will be missing a piece once march comes. sunday mornings will be different. the habits of friendship will slip into a long distance friendship, worlds apart. this bad break up will be sad, we will miss the six murrays we have come to know and love so deeply. here it will be different, there in costa rica it will be different. i can not think of any better "break-up" than this one. there will be great gain in this: there will be orphans lives, childrens salvation, their needs, fresh water...living water. so let the end come ever so slowly but ever so quickly.
so that's the murray family, but i want to address the cassie issue of her leaving. cassie is my encourager. she has become part of my heart in some strange way that no other friend has. we are the exact same and the exact opposite. her strengths are my weaknesses. cassie keeps me on track, she checks in. she lifts me up and i know she senses when i am tapped. we laugh, it's a good thing. i think of her, pray for her, want to see her. time, circumstance and distance will not change that. i love her! so here's to the gift of facetime, let's pray for costa rica to have wi-fi!
