I have friends here in Georgia, but not many of the kind of friends that I can tell anything to.
But, I have a confession.....I am kinda bummed.....
A very good friend of mine, Jamie, and her hubby, Nick, are being stationed over in Germany.
I know that this is a great opportunity for them and something that they had requested, but I am bummed!!! They have been wanting this for a while and I am very happy for them.
BUT - I am sad.
We met Nick and Jamie through our Church and they attended our Bible Study at our house for a while. Jamie was the friend that I could call and talk to her about any.thing. She wouldn't judge, she would listen and give advice if I asked for it. She was a great prayer companion and just an overall "GOOD EGG". So, I will miss her terribly!!! Nick is a good guy too and he and Ben got along rather well! They even liked hanging out with Nathan and helped me with his 3rd birthday party! Good People....those Whitakers!
I did get to see them on Friday for a little bit, but I feel like I didn't really get to hug Jamie goodbye or anything like that. I hope that I will see her before she leaves and give her a squeeze. I wish them the best of luck over there and I hope to see them again someday. I do know that we will keep in touch via Facebook and hopefully they will get a webcam and we can Skype with each other. The cool thing is technology is a great thing and we can keep in touch that way!
Good Luck Jamie and Nick! You will be missed terribly and we are truly blessed to call you FRIENDS....
