Dear Maileen...

Dear Maileen,

It sucks that we cannot be physically with you, but please know that we are always thinking about you and praying for you daily.  I know it sounds cheesy, but it's true.  I am thankful that you are able to be with Peter and Marissa right now, even though it is only for a short time.  Being surrounded by love is an awesome healer.

I would also like to thank you for our friendship.  I know we haven't been close during the early part of our lives (because we lived so far apart), but with the help of technology (primarily SKYPE),  I have
felt closer than ever to my mom's side of the family and it's because of you.  I love our long conversations about our lives, our loves and our children.  I am so thankful that I can share that with you.I know that these past few months have been a roller coaster.  And I know that the next few months are going to be difficult.  But always remember that God is always with you.

"Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."  (Joshua 1:9)

So we will keep praying with you.  "For with God nothing will be impossible."  (Luke 1:37)

With love always,
