Lessons From the Edge

One person can leave a big hole.

B has been moping all week because he misses her.
H can barely talk about anything besides why she left.
The dining room doesn't look the same without her scurrying around wiping tables.
I missed her at exercise class.
And our Walmart trip.
And bowling.
And she would have been at Pizza Night, too.
But she wasn't.

Last Friday, C moved away from Edgewood. She is closer to her family now and in a memory care facility where she can get the kind of attention she really needs. This move is a good thing for her. I know God is with her and taking care of her. But I'm still sad.
Just like half the people at Edgewood.
C is such a dear, dear woman and we all miss her greatly. It's like a piece of our hearts has been taken away.

Indeed, one person can leave a big hole.
