Coming Home

OK, so (after a little pressure from some friends) I decided to give this a try (for my few friends who don't keep up with me through MySpace and Facebook). I got to come home (to Valdosta for all of you who don't know that) today. I work night shift so, obviously, I sleep during the day. Well, when I woke up around seven on Friday I had 18 missed calls. Most of from which were friends and family here in Valdosta. I knew something was wrong and dialed Gin Gin to find out what it was. That was when she told me that Melissa had, had some complications on Thursday and Janey had made her enterance on Friday morning. For any of you who don't know who Melissa is, she has been my friend longer than any of my other friends. Our parents went to school together and then we started school together in pre k at Georgia Christian and graduated together in 1998. I love her and she married John Hick, who I love just as much and feel like I've known just as long. I wish that this blog would help me put into words how I felt at Janey (their daughter)'s funeral today. At that moment there was nothing that I could think of that I wouldn't have done to take their pain away or just ease it. Anyways, I left work at 4:30 this morning and got here about 20 mins before the service was to start. I love and miss all of "my people" here and that longing was even more severe today. I love my home and am so thankful to have people like John and Meli in my life. I hope you all remember them in your prayers.
OK, this was a lot for a blog, I know I got a little wordy (is that even a real word?). But, I had a lot to talk about since this was my first one AND so much is going on. We'll see how this blog thing goes.
