Love Letter to Brenner Pass

(Note: For those who don't understand all the Mormon lingo in this post, here's the shorthand. For a time I was the leader of my congregation's - Brenner Pass - women's group, and this post is deidcated to those women.)

Dear women of the Brenner Pass ward:

Last week I attended my new ward's Relief Society birthday activity. We had an amazing dinner and beautiful music. I had fun chatting with my new friends. But, sitting there and looking around at all of the women, I felt like something was missing. I realized that there were so many women I didn't know and whose lives I knew almost nothing about. And, I missed you, deeply.

For that moment I remembered how close I felt to all of you and the love I had for each one of you. I shared so many moments of joy with you and moments of sadness and pain. I knew your children and your husbands. I knew your worries and I worried with you.

As much as I love our new ward, there is a hole in my heart without you. Thank you for letting me into your lives and for being my friends and my sisters. I miss you terribly. I wanted you to know that. But, most of all, I wanted you to know that I love you.

I know the feeling. It's hard to move. I hope with time you make great friends in your new ward. xoxo.

WHAT!? You moved again!? Where are you now?

Lorie misses you, too, even though it has been so many, many years!

So sweet! I miss you all! We miss you! So much has changed. New RS President, people moving in and out! :) Life is sometimes a revolving door but the longer we stay in one place, I guess we develop a closeness to those around us. You will with your great ward family up there in time! :)
