We took the boys out to dinner. I think it was the first time our puppy nephew was out to eat here in Germany. He was so sweet. He always is. It was pretty funny though, we sat outside with the boys, and we were sitting inside the tented area. And the boys were afraid of the curtain thing, it was pretty funny. Except they're both such weenies that they started shaking. **rolls eyes** -- Anyway, the German guy suggested I shut the curtains. So I did.
I just can't get over it. It's not even happening to me and I feel so much. Her WHOLE life is changed. Her husband's whole life is changed. But they are so strong. And they have an amazing support group, all over the world. They are amazing people, and I know that they are going to figure everything out. Because they are amazing.
I am a bit sad that my friend had to leave Germany though, pretty selfish of me, no? But, I am. I wish I had spent a bit more time with her, while they were here. It's so easy to say that now. But I suppose, life happens.
I guess the biggest thing that really makes me think, is that... my friends aren't the only Military Family whose life has changed so dramatically. These events happen all the time. And that's scary. But true. I feel these events so much deeper now, I think.
All in all, even though she is now on a different continent than I am, I hope I can be a good friend and supporter for her and her husband. I told my husband that I didn't want these people out of my life now that they aren't going to be moving from place to place like me. I want to keep them in my life. They are amazing people. She and I had a very deep friendship. And I will not throw that away. I told husband that if we're in the states anytime, that we need to make sure and go to them. I want to do that.
