|Molly and Harper!!|
“I want a day where I don’t hear any new bad news! I can rehash old bad news, but I need a day without new bad news.” That is what I’ve been saying to my friends and The Suze lately.
I made reference in my Peak Of The Week post that I have had a “drop to my knees” week so far. I didn’t go into specifics because it wasn’t about me specifically but my kids. But M texted me yesterday afternoon asking if was going to write about what happened to her. So with her permission, this was her Sunday.
Sunday morning, she left her apartment with her sweet pup, Harper. She stayed gone all day, and when she returned Sunday evening, she realized before even entering her place that something was wrong. She had been robbed!!
She called her landlord who came over immediately with his wife. They live on the property so luckily she didn’t have to wait very long. She also called a friend who came immediately. The police came also and started their report.
I have been so worried about her for the past few months. She ended a relationship with someone that we all love. It has been hard on her. She is now living in a big city without anyone to talk to at the end of the day to make sure that she is home- safe and sound. I’ve been worried about her going out. I’ve been worried about her getting up in the early morning hours and running to her gym. I have had that mother’s worry that I know so many understand!! I’ve prayed and prayed, but haven’t quite been able to completely give it all over to God. I still worry as if I think my worrying and obsessing over it all will make a difference!!
I’m so thankful that she wasn’t there. I’m so thankful that she didn’t walk in on them. I’m so thankful that she had sweet little Harper with her!! I have so much to be thankful for. BUT there is still a knot in my stomach!!
They took so much of her stuff. She loves expensive things- designer purses and shoes. C has spoiled us rotten by buying us these things for Christmas for the past few years! They took most of the purses and shoes. They took her laptop, important paperwork, but the hardest thing to accept is that they took so many sentimental things– like the phone she had when her dad passed away that had his voicemails on it. Those sentimental things break my heart. So many things gone- just gone. The bottom line is that when you have lost someone you love, you have experienced an Ultimate Loss- we truly live in an “after” world where so many “things” don’t matter. So yes, it is hard that she lost so much, but she really isn’t THAT upset. Like she told me, “It’s just stuff.” We are just concentrating on helping her have peace and a feeling of being safe!
She spent Monday getting things taken care of, and I tried to help where I could. By the end of the day, she sent me a text saying that this had been her anthem all day.
