Praying it up

I'm here at Starbucks.  I finished work early and had the urge to come here.  My plans were to sip iced coffee and read.  But, it's just not happening.  My thoughts are elsewhere.  Normally I don't like to write this kind of stuff on here, but it is just sitting on my heart right now.  My thoughts (and prayers) are with one of my small group girls.  Actually, I can say that she is a dear friend.  And she is awesome.  This girl is one of the most coolest/nicest/smartest/talented/caring people that I have ever met.  Seriously.  You may think you are nice and what not, but she takes the cake on this one.  Best part though- she has no idea just how stellar she is.  She has one of the sweetest relationships that I have ever seen.  Her best friend is her grandfather.  And they are for real friends.  I've never heard someone talk about another as she talks about her grandfather.  Side note- they are such a cool family.  I love them all.  End side note.  Well, he just passed away today and I can't even imagine what she is feeling right now.  I wish that I could go give her the biggest hug ever and tell her all these really great things, but I can't.  All I can offer for now are prayers.  So I am sending them out.  In full force.  To Dapa and family.  It's weird, I haven't felt like crying in like 4 years, but all I want to do is cry.  I just hate the thought of her being sad.  Breaks my heart.
