Be Thankful...will you join me?
TOP’s Tuesday is an opportunity to turn the focus on Heidi in a more personal way and update you on current happenings. For the past few years, this blog has focused more on my writing and speaking. Last Thursday, our journey, my journey, took a sharp turn.
One friend, whose sister is also missing, messaged to say, “This looks like a ‘fasten your seat belts and hang on’ kind of roller coaster”. You’ve heard me use the roller coaster analogy before as it pertains to the families’ journey as they wait when a loved one is missing. As I read my friend’s message, I smiled. This is someone who knows exactly how it feels and what we are going through, as she’s experienced this in her life too. She brought a smile to my face because it is a perfect description to past few day's events.
There are many news stories circulating via the Internet, television, radio, and in the print newspapers. What do you believe? I don’t know. The press continues to contact us in hopes of a statement or interview. We are grateful my aunt and uncle were on scene the first couple days, so my parents didn’t have to, and they kept us in the loop the entire day. This was a huge blessing and help.
As the family follows the progress, breaks, and stories closely, my parents opt to wait before doing interviews with the press. They have asked the entire family to wait alongside them until we have more information.
For today…we wait. Thank you for respecting our privacy.
He stilled the storm to a whisper;
Share at least one thing you are thankful for as you wait...
