Saying Goodbye Again

Today was a tough one for me. I had to say goodbye to two close friends this morning after coffee because they both might be gone before I come back from my trip. I am going to miss them terribly and our days will not be the same without them. A and R are friends I have know for a few years but we really all got so much closer in the last year and that makes the goodbyes even harder.

Then this afternoon the dreaded goodbye with my friend K happened. It kind of snuck up on us in the middle of a bunch of other stuff we were doing so we were okay at the moment but I cried the entire way home after seeing her. I am going to miss so much about her, and her companionship for me is just a part of it. I love her family like it was my own and I know my life will feel very empty without them here to keep me amused and busy.

I am glad I didn't have to do an airport goodbye with anyone....just the anticipation of it would have been too much for me, especially with our trip too.

I wish they didn't have to go but I know that they are going onto a new phase and they are looking forward to it even though they will miss their time here with us.

We love you all....and wish you the best. Please stay in touch and let us know if we can send any little bits of the island your way so you won't feel so far away....
