until we meet again



I really really really hate goodbyes.
Really.
I've been lucky in my life, I haven't had too many really hard goodbyes to deal with yet.

I remember being in grade 3 and my best friend was moving away.
I felt empty saying goodbye for the last time and walking home from her house
knowing she would not be there the next time I walked by.
To this day, I remember the feeling.

This weekend, we were at a fantastic party to send off some wonderful friends on a new adventure.
This past year, two of my good friends have moved away and it feels like I'm
that kid whose best friend was leaving.
These girls became special in my life and were there during important times in my life.
I am not the kind of person that lets people in easily.
When I find someone I really connect with, it's pretty special to me.

I know that we will always keep in touch and be in each other's hearts and who woulda thought I'd say it but
thank goodness for Facebook! ; P

I value all my friendships so much, you know who you are girls! xo
And to the ones I said goodbye to this year and this weekend, let's not say goodbye and instead,
*until we meet again*

Goodbyes are horrible! And I know this because after I got married my parents and sisters moved back to Brazil, and I stayed in FL with just the hubby. It's really hard but with time it gets easier! Hang in there!!

I never liked goodbyes either. But with computers it is easier to stay connected. And look forward to the happy get-togethers in the future!

Hello Sherri

I can not believe the similarity we share

to quote you

Last christmas saw me "lose" 3 very special friends and I was devastated. They all moved away to far away places.
I cried! My heart felt so heavy - so empty. I hope for the day they return.

My kettle has been lonely for their return and I have had the hope of my door bell ringing like it used to for the impromptu cup of tea!

I understand you Miss Sherri x

Thanks, ladies! Your comments are sooo appreciated.

Oh gosh, I'm so sorry you are missing your friends, Loulou. I cried too. It's so difficult isn't it?! Thank you for the comment, it helps to know we all have the same experiences and feelings in this wacky, wonderful life!
