How do you say goodbye? – Wednesday April 23, 2008


 I just spent the most delightful afternoon with my dear neighbor girl.  Last school year she came over every Wednesday after school for homework club.  We didn’t have homework club this year because they have all kinds of after school activites, but she has tired of the after school program and has begun to come over every Wednesday again.  She does her homework.  We talk about my wedding.  She’s all excited about it and wants to know all the details.  She helps me plan.  She asks questions.  We play games.  We eat dinner.  We just spend time together.  And today we talked about some heavy things. . .  some sad things.  How do I leave?  I’m excited for the next chapter in my life, but so sad to be leaving this place.  I wish the two could be combined somehow.  But at the same time, I realize that leaving is the right thing for right now.
