Saying Good-bye

The thing I love the most about the life we live is the vast number of people we meet and the great friends we have made. The downside of our transient lifestyle is that we, inevitably, must say good-bye to the people we love. Last night I said good-bye to one of those good friends.
We met two years ago when, after learning where our house was going to be, we took a shuttle to the neighborhood to have a look around. Rach and her husband invited us into their home to have a look around (the layout is the same as ours). And so it began, neighbors first, friends always. Even Christo was enamored with Scout, their German Shepherd.
So, to you my friend, I'll miss you. I will continue to pray for you as you face uncertainty and challenges. You will always be close to my heart.

No love, no friendship, can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever. ~Francois Mocuriac

This is one of the hardest parts abour our life, isn't it? Also one of the most wonderful. I miss her already, too.

You made me cry...

I miss you guys so much. I hate this part of our life. I can't believe I've moved twice since I met you! BUT, if it weren't for this life I never would have met you so there is a silver lining. Oh, and we're going to live next to you in WA when we all retire!
