June 12, 2010

saying goodbye

today we said goodbye to our friends
jeanette and don
they live here in roatan for 6 months 
and they live in st. louis for the rest of the year.

i went over this morning to help them 
clean and close up the house.
it was the least i could do.

for some people they avoid goodbyes
the pain is too great
and so they get stand off-ish as the day 
well.. not me.
we have moved many times
and have said goodbye to many family and friends
and i value those brave enough to stick around
til the end.

i took this photo from their house.
i will miss this view from their place.
we have shared meals, sunsets, and games
together at their place
and i will miss them greatly.

a true friend helps themselves to whatever is in your fridge!

today, if you have friends nearby
let them know you value them
and that life without them would
be awful.

i am telling you... it isn't easy

"it is better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all.."
