Saying goodbye...

Barbie and Josiah, summer 2007

It's not easy to say goodbye... especially when you have to say it to a friend whom you know you won't see very often... especially when you don't have that many friends to begin with. As sad as it was for us to say goodbye to our dear friends last week, I'm truly excited for them to move back to CA, which I know they always wanted to do, and hope their new friends will treat them well. If not, they'll have to answer to me.

last Friday, before parting our ways

And of course, it makes my heart ache that I won't be able to see this little girl more often. She just had to turn out so cute that you can't get that sweet face out of your mind. Not fair!

We shared many happy moments together, laughed together, and cried together too. I won't forget our dinners, trips to the bakery and just visits for no other reason but to spend some time together. There's no way to explain how much all this means to someone who doesn't make friends easily, who chooses friends that become her soulmates, not just casual acquaintances...
