Smiling (on the inside)
Last night was our goodbye party. Stories were told, games were played, cocktails were flowin' and a few tears were shed. It was one very emotional night. My heart feels full when I think of the people in my life that I have grown to love over the last 5 years, and those I just recently became close with as well. You can't place a time frame on true friendships, they just sort of happen and grab hold of you and in turn make you feel whole inside. Yesterday felt more like a celebration of these lasting friendships rather than a farewell to the life we have known.
It's nice to feel loved. And to love.
I'm going to lie back down for a while but for now here is a quote I'd like to share from the book, The Shack:
"You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you."
