Well, my friends Amy & Melanie left early this morning. We stayed up all night and left for the 3 hour drive to the airport at 1:00 a.m. I stalled as long as I could, but had to be sensitive to my taxi-friend Jo’s timing. So shortly after check-in, but another hour before they would board, we said a tearful and prayerful goodbye and I returned home, where I’ve slept off and on most of the day.
We had a wonderful time, and I was going to wait to post anything until I could manage a decent recap. But as I lay in bed reflecting on our sweet friendship, my mind drifted to the song that (as I previously mentioned) Amy and I sang together at our high school graduation. So I thought it would be a fitting “Vaya con Dios” tribute on the day that they have left. I love you my dear friends and no matter what happens, I know I will see you on the other side!
