I hate goodbyes. Once I didn’t go to a “farewell party” friends planned as I was heading for a new job .

Tonight is like that gut wrenching feeling. I wanted to make you friends dinner, cakes, posters and cards. They didn’t want that- i let my feelings get hurt- probably like my work party folks felt like when I ditched the soirée. (Rumor has it they bought a cool red leather computer bag lol) I have had the best friendship, love, compassion and caring from neighbors R and J for many years. After we purchased the house back then, turns out they were truly family, Grandma’s brothers son and daughter-in-law. They have always been like a mom and dad to me. Helping me start the stupid lawnmower, coming to C and C dance recitals, supporting me when I was unemployed and taking care of Carolynne. Let me tell you, not many show up to help you for that. These new renters- Lucky people, far more than they even realize are renting R and J’s house, as they move another stage in their mountain house. I want them to be happy, I love them, I want to have them stay here and love them more and help them in this stage in their life. Selfish selfish, and I should be more ashamed. I’m not. I’ve been sick with dread at the change, marking “x”es on the calendar. They would look out the window to make sure I got home okay, feeding our cats when on vacay. Helping jump my car when I left the lights on. The only thing I keep thinking- we don’t have pictures of us all together. Random. February 11 sucks. I love R and J so, but gotta let ‘me go.

Roger,Joe, Kelly and Anna Laura- sweet memories

A place to return to my writing, to start amid the plethora of social media outlets, of which it’s hard to be heard, harder yet to believe the perfect selfies and perfect lives. I’m a Lover of four leaf clovers, wildflowers, second chances and lucky pennies. When that time comes, I hope to have left the world a little better than I found it. Let’s create, laugh and be kind to all.
