john’s sister ruth and brand new husband mahlon are moving to new york. so far away. right now. they stopped in on their way home from their honeymoon on monday night and i kept dragging out the actual goodbye. so today me and john and sam met them at the sandwich shop for one last lunch together before they left.
i’m still not liking the idea of getting used to life with them so far away. i didn’t want to think about it.. but now i don’t really have that luxury anymore. cuz they’re gone. that’s how life is, i know. letting people go as they move on to new paths and dreams and directions in life. and we can’t hold on. my mom always told me to hold people with open fingers.
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. ~From the movie Annie
i love you guys. and i’ll miss you more than you know. have an awesome new life in new york with all the best.
