My heart is truly full. Tonight I said goodbye to some very wonderful people in my life. I know it is not goodbye for forever, just goodbye for now, sort of like a ‘see you later’. I know that this is the path that I need to be taking. So many of the people I saw tonight are the people that have pushed me to make this decision. I just feel so loved. I think that these goodbyes warrant a bit of emotion. Lives are going to change, my siblings will get married, have kids and move houses, all while I am gone. And even though I love the people that came, I probably won’t see some of them ever again. Some how, life moves on, even without me. This will be harder than I thought.
But the party was awesome. There was a second showing of a botswana cake.
And we had karaoke. I hope there are karaoke bars in Botswana or at my training site. If not, I have no idea what I am going to be doing to have a good time. Read a book? knit a scarf? can anything be as fun as singing ‘where is the love’ while Peter trys to DJ by changing the key a billion times? I don’t think so.
I am one lucky girl. All of my siblings decided to come to town for my farewell party (also my mom’s birthday… sorry I stole the spotlight!). I am going to miss them soo much, but I know they are going to visit me on the other side of hemisphere so it’s no big deal. nbd.
