Endings

Tonight was Lexi’s piano recital, the grand finale to all our activities in Illinois. Tomorrow all of our belongings are being loaded into 2 big trucks for the trek to Oklahoma. Everything is going into storage for the time being. We close on this house June 20 and haven’t purchased another one yet. I am surrounded by boxes, all taped and labeled. My laundry is done, cabinets are empty and bathrooms are clean.

Any time I have to say goodbye, I cry. Any time anyone ever has to say goodbye, for any reason, I cry. I am excited beyond words to be going home, but I’ve made some really sweet friends here. Vivien, Laddy, Martha, Lisa and Sarah are a few I’m really going to miss. I will cry….and smile.
