No More Good-byes

I'm sick of saying "good-bye". In the past couple of years we have sent friends to live all over the world. With dear family living in Texas, Colorado, Indiana, and Uganda is seems we are saying our good-byes just moments after we have greeted with hugs and hellos. This week we had to do the dreaded deed once again. We are sending our good friends, Tim & Cheryl, Rylee, Skyler, & Kendall, back to their other home in New Mexico. It really stinks.

This is another reason why I am looking forward to heaven with such great anticipation - no more "good-bye"! Won't that be great?? We just get to hang with our friends and family, laughing and joking and bantering and generally having a great time together. I don't know, though - Tim & Cheryl may get us into some trouble up there. We'll have to see.

I'll be seeing you guys at Pepperdine next week, and then two weeks later spending some good girl time in New York with Cheryl, so I guess this doesn't really count as a good-bye this week. Right? In honor of some of my biggest laughs this year, Cheryl, I'll translate for you:

Ill be see'n you guys at Pepperdine N-to-tha-izzext week, n then two weeks lata spend'n some good girl tizzy in New York wit Cheryl, so I guess this doesnt really count as a good-bye this week. Riznight?*

And while you are getting settled in NM, don't forget to unpack your Business Socks! Love you guys!

Hey Kristi, it's Jacque Rimer. I am hoping you remember me. Brett and I are moving back to NM this summer and I was just wondering what part of the state your friend is moving?

Jacque, I had a great time with John & Amy when I was down there last month. I asked them about you, and they got me all caught up. Glad you're moving back!

Thanks Kristi! You have all been such a blessing to us. We are so thankful that we were able to be part of PUMP these last few months. We will really miss all of you dearly. I am very excited about seeing you at Pepperdine and of course our trip! Good times ahead! We would be happy to connect with Jacque and Brett. May God be with you and your lovely family! Love you!

I agree about saying good bye and usually avoid them by saying "see you later". But I am excited about all the hello's we're going to have in Heaven!
