|Leaving Manteo 06/24/2011|
Home is where your heart is and if it's with the people you call or have adopted as family, you'll always be home, always. Elisabeth wrote a very sweet note on Facebook last week about the changes happening in her life and of her thoughts on our departure. She and her husband Mike married on the waterfront of Washington, NC yesterday. There are pictures I'll share, after this little tidbit from E's special note(love you sista. This time has been special):
"While driving from the city that nurtured me to the city that is shaping me I thought about all of these changes occurring in my groups world - then I thought...when my brother and his wife leave Little Washington, NC on Sunday, they will honk the horn two times, give a wave and that will be the last time I will see them for some time.
Goodbyes, changes and transitions are wonderful, powerful and scary all at the same time and to all parties involved there is always a little bit of uncertainty. For me and my change and transition….I am ready to be a wife, for my brother and his wife’s transition I am not quite ready for the last two honks and a wave, but I know it means I love you and we are on our way."
We're so lucky to be a part of a very special group. I'm glad to have people in our life who are so loving and supportive. It's made planning and following through with this crazy adventure soooo much easier. We are so grateful. And if I can offer any advice on how to say farewell...well..we're all just going to have to do what comes naturally. Let's not say goodbye, but give each other a hug and a smile. To our familly: We'll see you again soon, and we love you.
