I know that I have said it before, but we have REALLY GREAT friends. Friends from all walks off life – childhood, high school, boarding school, college, grad school, employment, church and everything in between.
It has always been important for me to journey with people and be in relationship with people from all walks of life. While I am really looking forward to making wonderful friends in Nicaragua, I am grieving the loss (or the change that is inevitable) with my friends here.
I know that my friendships can be maintained and I HOPE that they will grow, but I also acknowledge that they will alter. Everyone has told me that “not much will change in three years” and while I hold onto that, I know some things will.
I have come to understand that friendships go through different seasons, but I still have difficulty accepting this.
Amigos out there, you know who you are. Know that you are loved and play an important role in my life. I look forward to seeing where God brings you, thank-you for allowing me to be a part of your journey. I am who I am because of you! And remember, there will be a quaint little home in Managua looking forward to a knock on the door!
**These pictures are from the last couple of weeks. I should have been more diligent about photographing all of our coffee dates, happy hours, walks, dinners etc., but here are a few.
