This weekend has been one of farewells. We had a surprise farewell that our family came to on Saturday, a time of goodbyes at church, a going away party that most of our youth came to yesterday, and my work gave me a farewell lunch today. We are nearing the end of our South Carolina stay.
It has been so weird though. During all of these farewells I haven't really felt any emotion. I don't know if it hasn't hit me yet or if I am just not grasping how big of a deal this is, but I never seem like any goodbye is for real. Maybe that is true. Maybe all of these goodbyes will turn into "until next time."
I have been blessed by the people around me at Mt. Horeb and at Palmetto GBA. God has guided me through every situation and I have been learning so much. I know that all those around me were extremely instrumental into making me the person I am today. So to all my South Carolina friends, "until next time." I love you and we will be praying for you.
