I knew this day was coming but I was not prepared for it. The reality of the situation had not sunk in that my dear friend Lynn whom I have been "doing life" with for the past decade was leaving the island and I was her ride to the airport.
I knew I wanted to give her a card, but I put off creating it to the very last minute. I just couldn't bring myself to making it, it just made everything so final. So with just a few minutes left before I had to pick her up I used some of my new products to make a simple card to say farewell.
To create this card I used the new A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack that coordinates with our new Foxy Friends stamp set. Now that I think about it, its kind of perfect for Lynn cause she is definitely one of my Foxiest friends, the girl has never taken a bad picture in her life!!
When I arrived the tears were already flowing as she said goodbye to her amazing neighbors. These are people I have come to know and love as we've had stamp a stack's at Lynn's house for the past three years. See what I mean about her not taking a bad picture, you'd never know she had been crying off and on all morning.
We made lots of memories in this home over the years but its not coming to the house I will miss but the people who lived there that were such a big part of my life. Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope". It is those words that I hold on to as I say Aloha to Lynn and her family trusting the God has a perfect plan for them as they start a new chapter in their life.
I am grateful for this past decade and all the precious moments that we shared. I know that side by side or miles apart, friends are forever, close to the heart.
I love you my friend, you are loved and you'll be missed.
