My parents are gone. This never gets easier. It's always sad. And I am grateful for the sadness that comes with really loving. Gratitude is becoming my practice in these departure days. Recounting the moments that were graciously given, and giving thanks for them. It is the best way forward.
Since I've been having too much fun to show you all the pics, I'll post them up today while I have a few minutes. In just one hour, I'll be back in the grip of language class and vacation will be officially over!
