Jeric and I, we have a life to build together and I can't wait to start this with him. I have no doubt we'll make it through any challenges in life as we have overcame so much already. And from Jeric's family I've seen first hand how distance really doesn't matter when it comes to Love. That a family and a couple can remain close no matter how far they are from each other. Being 5000 something miles away from my family will not stop me from skypeing, from text messaging, from calling, from visiting. From doing all that I can to stay close and connected with family and friends.
My flight leaves around 2pm on December 30th. My last worship service at Burien was today, tomorrow will be my last day as Burien's LOS Secretary. I'm really going to miss the brethren from Burien, especially my LOS family.
Seattle, you've been great to me! And you've been my home for the last 15 years... and I'm going to miss your beautiful landscape, but definitely not your early morning traffic and rain.
What I'm going to miss most for sure is you Ruby, my Nissan Altima. Since high school you've been my car. You've gotten me to cheer practices, football games, to my first date, my college classes, to my college graduation, to my first job, to my bus stops, to church... and even though you have 182,000+ miles in you I will never trade you in for any other car, not even a white Lexus SC430. They've got nothing on you. I'm going to miss you but I'll come back for you I promise!!!
