Time is short

I actually packed a suitcase today.  I’ll probably have to unpack it and re-pack it a time or two before I leave, but it’s a start.  The support of friends here has been invaluable.  Over the past few days I’ve sifted through thousands of pictures documenting my family’s lives over the past 30 years and it’s been an incredible walk down memory lane….

It seems odd to be leaving this house where I’ve lived for 26 years, seen my kids grow up, and hosted so many wonderful neighborhood and kid’s parties.  It’s been a great place to live–despite recently being declared a sink-hole house, I think of it fondly as ‘mine’.  This is MY neighborhood, these are MY neighbors, MY trees, MY memories……and yet what a demonstration that the pieces forming our lives are really only lent to us.

I will miss you all terribly.

  5. Hey Linda,
    Great to hear from you prior to your departure on a long adventurous journey. I’m so thrilled to hear about the goodness that you plan to share in other areas of the world. You will be amazing and others will be blessed to receive your many gifts; care, experience, and empathy. Best to you. Look forward to learning about your journeys. -Susie

    Eg Hey Woman! I am so proud of what you are choosing to do and to call you my friend. I will think of you and pray for your safe keeping every day. The United States Peace Corps! Wow! You are amazing! Hey, if you learn Skype, I’ll try to too! 🙂 Have a great time – you will be returning from service in Macedonia at the same time I retire from Lyme Central after 30 years. Maybe then we can have a new adventure together! Godspeed my Wesr Chester friend! Love Always, Winnie
