Bittersweet Goodbye's

Well, the time had come to say farewell to everyone.  Moving day was coming, regardless of if we wanted it to or not.  I said my goodbyes over a 2 day period of time.  I think that it helped not having to tell everyone "bye" at the same time. 

This is my Gentiva family.  I said goodbye to them on September 22nd at our weekly meeting.  They had a lovely surprise party planned for me!  I will miss them all.  Such a good group to work with.

 This is one of my many lunch dates with Megan before I left.  We brought along the kiddos this time, Bella (Megan's daughter) and Peyton (My sister's daughter).  We ate at Old Town Grill and it was so good! 

 I said goodbye to Peyton the night before we left.  I think I had the hardest time telling her goodbye.  She is such an angel.  I can't imagine life without her!

My sweet sister, Shelby.  It was so hard saying goodbye to my sisters.  We have always been so close, I know that won't change.

 My sweet sister, Lorrie.  She came home from Auburn to tell me goodbye.  So sad :(  She is my baby.  

 Joc.  What else can I say?  He is so funny!  He keeps me laughing and I will definitely miss him!  By the way, this is Shelby's boyfriend and Peyton's dad.

My precious friend, Megan.  She came by on the morning that we left.  I'm so glad she stopped by!  I will miss her so much!  She is my lunch buddy and phone pal.  The phone calls will not stop.  We just won't have so many lunches together (and probably save a lot of money!)

Saying goodbye to the people I love was not easy.  My new saying is "I'll see you soon then", taken from one of my favorite movies of all time, Dear John.  When I talk to my family, I try to end on that note...I'll see you soon then.  It helps me, at least a little bit.  I didn't capture all my goodbyes on camera but they know who they are.  I'm already planning on coming home the weekend before Thanksgiving.  I hope it works out, I can't wait to see everyone!
