Making friends takes effort. Getting to know them requires energy, focus, a little time and space. I think that’s probably why parting is so hard. You’ve given a part of yourself to these people and when they leave they take it with them.
That happened to me today as John and Pam pulled out of their Carmel home. These two people entered my life 18 months ago and quickly captured a piece of my heart. Their parting was painful but not final: Wherever they go, they will carry with them a portion of my soul.
It is a pieces of my heart that I’m happy to share.
