Where do I start?

If I’m honest (which I am) the reason it took soooo long for a new blog post is that it was DJ’S TURN! We spent a lovely Saturday at a plantation with his family, so he was supposed to share. Regrettably this is turning into Megan’s blog about St. Thomas -_- maybe we could get some naggy comments to help him along? 😉
Anywho, I guess the best place to start is with “goodbye”. Let’s make it quick- like pulling off a Bandaid.







Let’s see… students, church, family, friends, airport goodbye; yep, gang’s all here.

I saw this quote on Pinterest that said, “If you are brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.” – Paulo Coehlo
There’s so much irony in this quote for me because I feel like it perfectly depicts my hopes for this journey. Saying goodbye was by far the hardest aspect and required the most bravery, yet I wouldn’t have had the courage without those I had to leave. In summation, saying goodbye was perhaps the most difficult obstacle I’ve ever faced, but I was able to witness love and support that most people don’t get all at once until they’re no longer alive to see it. I also found a new appreciation for the people and things I left behind which I believe will further motivate me to withstand the distance to maintain these incredible relationships.

I feel like I should stop here for now. We’re getting a tune up on “Lil’ Beast” (our island SUV) tomorrow, so I’ll have plenty of time to give an island update while I wait around all day.

I leave you with some lovely wisdom from C.S. Lewis

Bigger Story

Our lives are stories that interconnect and weave together into a greater, much bigger story of love, grace, and redemption.
