This weekend was a bitter sweet weekend for me. On Sunday, Shayna and I bid adeu to our friends Darla and Bryant.
It was bitter because we no longer will get to see them. They are moving to Texas which is pretty much the equivalent to moving to another country. They have their own weird laws there, everyone talks funny, and quite honestly every texan I've ever met loves Texas more than the US.
It's sweet for the same reason... Just kidding. :-)
It's sweet because Bryant his finally achieved his lifelong goal of being a gov't agent. I don't know if I'm allowed to say who he works for (that happens a lot in DC). Quite honestly I don't even know what he does. All I know is that he's wanted to do this for a long time and he is so totally thrilled with where God is putting him (even if it is in Texas).
I don't keep up with friends when I move away or they move away in the sense that we talk on the phone a whole lot or correspond with emails. I see life as temporary relationships really and that you should enjoy them while they are with you. Don't get me wrong, I have friendships for life but that doesn't really mean I have the same relationship with a person for my entire life. I guess that's a pretty bad attitude to have, but really, who keeps up with every one of their friends? Especially those that you hardly ever see. I think I'm just being a bit more open about it.
I won't say good bye to Darla and Bryant because they aern't dying (even though they are moving to Texas), but I'll say have a nice life. Hopefully we'll meet up again.
