We left after Sacrament meeting so that we could be back for the last 2 hours of our ward. It was
Tonight started the goodbyes. I'm not good at this whole "goodbye" thing. It's hard. I still don't think I fully realize how hard it's going to be. People will slowly start to leave for home this week. But I'll still have some people around, so I'll be fine. Then I'll go to Jessica's so I'll be happy to see her. And then I'll go home and be happy to see my family. Then about a month from now, it'll hit. I'm really not looking forward to that. In fact, it's stressing me out quite a bit. More than finals.
BUT, it's worth it. Making the kind of friends I made this year means hard goodbyes but wonderful memories. I wouldn't trade my friends for the world. Heavenly Father has blessed me so much this year. I consider my friends some of my greatest blessings. They are an answer to my prayers.
P.S., if you don't want to read a lot about goodbyes and whining about not seeing my BYU friends all summer (and 2 years for the guys!) then I would avoid my blog for the next week or so.
