When We Have to Say Goodbye

20150603_KarinaAllen_Beginning

Friends come and go. True. Friendships change. True. Goodbyes happen. True. This is my life. I have had many a friend move away . . . friends that I love, but this time it’s different.

I have a couple of dear friends who are about to move away to other states. They have been my everyday life people. So, I’m processing. I have feelings. I have feelings about my feelings.

This is becoming a “thing.”

I’ve never really had a best friend. I know a ton of people, but few have been a part of my “inner circle.” But these two friends and I have known each other almost 10 years. We’ve experienced a ridiculous amount of highs and lows.

We’ve walked through marriages, divorces, children, misunderstandings, offenses, intense prayer, worship sessions, and times of serving together. We’ve laughed and cried and had deep conversations in the wee hours of the morning. We’ve spoken life, hope, healing, and purpose into each other’s spirits. We’ve had great mountaintop experiences, low valley struggles, and everything mundane in between. That’s a great deal of life!

It’s difficult to imagine all of that coming to an end.
