three see yah laters and one farewell...

So far this year has held several goodbyes.

Nathan left after a four day mini-vacation with us in Mexico, Meesha left after eight months here in Belize, Spencer left after living here for 16 months, and Tom's friend Marcus passed away after only 43 years on this earth.  Saying 'see yah later' is easier than saying farewell. and yet each parting leaves a sting of loss.

I know that there will be some sweet and joyful times ahead in this year...but for now...we are feeling weary of all the letting go.    


  1. Hi Alida, I will pray for you, for God to renew and refresh you. To lift you up and to send you new people who will bless you and bring you much joy
    God bless

  3. blessings and Amen....
    Life is full of goodbyes, its a blessing when we learn the gift of goodbye.

    May Marcus's soul rest in peace.

  4. Lots of emotions come with the hellos and goodbyes. I'm also praying for God to comfort your heart, renew and refresh you and bring new blessings to you.
    I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend also.
