Goodbye Again

Make new friends but keep the old;
One is silver and the other's gold.

This week we again say "goodbye" to a homeschooling family in our area. (Well, here in the Midwest, our "area" includes places a couple of hours away.)

It's the second time this year that we've sent prayers to accompany really great friends on their journey to new home. Do you ever get used to that?

It reminds me of my teaching days in Ft. Wayne. Our school had a good number of seminary families who would be in the area only a couple of years. The adults had this in mind regularly. But the kids didn't seem to notice most of the time--they cared deeply for one another without looking to the time they would go their separate ways. They made every day count.

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends
 will leave footprints in your heart.-Eleanor Roosevelt
