"Don't cry because it's over...smile because it happened." ~Dr. Suess
Which is weird to me because I cried when I got here....I cried for months. And then these people...these harsh as your winter people....they got to me. They creeped up on me like your spring. And before I realized what was happening, they felt as warm as one of your perfect summer days out at the cape. And now I hate to go....I hate to just fly away like your autumn leaves. It feels like surrender. And I pray for my new friends. I know they don't need us, but they need Him. The truth is, He will stay here, like my tulips. Those bulbs of faith will make their way up through once frozen ground. He will see to it.
And I will try to smile.
