Scott just left to collect Yolie and Kaleb and the Airstream and head west. He and Mr. Moon had one more transaction to complete and look what's in my yard now.
Good thing we have a big yard.
I wrote Yolie this morning that my heart was sort of breaking. And also that sometimes when we meet someone, we realize that there had been spaces empty and waiting, shaped just for them in our hearts.
"Oh hello. There you are."
I had Yolie and Scott and Kaleb-shaped places in my heart and they are no longer empty and today, on this beautiful windy day in March, the people whose shapes fit those places are leaving but somehow, they leave without taking themselves from my heart.
They are going to stop in Apalachicola and that makes me so happy. They will get to see some more of the Florida I love.
So yes. I hate to see them go but they say they will come back and I just feel very lucky that we got to spend this time together now. And I know that they are on a journey and there is such a big wide world for them to discover. Some people journey in big ways and some in small. I am one of those. But that, too, is okay.
And May is about to journey into her new life, married to her Michael and she's been searching for the right song to walk down the aisle to. I shot her a text this morning with a suggestion and she already had that exact same song in her head and I think it will be the one.
I won't tell you the name of the song although I am sure you know it. It is one of the most beautiful songs ever written and it is perfect for coming togethers and for taking-leaves. Both.
Well. I have much to do and better get off my ass and get on with it, my heart swollen to three times its size, thus overspilling through my eyes.
It is a day to be humbled by love.
