The countdown, the temporary sadness and the "die-hards"

Sorry...It's been a few days. Oh my goodness it's October already! It seems only yesterday I was applying. It all happened so fast. Before I know it I'll be boarding the plane and saying "See you next year!" Someone told me the other day " never forget you are where God wants you to be, life happens and always for a reason" I thought that was pretty powerful and so true.
Today, I talked to my recruiter and she told me,I would have my visa number next week! Now it's off to the Korean Consulate in NYC to take care of the rest. Looks like I'll be taking a few days in the city :) then it will be time to book my flight!
I came home from a wonderful weekend with my besties to find my mother had upgraded my "T1 and T2" luggage to a very snazzy Samsonite Trio. Now I have more room for more stuff...Ugh...! I was supposed to be minimizing my list. Speaking of family, I was sitting with my little, and we were chatting about God knows what, and I stopped and looked at my teenage sister realizing that the next time I see her she'll be 20. It made me sad for a moment, as she smiled at me asking "what's wrong?" I thought all the moments I take for granted that I will miss in the coming year...
I know, I'm getting a little sappy .I tears, but I wanted to take a minute and talk about friendship. Over the course of one's lifetime, an individual acquires a myriad of friends. But there are a select few that I like to call "die-hards". These are the friends who are there through the bad hair days, break-ups, and life changing moments, and are only ever but a phone call away no matter the hour. In the recent months I've been through all of the above mentioned! My "die-hards" have been there with me, every step of the way. They've been supportive of the changes I've made in my life and continue to encourage me on this road of self discovery. Not every woman can say she has these type of friends in her corner. I'm glad to say that I don't know where I'd be without my "die-hards". They are my words of comfort, my pillars or strength, and my source of constant laughter. After spending some much needed Q.T. with my "die-hards" this weekend, it saddens me to leave these wonderful women behind as I travel to Korea. But I know, no matter what, when, or how they are all but a phone call away!

Confucius say: Die-hard friends are like quality toilet paper...hard to find but always a comfort when you seriously need it
