Monday Moments – Saying Goodbye

Today it’s me in the Goodbye Chair. I’ve watched my friends sitting here so many times, said so many tearful. I’ve watched them receive flowers and cake and gifts, listened to all the stories of how they’ve impacted people’s lives in such positive ways.

And today it’s me.

And I’m listening to people thank and praise me for things I’d forgotten long ago, and I’m truly grateful and taken aback by their kindness and generosity. But my heart is so heavy, and I keep looking out of the window at the pale spring sunshine and wishing I wasn’t sitting here.
